Victorian DaDa


Victorian DaDa

DeVillo Sloan inspired me to start this group, and I'd like help defining it, and would love to see other examples besides my own. 

This group is dedicated to mail art, perhaps with a time period theme (Pre-Raphaelite, Flapper, Byzantine, Edwardian, even modern day) of an elegant nature spiked with a Dada / Surreal twist. 

Elements can be added as creatively as the artist would like.... Or taken out. Nature is prevalent due to the Romantic floral effect and poetry (often cut & paste) is incorporated. An arm or leg can be truncated and repositioned. Woo Hoo! 

Or anything you feel like.

Thank you, and hope to see you here!

Thanks, De Villo Sloan, for seeing if you can find out anything. I'm just wondering, and I keep looking at those returned pieces.

Gin was on FB until at least August 2014. I kept in touch with her until my hiatus in late August through September then, unfortunately, kind of forgot. and lost touch.

She was commenting on many mail-art related posts, although I'm not sure what name she was using.

I'll check FB. I think she is/was friends with other mail-artists.

Does Anyone know Gin? I've had two pieces of Mail Art returned this summer. She'd sent me some very nice pieces and I was reciprocating. The address that I had was in Knoxville, TN, USA. Anyone? What happened to Gin?

more victorian DA or whatever......

Wow An. U.! That is a great painting.

The image I used came from postcard photo - maybe 1920s.

Victorian DaDa - hard to say what it is. I think Much of Gin's pieces are more 1920s - like Great Gatsby Era.

Love them both, De Villo!

The one you've sent to Gin reminds me of painting by Latvian painter Julijs Feders.
