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!

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.

Holy crap, Carl, you're creating the whole Victorian DaDa Revival yourself. These pieces are great! I need to get down here more often.

Here's a piece Gin sent me not too long ago. Not sure if she ever plans on coming back.
