"Jayne, you shouldn't get me started. Here's one of the portable DKult shrines from the Trashpo group. You can see it's a triptych. (Poor DK, she never asked for any of that.)"

"And on the triptych genre - Marie Wintzer is French, from Alsace and I'm sure grew up Catholic. I suspect she started the triptych thing, which was just probably integral to her culture. Charming kind of - she used this form familiar to her.…"

"I was just recalling seeing many examples of Catholic triptych and diptych icons. Making triptych for m-a was a cool idea. I feel odd about asking, but did Karen pass away? You use was / were when you speak of her."

Triptych

Mail Art triptych by De Villo Sloan (NY, USA) for Karen Champlin (Illinois, USA) (circa 2013). Part of a call by Bifidus Jones (Minnesota, USA)

 

March 22, 2019 - In yesterday’s blog I mentioned the creation of mail art triptychs a few years back & promised to find some examples in the labyrinthine MinXus-Lynxus Archives. Ever true to my dear IUOMA friends, here are some examples from this interesting phase. The…

Cristina 3.20.2019 - 1

Mail art by IUOMA member Cristina Blank (Worthsee, Germany)

 

March 20, 2019 - I was thrilled to receive an envelope from old & dear mail art friend Cristina Blank in Germany. Both Cristina and her partner Jurgen Oliver Blank are wonderfully inventive & talented artists. They always lift the spirits & challenge the mind. Cristina Blank made some wonderful Trashpo and DKult-related pieces that I will not soon forget.

Of course! Thanks De Villo. With those I used watercolor and sumi ink with different brushes scribbling or simply staining. and folded into accordions.

Thank you for your friendship invitation and also for your kind comments about my artist book. I am very happy that you liked it. I am not in these pages very often because my private computer at home warns me about the fact that these pages are not protected and it refuses to open these, sorry. So I use these pages suddenly in our public library because this computer is co-working also with IUOMA pages. I wish all the best to you and hope to hear from you also in the future. Let´s make art and be happy!

DVS - yes absolutely, I am thrilled about AF2. The photo I uploaded on the group two weeks ago was the one from Jan H, though :)

Hi.  I enjoy reading your analysis/commentary of the various works/mail art/techniques circulating.  You provide historical perspectives that add to the rich medium in which we are involved.  I appreciate your contributions!  I think you should keep the A&P I sent you.  I found it pretty well complete.......and you seemed like one recipient who would likely appreciate it more than others.  That's why I sent it to you.  May it all continue.  Debra
