Nancy Bell Scott commented on De Villo Sloan's blog post Can Trashpo Endure in a Green World? Cor Reijn (Zaandam, Netherlands)
"Profound question in this piece. Can the answer be yes? There likely will always be wind through the streets and people dropping things accidentally or on purpose, unless humanity itself gets outlawed. Which might still happen. I've been afraid…"

"This history info from several IUOMA mail artists is wonderful, and I'm appreciating everyone's input and perspectives, including the various categories of boekies and thoughts on them. Have to admit, I was pretty bad at history in school…"

Can Trashpo Endure in a Green World? Cor Reijn (Zaandam, Netherlands)

Mail art by Cor Reijn (Zaandam, Netherlands) July 10, 2019 - I was elated to receive this wonderful card from good mail art friend – Cor Reijn – in the Netherlands. With this elegant and highly conceptual piece, Cor Reijn expresses an issue that I am confident many are pondering at this moment. (Yet no one before has been able to express it so perfectly!) Thank you Cor Reijn.I believe the question is something like: Can Trashpo (solely based in found, discarded material) endure in a world that…See More

"It seems to me that add&pass is completely random whereas Collabs and FB you know who the participants are. Does that sound acurate ?Much of the terminology used is still not clear to me. Nevermind. Art is still art and mail is still mail."

Cherub 7.6.2019 - 3a

Mail art by IUOMA member Cherub Ayers (Oxford, Ohio, USA)

 

July 8, 2019 - I am thrilled to welcome a rising star in the mail art constellations to my humble blog. At the MinXus-Lynxus blog I have already extended the customary “Howdy,” wink and secret MinXus handshake to a bright-eyed Tenderfoot who is practically a neighbor over yonder in Ohio: Cherub Ayers.

Hey DVS, I’ve been meaning to post this for some time,,,, Upon perusing Ourang Outang and some of your other work I noticed a theme. Quite often you create a diamond shaped image, which calls to mind a rebirth. To me it represents a literal birth canal or vagina. Would love to hear your thoughts on why diamond shapes are present in a great deal of your work.  Thanks! JBL

Dear De Villo. No, not great just fortuitous.  I addressed an envelope to Rysuke but decided I needed something larger.  Not wanting to waste the time I stuck the envelope front to another I found here - containing an electricity bill once upon a time - and it needed covering up so . . . the quickest way was to shred a magazine page.  I am not convinced it will survive the postal system but no doubt we shall see.

Thanks anyway for the encouragement.  At least now I know what to send you!

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!
