I put my braquesque 10 yr old painting in the school parents' night show and ..blaah! people would ask me: " but what does it MEAN??" oh. I didn't get the message across. So I started adding words. Mail art is the balance of reification and the restricted rhetoric of ordinary language (pictures 'n words). In music, words make opera happen; the same rule applies in the visual arts.
13.09.16 Dare Mister Ian C. Dengler, ...I haven't really scoped today's offering but I know it's gonna be another classic ( "One-A-Day-Classic" (class act). Do you read a lot? Sincelery, Richard Canard
I've just spent an inordinate amount of time clicking through your collection of artistamp photos and chuckling out loud… I can't even choose a favorite--they're all wonderful! Thanks for your sense of humor and great artistry, Ian! ...Wow.
