Dada Dreams of Elvis Hair : : ATC by D. Woodward

Posted on February 24, 2016 at 12:26am 1 Comment

Denise Woodward sent this ATC in response to the recent conversation around dada . . .

I've received many wonderous ATCs from Denise, but I'll have to admit,

this one just stops me in my tracks. Brilliant.

Thank you again, Keith, for the wonderful Ostrich!

I posted it in the Banana group today and on the Animals blog.

Sorry for still not having replied by snail mail to your previous mail art. I hope you'll have some more patience..

Keith, wonderful postcard! I never expected to see an ostrich emerging from a banana, but all things are possible in Mail Art! The flip side is great, too!

Keith--who else would translate the Latin! I knew it had to be something clever. That's a Red Jungle cock on the lunar stamp, I think. It's beautiful. So much food for thought in this creation of yours.  Something will come to you later in the year--I'm exploring some new (to me) techniques to share with my iuoma colleagues.

Many thanks again!

Keith--your amazing postcard arrived very recently and has been added to my iuoma photo archive. I love the ostrich emerging from the banana. My comment: 'who is slippery as a banana skin and hides his head in the sand'. Love the artist stamp on the reverse--'the provisional bureaucrat' with an empty brain, plus the 'Resist' slogan. Yes we have to stiffen our spines and get our heads out of the sand! Thank you for a thought-provoking card.
