Putting something in the mail for you today... Thorougly enjoyed "Is Saitch Yer Daddy?" blog. I know little of East London and virtually nothing about West Ham soccer but there are such strong echos of a lost time in your blog…"
Went to Printed Matter in New York for a panel about Ray Johnson, an artist I deeply love. Crackerjack Kid tossed boxes into the audience and I caught one. He said that if we added to and returned we'd be on his mailing list. Of course I wanted to be, so I did. I'm an artist working in mixed media in New York City.
An artist that explored mail as a medium is Lenore Tawney. She is relatively unknown, but you may enjoy her postcard collages. A wonderful book of her mail collages is-- Lenore Tawney: Signs on the Wind, 2002. Google her for examples of her imagery. Let me know what you think. PS: thanks for favoriting what I post.
