More Mail for E's Fan Club by Massimo Medola (Bologna, Italy)

Medola 8.30.2018 - 3

Add & pass sent by Massimo Medola (Bologna, Italy)

I was proud to feature much work by E – Ambassador of Utopia on blogs in the past. He was a great and generous friend. Still, I have never been sure…

This piece is wonderful! I'm not sure how it was made but it's extremely heavily textured. There's a lot of orange in it which somehow comes out pinkish in the photo. I love it! Then....…

"How to F---- Up Add & Pass" by Rafael Gonzalez (Spain)

I think this blog (link below) by long-time networker Rafael Gonzalez (Spain) is hysterical, especially given the amount of add & passes that are circulating via IUOMA-Ning.

Personally, I've always believed it's impossible to f---- up an add & pass. They're foolproof. Like so much mailart the idea of "anyone can do it" underlies the genre.

But Rafael - who has been doing mail art a long time - is worried that he is messing up the add & pass.

It should give us…

Trashbook & Ephemera by Jean-Philippe Gilliot (Saint Ghislain, Belgium)

Gilliot - 8.27.2018 - 1

Mail art by Jean-Philippe Gilliot (Saint Ghislain, Belgium)

 

August 27, 2018 - I am not familiar with Jean-Philippe Gilliott, and I do not believe he is an IUOMA member. But a quick search indicates he is well-known in the network and has done much work of note. I am thrilled to learn about and receive his work because I am a huge fan of the great Belgian collage artists, poets and correspondence artists, among them Little Shiva, Thierry…
