Chucked through the atmosphere by Jon Foster, USA--The Blue Planet

2011 and Beyond

Back from self imposed exile as I complete a number of projects.  Imagine my surprise when Keith Buchholz requested that I contribute to an upcoming FLUXUS event in Chicago at the MCA (Museum of Contemporary Art).


It's been a busy year for me as an artist and I have greatly enjoyed my mail art and fluxus explorations. Attached is a showcase of my work that I shall play, pending approval, at the MCA.  Many thanks,…
