Received: Minimalist mail-art from Marie (Richmond, Virginia, USA)

October 18, 2010 - Marie has done a striking minimalist mail-art series using strips of paper (or even some other dense material) glued over a post-card size surface. This piece I received is about as stripped-down and economical as you can be without resorting to representations of emptiness. When I look at Marie's mail-art above, I notice that the varying thicknesses of the black… Continue

Bifidus' Anatomy of Doubt - from Bifidus Jones

Super happy to get this card from Bifidus. His work is so multi-dimensional, layered, focused and... it looks damn good. Amazing details all over.

My soul, myself,

my faculties. I'm sure

My guts, by brains,

My senses, who am I?

I am me, with my body/in my body/because of my body, standing right here on this map. I can feel, smell, hear, talk, think. I can hear my belly calling lunch time.… Continue

Clé à molette - from RCBz

A very baroque postcard from RCBz today. The 4th one I receive from His Highness, thank you!

A spanner, I believe, but a rather high-end one. The kind of spanner I can see very well being used at the Château de Versailles back in the days. You know, to tighten some golden bolts...

There's always the RCBz twist of course, and the plum blossom immediately brings us from France to Japan. A bit like me :-)

The back of the… Continue

Lovely postcard from Laurie Ljubojevic

Berliner snail - from Yara-Colette Lemke de Faria

Luftpost seems to like my mailbox these days, and I'm delighted. A very poetic snail has made it all the way from Berlin, thanks Yara-Colette! I like the idea of traveling by snail, comfortably seated, through blue sky and friendly clouds. The rough texture of the card is perfect for this allegory.

I'm very happy and proud to get this very first card of yours with your very first hand carved rubber stamp, Yara-Colette! I hope… Continue

Received: It's my Party and I'll cry if I want to mail-art from Cheryl Penn (Durban, Kwazulu Natal, South Africa)

October 18, 2010 - Cheryl Penn sent me these photos of artwork she did that was posted on her website. I just find the whole concept of the shadows and the figure somehow haunting. Much as you find a great deal of layering in her visual-verbal work, there is a great deal complex signification in Cheryl's art that lends itself to many possible interpretations. If I got into it here, I… Continue
