Received from Jon Foster, USA--1960s Light Sabre

1960s light sabre indeed. In all it's habit-forming glory. Perhaps Jon's mail art speaks for the 60s when people of that decade, among other things, were trying to get beyond the habits of thinking that were pervasive and repressive at that time. Thanks, Jon

Received from Arttower, Germany--Dance of the Molecule

At last! Someone has sent me goat mail art. Docile sheep will soon take their places in nativity scenes around the planet while goats will be scaling canyons with their Munder full of titillating junk from some farmer's shed, and their souls giddy with all of life's mischief-making opportunities. I like goats, I pretty much like any animal…

Mail from Douglas Galloway

I received this beautiful piece a few days ago. I am using it as a meditation tool. It's my Mandala. Don't know if I spelled that right. Anyway I know every pixel of your wonderful piece, Douglas. Thank you!

Crossroads - from Douglas Galloway

This is an interesting postcard from Douglas Galloway. I'm not quite sure which is the media he used to achieve this texture. The interpretation of it is also very open, I'm calling it crossroads, but then again, it might be something completely different in Douglas's mind. And anyway, not everything necessarily needs an interpretation. Art can be art just for the pleasure of looking at it, sometimes. That's my take.

Thanks… Continue

Received from Valentine Mark Herman, France--A Bit O' Brueghel

I know people here at IUOMA give many reasons why they are involved in mail art--a couple of those reasons: for the uplift and happiness it elicits. Val's sealed envelopes never cease to express those qualities. A hat-donner himself, Val manages to find amazing hats on people in art. The dialogue is laugh-out-loud, and I get a kick out of the hand-drawn birds that always put in…
