Mail art by IUOMA member Rebecca Guyver (Suffolk, UK)
March 23, 2015 - My last post of work by Rebecca Guyver featured her doodle collabs with Queen of Trash Diane Keys (Elgin, Illinois, USA).
That package, however, was characteristically brimming with new work. I am thrilled to showcase the remainder of it here. The work above is very impressive and has asemic elements. Here is the reverse side:
Some Gutai action has enhanced this piece (the white flecks). Rebecca Guyver’s work is worthy of the Correspondence Art designation. By either habit or design, perhaps both, she employs the charming conventions of letter writing that are rapidly fading in the world, which establish an intimacy and continuity, among other things.
A beautiful handmade envelope was enclosed inside the larger mailing. Within this envelope was a letter. Recently I have seen several instances of envelopes inside envelopes.
I will not display the content of the letter itself, as it is a narrative concerning DKULTUK business.
I am always excited by packages received from Rebecca Guyver. This recent material with DK doodle collabs, splendid correspondence and art has brightened several, dark winter days.
