Mail art by IUOMA member Erin Young (Innisfil, Ontario, Canada)

August 15, 2015 - Many thanks to Erin Young who so kindly sent me this stunning mail art. This is a wonderful abstract piece and roughly post-card-size. Information is included on the reverse side:

Erin Young is wowing the network with the FAB pieces she is mailing. Based on what I see appearing online, she has a wide-ranging talent. This piece that I am so thrilled to add to the archives explores chaos and order. The colors are wonderful and the work has a tactile, haptic dimension as well. For me, the piece does invoke the idea of chaos; but it has the suggestion of underlying unity and structure as well, especially in terms of shape. Here is a related piece that was also enclosed:

This was a very helpful inclusion in terms of understanding the process, and note the finger painting. Erin also included a kind note:

These (above) arrived in an envelope:

And the reverse:

Again, many thanks to Erin Young!

I think I know what you mean, Erin. Great work. But it's not a complaint. I meant it as a compliment.
