Mail-art by Kerri Pullo (Tucson, Arizona, USA) – the original “Kerri Arroz con Pollo” portrait

May 27, 2013 - This is Part II of a retrospective of work by Kerri Pullo. Part I featured Kerri’s asemic work, which is becoming more and more recognized, especially since her collab work with Guido Vermeulen (Belgium) that created such a network sensation. 

I have had the “Kerri Arroz Con Pollo” portrait for some time. When I was getting to know Kerri, I noted the similarity of her last name to Pollo – chicken in Spanish. This amused Kerri a great deal and inspired her to produce the work above, made with actual rice. Now the rice (arroz) has morphed into A Rose. And Kerri Pullo’s MinXus moniker is Miss Kerri A Rose Con Pollo.

Kerri Pullo and the MinXus-Lynxus Famous Artist Talent Scout Contest: Can YOU Draw the Mink?

A few of you might recall the MinXus-Lynxus Solar Festival 2012. We hosted events including the First International MinXus-Lynxus Art Exhibition that involved the Refrigerator Performances that took place simultaneously across the globe. The “Kerri Arroz Con Pollo” portrait was created for Solar Festival 2012 but was not displayed due to timing. Here is the reverse side:

We also sponsored the MinXus-Lynxus Famous Artist Talent Scout Contest. With just a dream and whole lot of talent, Kerri entered this piece in the contest:

Our panel of esteemed, distinguished judges awarded Kerri a Grand Prize for this effort. Now here is one facet of the other side of Kerri Pullo. She is a fantastic artistamp maker. She apparently struck a commemorative stamp based on her prize-winning work. You can see it on this envelope that has been entered into the archives:

Another beautiful stamp. Kerri uses an anna-mona-trixie multiple identity concept with which I am not entirely familiar. Here are more stamps from Kerri we decided to keep for the archive rather than use because they are so spectacular:

Kerri is a partner wuth me in the “GAsemics Series,” a vispo project. She is the creator of Asemic Mom who appears throughout the pieces. These Asemic Mom stamps have entered the archives:
