RECEIVED: Asemic Text Weave Mail-Art from Sue Bowen (Norfolk, Virginia, USA)

Mail-art by IUOMA member Sue Bowen (Norfolk, Virginia, USA)

 

April 30, 2011 - Sue Bowen has joined the ranks of mail-artists creating text weaves. This includes Cheryl Penn (South Africa), Tina Festa (Italy), and Stephanie Blake (Alabama). A previous blog I wrote about Cheryl Penn's work goes into detail about how text weaves work as both random language generators and a continuation of an ancient, woman-centered tradition. Sue has extended the concept even further by adding asemic writing. I'm very pleased to have received this piece along with Sue's kind note on the reverse side:

 

 

Thank you so much, Sue! For a text weave retrospective, here is Cheryl Penn's language-centered piece from the January 19, 2011 blog. A definite classic:


 

Here's Tina Festa's text weave made with antiquarian paper from the July 31, 2010 blog:
