ZALOP Mail and Sewn Asemics from Cheryl Penn in South Africa!

Coming in with the last mail delivery before Greek Easter holidays is this ZALOP...and very 'Sewn Asemic" mail art from Cheryl. The stitching is so involved and is overlapping clear plastic that is overlapping more asemic writings:

layers of meaning!

Threads, stitches, marks, stamped letters...all joining atop one another..."the ties that bind"?

And on the reverse side: Calm. Serenity. Subtle effects of the stitches and threads. Gentle images,

almost animal forms...intriguuing.

Even the envelope has the asemic writings...and that magical Fluxus Word: ZALOP!

A BIG ZALOP thank you, Cheryl! Great piece, full of texture and "feelings"!

It's Cheryl's Speck Chick, for sure. But we all know that she's on vacation most of the time (the Spell Chick, not Cheryl).

;-))))) A spell "chick" or a spell check? But your spelling of the-the is correct,Cheryl, also of the word chick. 

Blame the typos on the new computer....and as Sloan has said: typos add to the asemic of it all !

(paraphrasing the Word Guru...)

Hello :-))) Kat - thank you for blogging :-) - you are ALSO taking great pictures - I am going to have to do a socks pull up!!! Marie - you know what they say about great minds - all the good stuff that is!!!  Sewing asemics seemed such a natural progressions - the the larger glyphs esp - I enjoyed doing it.  Just ALWAYS trying to tie things together - one of my ANNOYING traits :-) You two have  a wonderful weekend x

This is great! Damn, I think I got scooped. I just finished a piece yesterday, and I was convinced that it would be the first ever asemic stitches :-))) and it was for Cheryl. She is always ahead of us :-))
