This Exhibition features the results of an auto-mailing project that I began on 1 September, 2010, and involves me mailing myself a different, brightly-coloured 16.5 cm square Envelope every day for a year. On the outside of the Envelopes will be different themes, images, and configurations of stamps, pictures, posters, painting, and other images. Each Envelope will be a unique, mini example of what I am calling 'Envelope Art'.
The project allows me to explore the artistic and design potential of the Envelope. One Envelope is, well, just an Envelope, but in their tens, hundreds, and eventually all 365 of them, they will become -- when suitably arranged -- a work of Conceptual (Envelope and/or Stamp and/or Mail) Art.
Laid end-to-end, the envelopes would form a chain over 60 meters/65 yards long – bt hey will be arranged ion a series of special panels in sequential order, and in their entirety will forma brightly-coloured, Mail Art mosaic.
The Exhibition will run for 3 weeks from Tuesday 9 August, 2011 to Saturday 3 September. The opening reception will take place at 18.00 on Friday 12 August. Do come!
