Smiles & Smirks

Art with a measure of humour is required by Walmarth Corporation for its chain of supermarkets, located in the Queendom of Retailia and in Cascadia Artpost. Through this collaboration Cascadia Artpost and Mail Art Martha are continuing to give impulse to Trashpo, the artistic vision of Diane Keys.

‘Walmarth Corporation is an entertaining and witty parody of corporate, consumer culture. Cascadia Artpost’s painstaking realization of Mail Art Martha’s ideas through detailed, special effects style models makes Walmarth Corporation one of the crowning achievements of Trashpo in the half-decade that it has been producing a large quantity of art.’

In addition to Trashpo the Corporation has now expanded to include political satire, parody, comics, caricature and witty playfulness.
Your contribution is needed to fill the shelves.

No picture, but I had to smile when I found a channel on YouTube devoted to eighteenth century recipes had been deluged with politically charged complaints about a dessert recipe. I investigated and found it was for orange fool.

The following three examples of the work of Nancy Bell Scott are a rather superior style of Trashpo. And  here is how she works , a whimsy and amusing  if  instructive account.Thank you Nancy.
