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.

My homage to Queenie will not dwell on her many good qualities, her sense of duty, her restraint on expressing her political ideas, her compassion.

All of which has been obvious during her long reign. I want to celebrate her amazing sense of  humour and her playfulness. So here are two examples

Our Postal workers are revolting against measures which will give them a meagre increase in salary in exchange for worse working conditions. Kevin our lovely postperson has told me that it will not affect my outgoing post. That is the good news, but the deliveries will be affected. So I will be like Charlie Brown!

By the way, the Queen is a jolly good fellow with a great sense of humour.

I wish she were really running the country instead of that bunch of nincompoops!
