I put my braquesque 10 yr old painting in the school parents' night show and ..blaah! people would ask me: " but what does it MEAN??" oh. I didn't get the message across. So I started adding words. Mail art is the balance of reification and the restricted rhetoric of ordinary language (pictures 'n words). In music, words make opera happen; the same rule applies in the visual arts.
Hi Ian! I’m new to this whole mail art scene, and up ‘til now I wasn’t sure what artistamps were. Wow...very interesting and creative! Wish there was a button to “favorite” them all in one fell swoop! I’m going to “friend” you, if thst’s okay. And perhaps you may want to swap mail art with this chickie from Minnesota.
09.03.18 Dare Ms. Carolyn Cline (as if we were not on Mister Ian C. Dengler's back porch), ...yeah, me too. I have a hard time just keeping up with what seems to be a daily proliferation.... my response is usually scratching my head & then, having to goggle the so-called "philosopher-of-the-day".
