Nancy Bell Scott commented on Ficus strangulensis's group tsundoku
"Oh, Bradford's entropy almost got lost below! I had to google to remind myself of its non-physics meaning: "lack of order or predictability; gradual decline into disorder." It IS a great artist. Often the heart of art, in my book."
Monday
Nancy Bell Scott commented on Ficus strangulensis's group tsundoku
"That's a wonderful way to describe it, Mike. I can't claim such carefulness, as a lot of experimenting goes on with painting, folding, tearing pages. Any part of the book still semi-intact when I find it tends to quickly fall off by itself…"
Monday
Nancy Bell Scott commented on De Villo Sloan's blog post In PetrolPetal's heart Richard Canard is always #1 (South Africa)
"Same here, it turns out. Under my address on piece from PetrolPetal is the address for Margreet (Beemsterboer) of Netherlands. The piece is getting wispy, but I'm removing my address and sending it on to Margreet. "

Nancy Bell Scott commented on De Villo Sloan's blog post In PetrolPetal's heart Richard Canard is always #1 (South Africa)
"It sounds like the blog format is now seen by the larger world as passe, like email? Everything, especially attention, is getting shorter and shorter. I just don't get the appeal of that path. Having never been on FB, I wonder why your blog and…"

Nancy Bell Scott commented on Ficus strangulensis's group tsundoku
"Richard, A Humument is incredible, yes, fascinating visually and I also try to "read" it. A multi-years project. Just a page or two takes me an hour. It's kind of like dessert, only better. Neil Gordon taught me the term Wabi-Sabi…"

"Great blog, DVS. It made me laugh out loud in the middle of this night of insomnia. Several times, in fact. Made it worthwhile to actually give up on sleep and get up!"

"That number 13 should be rescued, but as to being the 14th ... we'll see. Thanks, Jon. Maybe a major martini will help."

Nancy Bell Scott commented on DKULT's group All Things Trashpo
"Trashpo, "art made with discarded objects and bits and pieces found littering the environment," is the real thing, yes. I'm just a trashpo admirer and hanger-on, around the edges. I do pick up all that stuff and love it, can't…"

"On tearing books: After feeling like you, Martha, for many decades, I now find it almost easy, using only old books that are literally falling apart. If they're not readable and not salable, why not give them new life? Is how I see it now.…"

Nancy, do not worry about big gap in mailing, reality issues always get in the way of good intentions. Here also this year and the two precedent have been confusing and 2020 does not seem to be panning any better.

I am looking forward to your mail, Walmarth is having a sale in Spring and it would be an honour to have a Nancy Bell ScottTrashpo piece on show.

By the way I did put a comment for you in the  Dkult group but it seems to have disappeared. May be I forgot to save. It can happen.

I am having a good long break until January so Happy New  Year, see you the other side.

Thank you for friending; it made me insanely happy. And it must be so pleasant to receive envelopes addressed to Parrott Street!

Dear Nancy:

Thanks you for your response, and we look forward to your donation.  We are going to start an Art Association for our community and want to have kids classes this summer, so the sale of any type of art will help our cause.

Cheers,

Mary J. Grellner

Almost first blog since 2014 (except for Sharon Silverman 2019) -- thanks, IUOMA, for still being here

Posted on February 17, 2020 at 11:16pm 2 Comments

From top down. Left: Renee "Motherbrando"; Jan Hodgman. Middle: Heide Monster, and 2 from Petrolpetal. Right: Samantha Price, Rebecca Guyver, and David Stafford. Friends, I wish I could blog everything like in the old days, but being at least half-luddite (and getting worse, haha) prevents it, as well as having the slowest + most infuriating scanner…

Above and beyond "documentation"! This is a jaw-dropping gift. 

Sharon's project is here: http://iuoma-network.ning.com/events/50-mailart-books. She is working on what she calls a "small library" of mailart books, and she pairs each of the 10 pieces you send her with a work of her own.…

Carina's boekie enchants me. All about color + shape, it is simplicity backed by a sophisticated artistic mind. I tried to stop scanning, but here's what happened:…
