Holes and anti-holes - from Katerina Nikoltsou

Sandpo comes in many many shades of Po, and I am so lucky to always get the latest trend from Katerina. This one is elegantly interlaced with holes and anti-holes.

MA from Russell Manning

I could not be a bigger fan of Russell's work.  I treasure the pieces I have received from him over the years.  I don't think there is any work, save Bifidus', that is more polar opposite to mine and it fascinates me.

'Fear in Fukushima' - from Guido Vermeulen Belgium.

Frightened Bird.  This is the first mail art correspondence  I have received from Guido – and the first from Belgium.  He describes his expressive painting on the envelope as his “4th painting  on the haunting situation of Fukushima".  

I used ‘expressive’ to denote Guido’s use of exaggeration and distortion because I am reminded of van Gogh who used…
