Vizma Bruns vs The Demon Vulcanizer

We missed Halloween this year so it was great when Vizma sent me this belated Halloween Boekie sans boner jokes. Of course, we were somewhat disappointed by the lack of boner jokes and she has since promised to include them under a separate cover.

Susan McAllisters Hollowed Subject

The versatile Susan McAllister seen here in droll collage mode. Susan's work reminds me a bit of Svenja Wahl's stuff...They wield a taut scalpel.

THE DECONSTRUCTIONISTS

Cheryl Penn sent some massacred paintings with helps. Dense as I am I did not realize until I received this current offering that Cheryl's technique involves 1) Making the Painting 2) Photograph It (and possibly write the narrative story) 3) Cutting it up and sending out the pieces of the painting along with the photograph of the piece from which it…
