Received from Kiera Pannell, Canada--The Holy Family

The colors and the patterns of this piece evoke a calm elegance, and the whole card is carefully covered in sections of tape. Amazing really. Thanks Kiera.

A pair of choppers from Erni Bär, Germany--Taste the Chaos

Although these people look harmless, you know that if Erni puts them on a post card, they're for real

I'm wondering how many members are in the Bad Taste Club? How does one join such a group? And what kind of food and drink is provided or is it a…

Received from Stan Askew, USA--Faces

Stan the Man has sent this fine piece of mail art. The owls are wonderful of course, but I also like the repetition of the stamps, the statue, and the face. Low key color makes this a dynamite work. Thanks… Continue

Received from De Villo Sloan, USA--Haptic Poem in Beige Finish

Nothing better than getting a Haptic poem in the mail. De Villo's poem gives me a chance to contemplate the ordinary out of context and elevate it to new frontier levels, yet the fact that it comes in a baggy gives it an artifact-like presence. It reminds me of…
