Mail art by IUOMA member Erica Durante (Waldwick, New Jersey, USA)


May 1, 2018 - Erica Durante has released new colorful and beautifully composed mail art. I am thrilled to be the recipient of one of these pieces (above). In her kind note, she explains this work is an exploration of minimalism:

Erica Durante frequently uses aesthetic themes to help produce a series (or simply batches) of mail art pieces. This particular venture into minimalism – I contend – is producing great results! (Also note how the postal process has altered the work - a very special aspect of mail art.)

Minimalism has always been a latent factor in her work, and here it is brought to the forefront. The simple but wonderfully effective structure is outstanding. Of course, I point to asemic elements as well. The piece – I believe – also looks good from another perspective:

Thx AA, Erica is always doing such interesting things.

I have to confess there is some patronage involved because she still is in the difficult position of being President of DKULT New Jersey (DKULTJER) AND DKULT France (DKULTFRA) because Trashpo remains deeply unpopular in France.

So three cheers for Erica Durante as an artist and network diplomat. And 3 cheers for the great Allison Anne!
