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:
Deepest thanks to Erica Durante!
