Mail art by IUOMA member Linda Rogers (Toronto, Canada)
April 10, 2019 - This colorful and densely layered card marks the first appearance of Linda Rogers in the Asemic Front project. She is a member of the asemic writing group here at IUOMA and also a participant in the mail art network. Thus, this piece is a happy meeting of correspondence art and asemic writing-visual poetry.
Linda Rogers uses a minimal space (the postcard format) for maximum benefit. I can locate calligraphy, deconstructive asemics and invented symbols. The work has extraordinary depth. The curves and cross patterns suggest larger asemic structures and the ever-elusive "asemic syntax."
Many thanks to Linda Rogers for this wonderful contribution to Asemic Front 2. I'll be looking for more!
