FAB (!) Collage by Amy Irwen (Rosemount, Minnesota, USA)

Mail art by IUOMA member Amy Irwen (Rosemount, Minnesota, USA)


August 4, 2019 - We are in a golden age of add & pass, yet – clearly – collage remains the core genre in mail art. A casual gloss of the IUOMA-Ning gallery reveals networkers are producing extraordinary collages of astonishing variety and in large quantities.

Amy Irwen sent this FAB work that captures the spirit of contemporary network collage. The piece is large and substantial yet still very much mail art. The color and texture are astonishing, and I am thrilled to have the hard copy to admire, preserve in the M-L archives and to document.

Deepest thanks to Amy Irwen for this special work!
