Mail-art by IUOMA member Moan Lisa (Des Moines, Iowa, USA)
June 30, 2014 - I make no claim to have the ability to chronicle the range or evolution of Moan Lisa’s diverse and voluminous correspondence. In this post, I share the contents of two envelopes received recently. The piece above echoes Moan’s Fake Andy Warhol call as well as Femailart. This is a letter-size work, and here are two panels from the reverse side:
Another envelope contained some great work in stripped-down black & white with an emphasis on stamp composition:
Here we find Moan Lisa’s distinctive Fluxus stamp, the Femailart logo/stamp, the Moan-Ray Johnson bunny and a reference to the divorce period which overlapped with the pizza box phase. I am pleased to report that, to the best of my knowledge, things are going much better these days for Moan in Iowa.
This FAB page includes some very expressive asemic writing.
My documentation of work by mail-art phenom Moan Lisa is, of course, ongoing. Deepest thanks to Moan Lisa for always including us in mailings!
