'Fear in Fukushima' - from Guido Vermeulen Belgium.

Frightened Bird.  This is the first mail art correspondence  I have received from Guido – and the first from Belgium.  He describes his expressive painting on the envelope as his “4th painting  on the haunting situation of Fukushima".  

I used ‘expressive’ to denote Guido’s use of exaggeration and distortion because I am reminded of van Gogh who used line and color to express “man’s terrible passions”.  Our ever all consuming search for energy.  It’s a dangerous passion.  Haunting. Absolutely. Thank you Guido.  Guido has a project on IUOMA – The Book of Ann – the 12 FRIOUR project.  His site for more information http://thebookofAnn.blogspot.com

Thanks Guido – its great to be trading.
