Mail-art by IUOMA member Annette Kesterson (San Francisco, California, USA)
September 24, 2014 - I deeply appreciate this compelling and somewhat cryptic postcard-size work sent by new mail-art friend Annette Kesterson in San Francisco. My favorite part, the part that made my day, is difficult to see via a scan:
It is the glitter that gives this piece added sparkle! While I do not use it myself, I am an advocate for more glitter in mail-art, especially in light of this lovely piece by Annette Kesterson! She has made some real magic here, I think. Yet beneath the glitter there is the artistic gold of images, juxtapositions, colors and text fragments (among other elements). A wonderful introduction to a new mail-art friend! Thanks again, Annette.
