Halloween Card by Thomas Brown (Baltimore, Maryland, USA)

Brown - 12.11.2015 - 1

Mail art by IUOMA member Thomas Brown (Baltimore, Maryland, USA)

December 13, 2015 - I am thrilled to receive mail from Thomas Brown. A once faithful Baltimore correspondent seemed to have gone M.I.A. Then this card arrived. I do admit to being perplexed by the image. This is not the usual Brownian pithy blend of pop comedy and conceptualism. In fact, I thought at first it was another puzzle piece from Jude Weirmeir in California. The kind message on the other side from Thomas Brown explains things partially:

Brown - 12.11.2015 - 2

So we have a Halloween 2016 card from Thomas Brown! This is a brilliant move, given sharing mail received can be a slow process for me. I am ahead of the game too. The occasion of Halloween explains the orange and black; however, I cannot discern what the image represents.

All the same, deepest thanks to Thomas Brown!

Thanks for blogging. History: This was a larger sheet of cardboard cut into four postcard sized pieces for mailing, made approximately circa two years ago. I guess the lines only mean whatever they might mean on the level of non-verbal visuo-spatial intelligence. On tumblr, I have been following the artist Sean Sullivan ( http://seansullivanart.tumblr.com/ ), who at the time was working and maybe still works for a pigment stick company in New York called R & F Handmade Paints, Inc, so I thought I'd buy a stick and see how it went. Well, it took a long time to dry, but that is to be expected since it's oil based. Anyways...quality product but not practical for my purposes. I think I sent one of these to Katerina Nikoltsou maybe last year.
