Mail art by IUOMA member Rebecca Guyver (Suffolk, UK)
November 22, 2016 - I am very pleased to be able to add two new works by Rebecca Guyver to the greatest show on earth. Rebecca has made an historic mark upon Trashpo through plasticizing and cellophane wraps. She has developed processes in her Trashpo explorations, unknown to me, that produce remarkable textures and visual effects. Rebecca Guyver has made some significant contributions through fiber as well. The results, as you see here, are so remarkable that I do not trust myself to identify the materials. I think this is an amazing, commemorative piece. First, you see the wrapped version.
Now the piece unwrapped:
The colour is just extraordinary. As for the second piece (below): I have written at some length about Rebecca Guyver’s Post-MinXus (PoMX) work, and I am thrilled to have another example:
According to the Trashpo Lexicon (yes, there really is one!), Trashpo and MinXus can only be truly understood in terms of their relationship to each other. So a MinXus-derived work is entirely appropriate in the Karnival of Trash. Always attentive to language, Rebecca Guyver includes some excellent cryptics: “Gallows Hill” and “Turner House Trashpo.” Wonderful!
Sunny, MinXus colours! Thanks as ever to Miss Becca!
