Mail Art triptych by De Villo Sloan (NY, USA) for Karen Champlin (Illinois, USA) (circa 2013). Part of a call by Bifidus Jones (Minnesota, USA)
March 22, 2019 - In yesterday’s blog I mentioned the creation of mail art triptychs a few years back & promised to find some examples in the labyrinthine MinXus-Lynxus Archives. Ever true to my dear IUOMA friends, here are some examples from this interesting phase. The artists tend to be folks still active in the current network.
The triptychs were straight-forward three panel affairs (such as the one above) or tri-panel structures associated with the popular surge in artist’s books that was also taking place at that time. These include books with a total of six panels that can stand upright or even cards (ATCs) in sets of three. Participants were generally aware that other network artists were experimenting with the form & tried it themselves.
