Origami Theme by Karalie Vest (Molalla, Oregon, USA)

Mail art by IUOMA member Karalie Vest (Molalla, Oregon, USA)

 March 27, 2017 - After the long ride of the Karnival of Trash there is a certain homecoming feel to resuming "normal" posting. Familiarity sometimes comes as a comfort. The end of a long journey leaves us to reflect: What has been gained and lost?

But the point – before I digress hopelessly – is the resumption with this lovely card from a newcomer (to me): Karalie Vest of Oregon. Are these stamps? And we have some Holism play. From a larger perspective, origami appears in mail art often; and it is an excellent match. Like mail art, origami is egalitarian yet can rise to a complex artform. There is a suggestion of minimalism, a joy in simplicity. Karalie Vest manages to integrate origami and mail art perfectly, I think.

Deepest thanks to Karalie Vest!

Lovely work, Karalie.

There is a big affinity between mail art and origami. This was a much-discussed topic here on the IUOMA platform at one point. I only regret I didn't go back and find some of the points. But this is also much very about enjoying the simplicity of the art too. So we'll leave as is. Thx again

Glad it made it, and you appreciate the simplicity. Sometimes I feel I need to do more simple projects like this one. It's like pausing and taking a breath in the middle of the chaos.  Cheers!
