May 15, 2011 - A good friend to many of us in the network, Test Tower has released this incredible large post-card size piece that is part of his ongoing Fluxus Affair Project.
This particular piece uses a wedding, or at least an engagement?, of the Fluxus Affair and the IUOMA - a match made in heaven, of course. Test Tower's style is immediately recognizable. I marvel at his skill - artistic and technical - in making this mail-art. He always manages to achieve a seamless unity often incorporating retro, super-realism, and the surreal. I think it all comes together to create something NEW. The reverse side is equally wonderful:
How does he achieve these amazing popping colors? I actually had to tone them down a bit in the scans. TT has had a challenging winter. I hope springtime is better for him. We must keep exchanging mail-art! Test Tower maintains a truly outstanding blog. Not only does he get and post interesting work from all over the world, he writes some insightful commentary. The Fluxus Affair is there too:
Best wishes TT. As you say: "See you in the mail."
