RECEIVED: Asemic Writing Mail-Art from Amazon59 (Roeland Park, Kansas, USA)

 

Mail-art by IUOMA member Amazon59 (Roeland Park, Kansas, USA)

 

March 20, 2011 - The new Asemic Writing for Mail-Artists group that Cheryl Penn and I are hosting at the IUOMA is already providing a forum to see asemic work by many different artists and share ideas. I received this piece from Amazon59 who is an active member of the group. I think it's a beautiful piece of asemic work. I am thrilled to have received it through the mail so I have a signed copy. The group does emphasize the mail-art component, so I hope it will spark exchanges of asemic work. Here is the reverse side:


Amazon59 has commented that long before she learned about the concept of asemic writing she was creating her own language and symbols. This seems to be the case for many mail-artists who use asemic writing in their work. In the case of Karen Champlin (Chicago, USA), for instance, her current asemic work can be traced to shapes and symbols she created as a child. It's great to see more asemic work moving through the network. Many, many thanks Amazon59! She has an interesting blog:

I didn't say much about the reverse side. It's an excellent example of utilizing all the space available and doing it artistically. I like the bit of verse she added as well as the script. The piece has total unity - just outstanding, IMHO.

The reverse is a prime example of how the stamps go hand in hand with the artwork and make it even better.
