RECEIVED:Mail-Art Vispo Collage from Eduardo Cardoso (Sines, Portugal)

Mail-art by IUOMA member Eduardo Cardoso (Sines, Portugal)

 

May 28, 2011 - The first mail-art I saw from Eduardo Cardoso immediately impressed me as being excellent visual poetry. Clearly he works in other areas as well  showing great talent and skill, not the least of which is concept art. Mail-artists are synthesizing many forms and concepts these days. This recent piece I received from Eduardo seems to be a beautifully composed collage with an emphasis on textual elements. He has pioneered Minimal Mail-art, and I can see that quality present too. All in all, it's a stand-out piece for my growing "Eduardo File." His envelopes are keepers too:


 

And the reverse:

 

 

Any mail-art received from Eduardo is a pleasant surprise. I was always look forward to wht he will do next - a true innovator indeed. Eduardo Cardoso has a spectacularly original and popular blog that is well worth frequent visits:

Many thanks Eduardo!

the figure looks distressed in all that text, as if he's holding out his hand for someone to grab and get him out of there
