Mail art by IUOMA member Nadine Wendell-Mojica (Burbank, California, USA)
January 10, 2014 - I am eager to share a fresh installment of the very popular Hollywood mail art report from on-the-scene MinXus-LynXus correspondent, Nadine Wendell-Mojica. The Las Vegas pendant (above) with the wonderful, faded letters at the top works for me splendidly as a Trashemic object poem. Nadine’s report contains a wealth of just marv material. The opulence and abundance is connected to the (now fading) holiday season that, in this case, still retains a rough-around-the-edges sparkle:
IUOMA friends will note that in the upper-right portion of the scan (above) Nadine perceptively included some dialogue by Joe Friday (Jack Webb) from Dragnet. I have been making allusions to the LA-centered show for some time when writing about Nadine’s report.
This scan (above) mostly displays reverse sides. I do appreciate the way Nadine always includes some of her trademark caricatures when filing her report.
I hold the position that Trashpo is, or can be in the hands of a master, a form of social realism. Nadine Wendell-Mojica could well be writing a great Hollywood Trashpo epic.
Thus we have another edition of the MinXus Hollywood report filed, shared and recorded for posterity. Many thanks, Nadine – scouring the gritty streets of Hollywood so that we might know the truth.
