Mail-art by IUOMA member Matthew Stolte (Madison, Wisconsin, USA)

(September 25, 2014) - In recent weeks, Wisconsin visual poet Matthew Stolte has sent me a series of postcard-size pieces. Above is a colorful composition by Matt that clearly indicates Trashpo is a form of visual poetry. Here is the reverse side:

Three more pieces are collaborations between Matthew Stolte and me. Matthew used cut-ups of concrete poetry I mailed him:

These are the first collabs ever done between Stolte and Sloan:

The Trashpo theme remains consistent across all these pieces:

What I notice about collabs is how they bring out the strengths in each other.
Great to see!
