Rusty Mail

Northern Diggings and Gold Country, each 5.5” x 4.25”, mixed media on paper

Don’t ask me to explain it, but I find rust visually appealing.  Maybe it’s just the color or maybe it’s some sort of subconscious attraction to slow decay and the playing out of time.  There is something ghost-like about an object that is slowly rusting and decaying.  I photograph rust and those images find their way into my art.  The latest pieces of mail art incorporating rust have been sent off to Zona 598 in Montevideo and Atöly Arts-In in Istanbul for upcoming exhibits.
