June has been a busy month getting ready for two big shows this fall as well as sending out mail art including pieces for a number of upcoming mail art shows. The first pink mail art already arrived and along with that, these are a few of the other highlights from June:
- Torma Cauli’s latest piece is rather “mappish” and feels like a response to the Other Dimensions Landscape series I have been sending out.
- MIM sent an altered postcard of the Bay Bridge with some manicure action going on.
- Jennie Hinchcliff wants me to “Question Everything.” She knows me well (really, she does).
- Meral Agar sent a print from her Ruins series and a bookmark-shaped piece. Am I allowed to use it as a bookmark?
- R.F. Côté latest piece included a rubber stamp of the screaming trumpet. If I were going to stamp my mail with a politician, I’d prefer Hunky Justin myself.
- Heather Ferguson is creating mail art celebrating 25 years of Griffin and Sabine.
- Kerosene is exploring flocked mail art. It’s like a piece of a 1970’s dining room.
- From Denmark comes Marina Salmaso’s altered postcard in a re-purposed coffee bag. That made for some pleasant smelling mail art indeed.
- William Mellott is collaging his neighborhood map. Are the streets of Taiwan paved with teal colored foil? That would be marvelous.
- And finally, a rather amazing handmade, fold out book arrived from E.Coles in England. It is currently displayed on one of my white shelves (see below). Yes, I color-coordinate my books.
Thanks for all the great mail and I look forward to seeing a summer of pink in the PO Box.
