Since moving to Grass Valley last May, I’ve been sending address updates to mail artists I’ve known through the years, and to a few new members at the International Union of Mail Artists. I’ve gotten quite a few pieces of mail art in return. So, I thought I’d share some of them here. ￼
It’s taking much longer than I hoped, but I have a studio space in the new garage at last. I’ve been working on a “big” concept piece, a series of linocut prints, that should be ready to go out in the mail in a couple of weeks. Linocut prints are dangerous things to make, it turns out. You have to carve the image into a block of linoleum with hand held tools, tool in one hand, linoleum block in the other. Slip up and you end up jabbing your hand.
I rarely escape time in the studio uninjured these days, but I am getting better.
I completed a batch of postcards and mini-books that are ready to go out in the mail. If you’d like to receive some mail art of your own, leave your snail mail address in a comment or send it to me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put “Mail Art Request” in the subject line.
