Making mailart every day since December 1st, 2010!
Mailart 365 has moved
Thanks for visiting Mailart 365. This site is an archive of mailart produced by artists doing mailart 365 from December 2010 to August 2016. As of July 2016, we moved to a new and more modern site at www.mailart365.com. Come on over and check us out there
Spent the gap after dinner thinking about Bonnard. Which visual artist should I 'homage'? How do I merge poetry, the visual and ideas without being old fashioned. I always need to go through every step.
One the themes that emerging as I make my way through my 365 is the way i like to go sideways with words. I started with the background and wondered who those legs could belong to. Cakewalk came into my head and then I decided those legs weren't walking. No one in my family 'got it' without explanation so thought I'd be a bit more explicit on the other side. How explicit should we be?
I think I've made this in the hope that I actually do become supercharged. However after a few late nights sorting out the Positively Postal wesbite and going out last night I am feeling anything but supercharged!
Components of this piece came from interesting sources as follows:
"I" on yellow tape and the 2099 labels came from a stamp album I'm now selling on eBay - I think the labels etc were from when it was in a previous auction.
Y Beibel Cymraeg (The Welsh Bible) is from a stamp presentation pack which somebody had used as a stiffener to send me something.
The words, (This week, am supercharged), the shark type creature (actually a cycle helmet!) and the patterns came from usual Saturday magazine - I'm now even less supercharged having gone through that list! :)
