Information about the Love mail art project was sent to me by Aimee (see mail from her here and here). I have been working on a piece of artmail to send to Romania as well as a few artist correspondents.
Pile of postcards:
All they need now are stamps and a mail box!
ATCs or Artist Trading Cards are another fun way to get other artists tiny works. The gallery requests that the works be sent in a Trading Card sleeve/ 9 card sheet. I still need to pick one of these up, but my cards are ready otherwise.

and a few close ups:
Like my other recent work, these are made using reclaimed polyethylene. I got a slew of it from someone on freecycle back in Delaware. It had a lot of wonderful marks left from plant roots and mud from it’s previous use. The piece I used for this set of works though, had also been used while I was cleaning one of my screens after printing. The red marks are the screen filler that was washed out of the screen and dried onto the polyethylene. I love how many lives things can have and to think sending them out to others gives them yet another life is really quite exciting.
