Mail Art IN - USA, Amy Irwen

BIG envelop! Of course from the USA. 
Nice stamps of penguins. 
Are there penguins in the States? 
Except from the zoo? 
Why should a stamp refer to something in one's country? 

Wow, Amy has put a lot of work in this piece of Mail Art. 
Collage on a cd with painting and stamping actions. 
The piece of paper lace is gorgeous. 
I might use it in a piece of Mail Art myself.
Thank you, Amy

Mail Art IN - Germany, Willemien Visser

Collage in very-familiar-looking-see-through-envelop.
Dutch stamps on Mail Art from Germany? 
"Uit de kunst" means something like "Cool Art-ish"?
The -ish can apply to both Cool and Art, I guess.
Silly me addressed the see-through envelop wrong. But it reached Willemien anyway! 
As often, a collage has more meaning than it seems at first sight. 
Even the stamp is art. 
And some good news every Mail Artist who spends a fortune on stamps
(Willemien in this case):
the stamp wasn't cancelled.
Will return it to the sender ;)
This see-through envelop really does a lot of travelling. 

Thank you, Willemien

Manic Mandala (satellites included)

Yes, Yes!
Finished it. 
This one took years because after finishing the mandala
and the frame with sudoki-blocks,
I just couldn't think of a suiting fill-up background. 
Then suddenly I had a kind of eureka moment.
Feel quiet content with the blue-gold-pink. 

This one is for an exhibition I am organizing with
two very nice collegues in Amsterdam: AmbtArt2015. 
Next tuesday will be the opening!

Mail Art IN - France, Artist in Seine

Looks like the Artist in Seine is doing (or was doing)
a Grand Tour de l'Europe. 

The Artist in Seine aka Dean met Manneken Pis in Brussels.
Eight of them!

Another mobile piece of Mail Art.
It was made on the bus from Brussels to Paris. 

Thank you, Dean

Mail Art IN - Denmark, Rebekka Koefoed

First Mail Art received from Rebekka Koefoed, Denmark. 
Kjempe fint! 

 Some Mail Artists are proud to send their piece of Mail Art without any cover or envelop.
That is cool, especially when the Mail Art has an odd shape. 
But... receiving a package that needs a lot of unpacking always makes me very happy. 
It's the suspence, I guess. 
"Handle with care" it reads more than once. 
I will. Definitely! 
Grand piece. 

Thank you, Rebekka Koefoed
