Top: Sticks & Stones - Middle: Guarded - Bottom: Fragile
My main goal with the mailart project was to try and use proofs, from my original prints, in different configurations; to see what could be achieved by cutting, pasting, adding collage materials from magazines and found objects and simply rearranging images.
There are mini series emerging as the work progresses. These 3 cards were created from a piece entitled "Vulnerability" which was based on the old rhyme, "sticks & stones may break my bones ...". The new pieces seem to have a darker feel to them than the original print.
