Letter written and sent to Ryosuke Cohen. He has been making this many Brain Cells that in return I always send him some handmade works so he knows I appreciate his work. This time a larger envelope went to him. Below you can see the cover on which the address was hand painted:
In a few week I will see what he did use or did not use. Just wanted him to get a nice surprise too. The content has also some handpainted fluxus words in it, so he can read them when he gets the piece
Added a hardcopy Bitcoin to this paper and also some traditional values. Symbolic for the new ways for mail-art that old and new are now integrating and we don’t know which way things are heading. Will be funny to find out where this paper will travel too…… And what kind of traces are on it. I left a few of mine and now digitized it. The network will tell if it is still alive and kicking (or not).
I promissed Picasso Gaglione in USA some time ago to send him some prints of found rubberstamps. So this is the first start to keep that promis. As usual a decorated enveloppe and inside some small surprises for Picasso which I won’t spoil to much in this blog. Just one detail I will show here and that is a part of a few works I stamped for him:
For some graphics on Internet I developed a specific sequence:
- Make a drawing with Indian Ink on thick paper and let it dry
- Put some St. Petersburg Watercolours over the image and let it dry
- Make a digital photo of the result
- Guide it through a Roy Lichtenstein application to set the forms and tones like Roy would have done it.
The results are now on some Facebook groups as a banner, and to archive these works I have posted a few here as well.
Six new works I made the last weeks. Experiments with Indian ink, water and pen. Then composition added with watercolours and dated, signed and titled. Chaos and chance elements are added into these works. Something which I love to do and started when I discoverd art as a child. Somehow I like working like this and I see all kind of things in these works.
