The last weeks I have been working in these, and finaly the last additions were made.The small series is now ready. They are scanned and published, and some will go to strange corners of the world for sure. Click on a single work to see it full-size.
In 2017 I got these catalogs of Mail-Art project in the mail. Above a project done by the Stickerdude (Joel Cohen) in NY – USA, and below two catalogs that Uli Grohmann (Germany) did. Although a lot goes digital thee days, the hardcopies are still my favorites. You can go through the pages, and digitize them, but the booklet will survive the times for sure whuile the digital images go into the websiotes and social media and somehow are difficult to find after some time…..
When I work on drawings, I always work on several ones. THis gives you an overview of the ones I am currently working on.They will get ready one by one when I finish the small details. When ready, I normally scan them and sometimes publish them on a blog or on other placed. Then they are archives in portfolio’s to keep them dry and dark and safe for the future. Maybe an exhibition one of these days?
Robin C rozier did a project where he asked people from the network to share a memory of a specific day and return it to him. In return you would get the memory of someone else. I have tried to collect soms of the memories back, and have saved them in digital form (see above). Also I collect the originals, and have documented my collection on:
Some originals are in someone’s elses collection, and I only have a B&W xerox of it. The dates and memories are now scattered arround the globe. But it all fits together in a big large network that was active in the last decades when Robin Crozier was doing this project.
A large enveloppe arrived yesterday from Mr. Colori (Chaam, Netherlands). In is was a splendit catalog from the exhibition and project he did called : Van Bosch naar Bruegel, Bruegel after Bosch.
A full colour catalog with reprints of all the works sent in, and also a complete participant list. One of thos catalogs that remembers you from the past when these things were produced. Nowadays most mail-artists can’t find sponsors for such a very fine production. So I am very glad to have received this masterpiece. Will fit wonderful in the archive. And please don’t forget that the exhibition can still be visited in Den Bosch, Netherlands. Have a look at the website for details:
