“I’m inclined to doubt there is a formula for creating a successful postcard… that sort of thing just happens”. Another statement from Richard Canard. What else to do then say he is right. That way the observer should judge what kind of card this is…… I made a ‘fan of Richard C.’ group on IUOMA at NING, where also others publish the card they receive from Richard C. Have a.. Read More
Made these two small drawings while testing indian ink on light green paper. Also used permanent white ink to add the details. Like the result and might do more drawings with different colors of ink.
Today I have been working on some more asemic works. This time on green paper with Indian ink and on top of that white permanent ink. So that brings soms structures and gives a permanent structure. I made several works also because I might be experimenting with new layers on ut as well When I work with ink I always use permanent ink. I know that it creates structures as.. Read More
To keep the flow going I send Ryosuke Cohen an enveloppe every two weeks. That way the Brain Cells as a reply do come in. I am currious if he reaches the 1000th issue. That is only a few years away, but a year in mail-art is a costly one with the current postal rates. On the envelope I use an artistamp that Mars Tokyo sent me. They were for.. Read More
Sample of mail-art I sent out. This envelope I sent in 1992 to Anna Boschi in Italy. In the end 90-ies I asked mail-artists to sca my envelopes and send the images back to me. That resulted in images like these.
A small selection of stampsheets from the TAM-Rubberstamp Archive. Just click on a single one and get a detailed view of the sheet. These ones were actually sent to the Stendhal Gallery in New York and exhibited there in April 2010. I was there for the opening and a few days later even gave a lecture there.
The TAM was HERE project This project was done in the 80-ies. I documented it on: http://tamwashere.blogspot.nl/ so you can have a good overview of the project. It was a typical Add & return project, where the result was exhibited in the Milkyway (Melkweg) Gallery in Amsterdam in 1985. Also I brought the collection to Ponte Nossa in Northern Italy, where I met Emilio Morandi and his family and exhibited.. Read More
On the old www.iuoma.org website I also documented some of my art. Always with low resolution, and not that good to look at. I am now placing the images in better resolution. Just click on them and see them full size. All made with acrylic paint on canvas. Size 60×40 and larger. These were exhibited too.
Some Cards I made in 2015. One set I keep in the TAM-Archive, but also lots of variations were sent into the network. Click on the individual image to see it larger.
When you wonder where the old IUOMA website went, it is still online. The link to that place is the same: http://www.iuoma.org/index.html and I even placed a link to that website in this blog. I will place more links to oplaces that are interesting for you, so from this BLOG you will eventually find a lot of things that I placed online.
