Sending a small piece of art to one another through the mail was how Laura and Tina’s collaborative work started. A small gesture that bloomed into a full, collaborative relationship.
Mail Art has history in all of our lives. Think of the postcard and how anywhere you go on a trip there is always a postcard you can purchase, write a quick note, then send off to a loved one. Isn’t it a joy to receive this bit of mail in your mailbox instead of bills?
Look for the “Working Table” posts where Laura and Tina discuss this process of the hand-crafted postcard. For these two artists, this practice is just plain fun. It is a time to play with a new material, experiment with a technique, and communicate with one another in a tactile way. It is a complement to this digital version of their collaboration.
Laura and Tina hope the postal carrier and anyone else handling the artwork will engage too.
