MinXus Mail Bag: Claudia McGill (Wyncote, Pennsylvania, USA)

Mail-art by Claudia McGill (Wyncote, Pennsylvania, USA)

We are thrilled to be adding this gorgeous collage by Claudia McGill to the MinXus USA Archives. We have had this piece displayed on an Overlook Hotel table and have been admiring it for a long time, but apparently it was never officially documented. This is a gorgeous example of Claudia’s collage work that uses images of household items and furniture.  The abstract background, we believe, is particularly stunning.

Most of the work we receive from Claudia McGill is done on an oversize postcard format, at least twice the size of a regular postcard. She seems to be very good at assessing scale to give the work a maximum powerful impact.

As ever, thank you Miss Claudia!

    I want to say thanks for posting my work here and also at IUOMA. Wow! And I really appreciate your commentary. I make all this stuff and then just fling it out into the world, and hope it is appealing to someone. So hearing what you and others say means a lot to me.

    I’ll put in a word for junk mail. Without those ad cards, I’d never have figured out this type of work. Something about working with the everyday elements on the ad cards really is interesting to me.

    By coincidence, I sent something your way I think yesterday. You’ll know it by the envelope.

    Thanks again.
