MinXus Mail Bag: Trunk-ated text-ures from Erica Durante (Waldwick, New Jersey, USA)

Mail-art by Erica Durante (Waldwick, New Jersey, USA)

Erica Durante, our MinXus-Lynxus correspondent in New Jersey, sent us this beautiful piece during the holiday season. A classic, postcard-size mail-art piece, we are enthralled by the subtle colors and layering, which – upon contemplation – reveal sub-structures of shapes and letters. The chief method of composition here is stamping. We believe this mail-art should not be viewed for quick visual consumption. Instead, we enjoy returning to it again and again, each time finding new depth and possibilities. We bask in the warmth and harmony!
