MinXus Mail Bag: File Under “Trashpo” by Erica Durante (Waldwick, New Jersey, USA)

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

It’s a special treat at that Mink Ranch when we reach into the mail bag and find a beautiful piece of mail-art from Erica Durante in New Jersey.  We admire her choice of colours, the textures and designs she creates and her use of organic form. This missive is a special treat, as she has sent us a Trashpo exploration using found material. (We note some asemics as well.) We think the file card is an ingenious touch. Erica taps perfectly into the Trashpo aesthetic (or anti-art) while maintaining her own unique style.

Erica Durante is a member of DKult New Jersey (DKULTJER). With the recent explosion of Trashpo in the UK, we were thinking just yesterday about DKULTJER and wondering about the state of USA Trashpo in general. Her lovely piece affirms for us that when it comes to Trashpo, our fine nation is still the world leader.

Deepest thanks, Erica!
