Today we are pleased to share with Tenderfoots a triple mail-art feature. Richard Canard and Annette Kesterson have appeared recently upon our humble blog, and we add these two new works as a sort of encore in appreciation of the generosity they show as well as talent.

Mail-art by Annette Kesterson (San Francisco, California, USA)

We adore this postcard Annette sent us from sunny California because it represents, for us anyway, a kind of asemic minimalism using the concept of configuration. The key comes from comparing the two sides:

Thoughtful, funny and aesthetically pleasing – this work has it all!

Maria Marisot - 11.11.2014 - 1

Mail-art by Maria Marisot (Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA)

We are also thrilled to share a mysterious, minimalist piece received from the enigmatic Maria Marisot. Maria seems connected to the labyrinthine and protean concept of Moan Lisa, but she shows much evidence of being a real person as well. For instance, she has written a lot of excellent poetry that is very distinctive.

It’s very possible this work by Maria Marisot is meant to be an add and pass. We will likely use it for that purpose.

Thanks again to Richard Canard, Annette Kesterson and Maria Marisot.
