MinXus Mail Bag: A Cautionary Collage by Tiffany Bahan (Urbana, Ohio, USA)

Mail-art by Tiffany Bahan (Urbana, Ohio, USA)

A nod, a big Mink Ranch “Howdy” and a secret MinXus handshake go out to Tiffany Bahan in Ohio for sending us this beautiful, postcard-size collage and for her first appearance upon our humble blog. She certainly brightens the beginning of what was a bleak, grey December day.

Behind this initial splash of brightness and joy, we detect some solid formalist construction giving energy and focus to the emotion as well as a FAB and skillful use of colour. Tiffany Bahan would not be the first to recognize and employ yellow caution tape for artistic purposes. Esteemed visual poet Geof Huth, for just one example, has done some interesting work with this material. In combination with comic book/cartoon exclamations, Tiffany Bahan has managed to create what we believe borders upon being an interesting visual poem. The language-centered nature of the collage is much appreciated.

Deepest thanks to Tiffany Bahan for sending us this lovely work. We look forward to more exchanges in the future.
