MinXus Mail Bag: Cryptic Warhol by Stan Askew (Pasadena, California, USA)

Stan - 2.9.2015 - 1

Mail art by Stan Askew (Pasadena, California, USA)

We are thrilled to share new work recently received from our SoCal fave artist Stan Askew. A main attraction is this gorgeous Andy Warhol collage on sturdy cardboard that showcases a great iteration of Stan Askew’s cryptic symbol system. “Cryptic” definitely describes this particular mailing, as we find an even higher-than-usual dose of the indeterminate. Here is the reverse side of the Warhol collage:

Next is a retro work. Given the blank card that accompanies it, we can only assume Stan Askew is inviting us to get creative and make some art ourselves. With his art arriving upon our doorstep, we find it easier to gaze and appreciate:

Also included is some exhibition information. We are not sure if we have more collage material here or some excellent work to ponder (or both). Regardless of how it is interpreted, Stan Askew has an amazing eye for images.

Every aspect of a Stan Askew mailing is top notch:

Many thanks, as ever, to Stan Askew!
