Junk Mail Art 4 (plus a junk mail poem)

junk mail mask #6s

This started out more mask-like, but somehow it evolved into…well I’m not quite sure what.  Let’s call it a junk mail totem.

And with further inspiration from Claudia McGill, I’ve done a junk mail poem on a junk mail collage.  She collects words cut from old books; I collect them from magazines.  Which accounts for why it sounds somewhat like an advertisement.

junk mail poem #1s

Breathe:  is this the face
in your blood?  You don’t know?
Must-see when ‘breathless’!

You can see the rest of my junk mail art here.

    What a couple of super fun pieces! I’m especially drawn to the Picasso-meets-Dali-esque quality of the first.

    Reminds me of the Ood a little…(my secret weakness for sci-fi is out!).

    I like the colors and shapes in the first piece. Not sure I get what’s happening in the second poem – but I will mull over it and I did see the movie Breathless, lol!

      I’m so glad you like it. And thanks for the reblog!
      Definitely more. I’ve been cleaning and I just found a lot more phrases I had cut out–who knows when?–to choose from.
      And thanks for the continuing inspiration!
