Roland's classy 'Mail Calls' are always a delicacy for the eyes and mind. His current one, "Venus von Arheilgen" looks to be no exception. What you are enjoying viewing in the above panel is a very high quality edition of printed Artistamps that were created from the postcards sent to Roland for his Venus project. These lovely Artistamps serve wonderfully as documentation for that event. I am sure glad to have this fine work for my collection.
This is the original image of the Venus that Roland has sent to Heebee Jeebeeland for my participation. Although the deadline for the showing has passed, these subsequent creations will be displayed here: Venus ProjectThe following are Roland's instructions and details for the project:
DIFFERENT SETS OF 9 PHOTOGRAPHS HAVE BEEN SENT OUT TO 14 ARTISTS FOR THEIR INDIVIDUAL MODIFICATIONS. AFTER IT THEY WILL SENT IT BACK TO ME. BOTH, THE PHOTO MOSAIC AS WELL AS THE MODIFICATION WILL BE SHOWN AT THE EXHIBITION. I WILL DOCUMENT IT HERE ON THIS BLOG (Venus von Arheilgen Project). IN THE END THERE WILL BE A PLANED ARTISTBOOK ABOUT THE PROJECT.
I was put into a terrific mood as I yanked this entertaining Mail Art packet from the smiling belly of my Post Box. It has been a while since we have exchanged some art and I can't wait to get back to it with this uniquely sophisticated artist. Halbritter's outgoing Mail Art. Thank you very much dear Roland. See you soon in the Post.
