Heebee Post #894 - RCBz - St. Clown, Minnesota - USA

 Roy sends in this fine "Rodchenko-Askew" postcard. An interesting "Mash-up" - Alexander Rodchenko black and white monochrome photography with the popular Mail Artist Stan Askew trademark Dice (or "Die", since it is only one).  I somehow get the feeling of some pathos from the subject - as if he is eternally photographing that little red numbered cube - like Sisyphus pushing that boulder up the mountain - forever. I think Askew fans (and he has a lot) should enjoy this immensely.
Roy's unique style is always cerebral with a penchant for seriousness meets funny. He has carved a niche in the Mail Art world for himself and I am glad to have a pretty good collection of his works. Thanks Roy - love this card. See you in the Mail my friend.
