The  collection of 5”x7” mixed media paintings is a tribute to the very intriguing world of MailArt.  Most MailArt that the artist C. Lou creates uses the medium of collage.  These mixed media paintings were created from different photography that C. Lou, has taken mainly during the first half of 2006.  Being trained in amateur photography over 10 years ago, the artist has once again picked up the camera and begun snapping photos of instant memories.  The majority of the photos used for the MailArt Series were from visiting a place the artist at one point called home.  Thus, there is a nostalgic feeling imposed from most of these small paintings due to the use of the black & white film.

 

So “What is MailArt?” you may ask…

 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia "MailArt is art which uses the postal system as a medium."  It is also one way for artists all over the world to exchange or send out their artwork without being juried.  Although there are some call to artists for mailart that only so many of the entries will be selected for a bricks and mortar show, most mailart projects include all who send in postcards.  MailArt can be created by using almost any medium as long as it can have a postage stamp affixed to it and it is mailed through the postal system.
