5th set of cards for co-parisian artists
These are the 5th set of postcards for my co-artists in the Paris Correspondence school. I have used a selection of original cards sourced from Felixstowe, Paris, Blackpool and Ipswich.
The Blackpool and Paris postcards where a gift from a friend of mine, Annabel D, who has traveled a lot more than me this year. When ever a friend goes away I ask them to bring me some postcards back for me to work with. I really like the idea of involving others in my work, my sister does a lot of work for me, working within the rules I set her. The removal of the hand of the artist is something that has always interested me.
The cards of Felixstowe required a day trip to the tourist office, a walk on the promenade and an ice-cream.
The Ipswich cards only required a trip to the tourist office and a cup of coffee.
As the project has developed I have really enjoyed the conversations and discussions that have developed between us.
