Featured artwork

neRRaDa's "Air Mail".

neRRaDa on collage "Air Mail": The work is a collage that attempts to embody the international spirit and principles of mail art. Drawing together discrete references such as an English King, a Spanish bullfight, Japanese script and New York graffiti art, the found images are juxtaposed to simultaneously suggest and negate meaning. The use of birds and airmail stamps are postal system puns.
