all prints are editions of 1

Snail Mail Security is an ongoing series of prints of paper collage. Each print is an edition of one. The paper comes from the interior of found business envelopes that have come through the mail and have been hand-opened. Mail that carries sensitive and important information is sent in special envelopes that have Security Features.

Michael Weinstein called the series “beguiling, involving and edgy in a visual sense (rough, straight, jagged and smooth) and psychologically (abrupt confrontations of dynamic shapes blocking each other in tension-filled force fields)” (New City).

Friends and supporters have started sending me their used business envelopes. You can too.
