Mystery mail art
Lately a new fashion has been going around in mail art circles (emphasis on going around in circles). Established artists are abandoning and sometimes denouncing a persona they have cultivated for years. This causes identity confusion.
From the Mink Ranch perspective, we are also seeing a sharp rise in cases of mail art received where we cannot identify the sender. We share just such a case today, imploring Tenderfoots to give us a hand in identifying the artist. This piece even has initials. We still can’t put it together. At one time, playing cards were Mink Ranch symbols.
We are also proud to share a piece by Richard Canard. He offers some sage advice, and we appreciate the Trashpo aspect as well:
While the Richard Canard identity is currently stable and widely recognized, we know Richard has gone by other names in the past (Richard C, Richard Craven, etc.).
Many thanks to Richard Canard and today’s mystery mail artist.
