Mail art by Mick Boyle (Conneaut Lake, Pennsylvania, USA)

Mick Boyle has attained, if not exceeded, Legend of Trashpo status for his innovative art and service to DKult. So I am thrilled to be able to include his “Incomplete Gestures” package in the Karnival of Trash exhibition. The envelope alone is worth the price of admission. Some will no doubt note the Ray Johnson reference in the concept. Mick Boyle made some classic Trashpo pieces for the show too:

Mick Boyle also included some fan art that, as I recall, dated from the time when the Secret Santas were putting spells on me. I will take the high road and refrain from a rant about the conspiracy against the Karnival of Trash that is so obviously afoot.

Here is the envelope the way it arrived in my post office box:
