Karnival of Trash Mail Art Call: Trashpo by twj (aka Timothy Waldron) (Belchertown, Massachusetts, USA)


Mail art by twj (aka Timothy Waldron, Belchertown, USA)

Timothy Waldron is a “Normal” in the sense that he is not a Kulter or a known trashpoet. But the Karnival of Trash is hardly Deletist, and twj apparently knows his way around the landfill. This is a great addition to the show. This piece is unpackaged, classic Trashpo mounted on an approximately 8.5 X 11 inch “distressed” and torn notebook or sketchbook cover (possibly).


At first I thought B-town was Boston. When I discovered twj is from Belchertown, I thought it was a joke. Turns out it’s a real place. Based on some typography I also thought this was another assault by the Lone Gunman Neoist or some iteration of Miss Noma. The paranoia fog burned away, and twj does not seem to be a T.O.X.I.S. agent.

So many thanks for this outstanding contribution to the Karnival of Trash!
