WIDER THAN A POSTCARD SHOWSaturday, May 4, 2013
I am happy to be included in a very fun show here in Portland called Wider Than A Postcard. Curated by Arrested Motion's Sven Davis
at Breeze Block Gallery, the show features over 200 artists creating works exclusively on a 4x6 horizontal postcard format.. The result is over 400 postcards filling the walls by artists across the globe..
Check out the monster inventory of the show and see images here: http://breezeblockgalleryinventory.com/collections/postcard-show
These are my 2 postcards, from previous cities I lived. I just want to be clear these are not commenting on victims of terrorism (especially with the recent happenings in Boston) although that might be timely.. Actually, I wanted to comment on the role of crime and the mafia in helping build these fair cities that I've lived...
