Tina Festa -- Matera -- ITALIA

Tina sent this lovely textual textile triptych. Her work arrived in the mailbox on my midwest front porch in absolutely pristine condition, despite having been posted bare naked. As if the Kwan Yin of Mail Art protected them on their voyage. Exhibiting definite elements of visual poetry, these works are meticulously crafted. Her technique is outstanding:  It takes steady hand-eye coordination to select, compose, and sew pieces like this -- pieces that include a hefty amount of antique and vintage papers.  Not to mention fierce composure to allow them to wing their way unprotected by an envelope! 
Molte grazie, Tina!
