Postal Modern

This is an example from a project called Post Modern, where I mailed 30 blank canvases to myself in the post. The only text on each canvas was an instruction to the postal workers, inviting them to draw on the canvas, should they wish to do so. The canvases ranged from very small (30 x 30mm to very large, 1000 x 600mm). I once worked for the Royal Mail, where I met many aspiring artists. This project was a way of giving those creative Royal Mail workers the opportunity to express themselves.The canvases also comprise scuff marks and other minor damaged areas, capturing the journey taken through the postal system.
