"Current Affairs" is a series of works that respond both to pre and post election, personally as a woman, and more broadly, as a citizen reconsidering social justice and the integrity of the political climate.
My friend Kate Fauvell encouraged me to collaborate with her on the USPS Art Project by appropriating her work into this piece during the pandemic. I'm grateful, and a big "thank you" to Kate. This image has more meaning to me since my father came from the era of the Great Depression, and worked at the postal union. It was considered a stable job with a pension coming from him being a first-generation American of an immigrant family.
The USPS Art Project is a mail art artist collaboration project, free and open for anyone who wants to participate. The goal is for unique collaborative artworks to be created, allowing the artists to establish deeper connections with others while practicing social distancing and in doing so, help the financially struggling USPS by sending and receiving packages. The finished artworks are shared online on the @uspsartproject social media accounts.
