Mail-art by Claudia McGill (Wyncote, Pennsylvania, USA)

We are thrilled to be adding this gorgeous collage by Claudia McGill to the MinXus USA Archives. We have had this piece displayed on an Overlook Hotel table and have been admiring it for a long time, but apparently it was never officially documented. This is a gorgeous example of Claudia’s collage work that uses images of household items and furniture.  The abstract background, we believe, is particularly stunning.

Most of the work we receive from Claudia McGill is done on an oversize postcard format, at least twice the size of a regular postcard. She seems to be very good at assessing scale to give the work a maximum powerful impact.

As ever, thank you Miss Claudia!

    Thank you so much. I appreciate your interest in my work and the nomination. But, I’m very sorry, I don’t participate in awards. I just don’t have much time and to complicate things I am recovering from hand surgery. So I will have to decline. But thank you again.
