In this session we were asked to bring vintage postcards in and to be prolific, doing just one thing to it eg cut, paint , collage as in the bizzarre combination before of the Lake District.
I'd bought 6 postcards of Ramsgate and Margate from 1908 to 1935 on Faversham market and mainly worked into copies of the fronts and backs
We had a quick look at artists who'd used postcards including Ruth Claxton
Some of my output.... ( I made some 'postcards' from images in magazines as well as using copies and originals).
With these I 'chopped and swapped 'the front and back of a postcard( above)
and 2 different images of the same vintage (below)
We packed up early, leaving our postcards on the wall and then played a curatorial exercise, each choosing 2 cards to display together, some really interesting juxtapositions occurring.
2 pieces of mine were chosen by different people ( on right hand side above), they look very different in these contexts than when combined with my own work.
