Being far from my family of origin, from a lot of my friends. I wanted to show them I care and send them love.
In the e-mail era, I find is difficult to show real caring with emoticons and GIFs, even a personal e-mail is not as personal as a hand written letter.
Writing a letter is almost a revolutionary act, going against automatisms, it means going back to basics. Is a way to be romantic when love is reduced to porn, tinder and likes in this chaos of fast everything. Art postal or Mail art is a form of art that passions me because it is slow, it is romantic and it holds in it visual art and written thoughts.
Love letters is my mail art project. I'm usually writing to family, friends and people I care about, under my real name, sometimes under my pen-name Lola, sometimes with my married name Lion.
