Wonky, Bloggit and Dickensian
I've just started another blog called "obscure" (see links) that is my contribution to Vittore Baroni's "Year of Obscure Actions". It was Hazel's idea really - she noticed a nice book about the backs of photographs in the library whilst researching artist's books for her students and this gave me the idea. How obscure and at the same time not obscure. I always like the backs of paintings, especially abstracts which seemed far more interesting than the fronts! I love the backs of lots of Joseph Cornell's box constructions as usually they had a collage that was just as fascinating as the front view. When trying to frame postcards its a hard choice whether to choose the picture side or the writing side with the stamps and frankings etc. both of which are equally important and note-worthy.
