Paraph

2015-16

Canada Post mail basket, clay, acrylic paint and used postage stamps

Trust and integrity, the entire thing depends on their silence. Human emotions encapsulated in coloured
envelops, surrounding the thoughts on paper. So many people play a part. The rainbow of colour is the perfect vessel for all the things that humans feel.

Paper is organic covered in swirls and loops of the sender touched by the receiver. The touching through handwriting,
pen and paper across a distance. The effort of write, enclose a letter and mail it makes it a cherished object, a special gift, to be held with a type of reverence.

The paraph, the flourish at the end of a signature marks each individual as unique.  Each flourish developed by the mark making.
The signature, a security device, to keep things secure, to validity of documents when written

Writing a letter is an investment in the person you are sending it to and in the system that delivers the mail.
The physical evidence of the letter can remain on this planet for years to come. The receiver gets it free of charge,
no cost to come to your door, no commitment to opening it. If it is from someone that is unwanted by the receiver it can be left unopened,
if it may be hurtful and may leave a mark.
