|Rubber Stamp - by Daniel Eatock|
I'm a big fan of Daniel Eatock's postcard art. You might remember he was one of the artists featured in the show THE POSTCARD IS A PUBLIC WORK OF ART in London earlier in the year.
Above are both sides of Daniel's brilliant 'Rubber Stamp' postcard. The front is a picture of a rubber ink stamp, which prints stamps. On the back, in the top right-hand corner, is a stamp stamped by the stamp.
I wrote to Daniel to find out more about the design.
He replied as follows...
the object is the work
the postcard displays a picture of the object and an impression from the object
the postcard becomes an infinite loop as the impression on the reverse depicts a stamp but references a frank mark, the cancellation process for stamps
the title Rubber Stamp is funny
|A stamp for stamps|
