I Need You To Survive

Mail Art Salon - March 24, 2018

It has been a little less than a month since my last Mail Art Project, and I still feel the need to make art in response to current affairs.  The official release of this project coincides with the March for Our Lives scheduled for March 24 in Washington DC. 

I recently heard the song "I Need You To Survive" written by David Frazier and it prompted me to create this current project.  Here are the lyrics:

I need you
You need me
We're all a part of God's body
Stand with me
Agree with me
We're all a part of God's body
It is his will that every need be supplied
You are important to me
I need you to survive 

I pray for you
You pray for me
I love you
I need you to survive
I won't harm you
With words from my mouth
I love you
I need you to survive

The images in this project were created using fragments of figure drawings; the "Red Cross" as a symbol of safety and help that does not discriminate; an overlay of tissue printed with vines and leaves; and a swash of golden paint.  

Let me know if this Project speaks to you.  As always, I think that Art is a Healing Force.  

Everyone deserves to receive art in the mail from time to time.
