Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
The 3 postcards are fragments of narratives that could play out in myriad ways. They are love letters to couples observed in pubs, on trains, in cyberspace. These couples are not necessarily linked romantically, but they are two people having joyous, intense conversations, sharing unexpected moments of connection.
