A pop-up exhibition of postal artwork by Yael Roberts.

Picture?width=50&height=50 Yael Roberts

792 postcards. 144 letters. 40 stamp designs. 9 artist-writers. 4 couples. 1 journal.

Who, or what, inspires us? How do we define inspiration? "Correspondences" explores these questions by looking at the relationships between artist-muse couples in the 19th and 20th century: Lewis Carroll and Alice Liddell, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Elizabeth Siddal, Georgia O’Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz, Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera.

The exhibition is an installation of 9 lithographic portraits, created from postal art. The artwork is based on the letters and diaries of the 8 historical figures, and on the correspondences of the artist over the past year about inspiration with friends and famous artists and writers.

"Correspondences" is both a literal and figurative look at how we connect and communicate, and what inspires us to do so.
