Over the Edge, The Postage Stamp Paintings of Molly Rausch

I used to dabble in philately when I was a kid. My grandmother got me started with some collector's sets and books to put them in. I used to flip through those books all the time, marveling at all the scenes depicted on the tiny canvases, but I never gave much thought to what lay beyond the perforated edges, until now. Artist, Molly Rausch answers that very question for us with this series of postage stamp paintings that expand our view to a "zoomed out" and illuminating look at what might be out there. Very cool.

  1. Charming and nostalgic. I recognized many of the stamps in her archive.
    It's incredible that she does these free hand.
