This is one of the pieces I created for the Clutch group show at Santé. Besides the theme of Heaven, the idea (as with every show we do) was completely open. Considering what an abstract concept heaven is, it was a little daunting. I thought about how humankind has spent a millenia attempting to define what it's like (and developing a staggering variety of views in the process). Then I thought about what it would be like if things were a bit different -- if heaven was a more tangible place, one where we were able to get postcards from family and friends, even if we couldn't go there ourselves (yet). So here's the final result of all that pondering -- with a hefty influence from some 19th century French postcards of Paris I've been looking at lately, too.
