Postcards that challenge you like art

We’re not the kind to grab souvenir postcards with touristy scenic photographs, so when we found these postcards at MAD, the Museum of Art & Design during our outpost in Singapore, featuring Sweden-based Finnish artist Yrjo Edelmann’s work, we grabbed all of them.

Potential Energy in Black and Blue, oil painting by Yrjo Edelmann, 2010
An Area of Recognition of Green, oil painting by Yrjo Edelmann, 2010
Stringed Parcel in Brown Harmonic Motion, oil painting by Yrjo Edelmann, 2009

What grabbed us is that the postcards look like photographs of paper packages, but the credits on the back of the postcards say they’re really oil paintings of paper packages. Imagine the artistry needed to blur the lines between photography and painting in his work and the ingenuity of the artist to confront us with something so mundane as paper packages in his art.

  1. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement.

    Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being ripped off?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.
