A series of small paintings made from postcards sent to me between the 1970s and 1990s. 

They are 6 x 4 x 1 inches. I transferred image and text onto stretched canvas (I still have the actual postcards)

I made over 100 of these little canvasses in 1997 and exhibited them as an installation. Now I'm painting onto them with oil paint - some at least - and selling them for just £40, which I will donate to small humanitarian charities. thousand4thousand that supports refugees living in Brighton and Hove. And also to Re-Build, a charity supporting earthquake victims in Kurdistan - Turkey and Syria.

please email me if you would like to buy any of these paintings or would like to visit my studio in Brighton. mail@rachelcohen.co.uk
