Leaving is hard. Like that last relationship I had with that guy who did nothing wrong. Or my friends party where everyone else forgot to show up...Or the country when things go to shit. How do you know when to stay and stick through it? & I'm Leaving is a short rumination on tricky situations you might one day find yourself in (happy ending included)
The envelope with gold is a nice classy way to leave someone a good bye letter. Also included are some cards to help you exit. 

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Originally from Minneapolis, Carissa Potter lives and works in Oakland, California. Her prints and small-scale objects reflect her hopeless romanticism through their investigations into public and private intimacy. Speaking both humorously and poignantly to the human condition. Carissa's work touches chords we all can relate to - exploring situations we've all experienced at some point in our lives and conveying messages we simply long to hear. Carissa Potter is a founding member of the Colpa Press and founder of People I've Loved. Since 2010, she has been an artist in residence at Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, where she teaches letterpress. She also serves as a mentor in Southern Exposure's One-on-One Mentor-ship Program. She finished her first book with Chronicle Books in 2015 titled "I like you, I love you." In 2016, Carissa was an artist in residence at Facebook. Currently she is working on being a better listener and her second book, titled "You Will Feel Better."
