Artist's Statement

The Weathered Fence Series is based on how construction fences weather outdoors in the elements. On hot days they can get limp and sag, and on cold days they sometimes crack.

These pieces are monoprinted, handstamped, handpainted, and stitched fabric, that is stiffened, to provide a construction fence-like feel when touching it. Holes are cut out of various parts of the stiffened fabric, so shadows and pattern can be seen through it. These pieces can be exhibited a few inches away from the wall, or as an installation where viewers can walk around it to see both sides of these pieces (both sides have color on them), just as one might walk around an actual construction fence.

 

Most of the pieces on this site are for sale. Please contact Jeanne for prices and availability.
