Studio Without Walls 2010 installation

Installation created with Weathered Fences #4 - #6, mixed media on stiffened fabric.

Many construction sites use plastic orange fences as a barrier to keep people out of danger, by blocking off the site. The fences come in many shapes and sizes, and Jeanne has been collecting different kinds of fences for many years.

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. This installation was created by using a combination of monoprinted textures of orange construction fences and painted and hand stamped shapes, on one large piece of fabric that was stitched to highlight different lines and patterns, and then stiffened. Holes are cut in each piece, following some of the pattern of the construction fences.

Weathered Fences #4 (the center section of the installation) was stolen in May 2010 while on exhibit.
