Artist's Statement

The Weathered Fence Series is a combination of monoprinted textures of orange construction fences, with painted and hand stamped shapes, on one large piece of fabric. The fabric was stitched to highlight different lines and patterns, and then stiffened to help make it more stable. Holes were then cut into the work to more resemble actual construction fences, to help enable the viewer to experience nature around and through the work, and allow the wind to blow through them so they are more adaptable in different kinds of weather.

Jeanne is documenting these pieces to see how stitched and painted fabric does living out in nature. Weathered Fence Series #7 and Weathered Fence Series #8 were installed outside in her yard in mid to late-May 2010, and have been outside for over two years to date. You can see her visual documentation of them below, and also on her blog.
