Artist's Statement

This installation in my back yard is a combination of an actual construction fence, installed with layers of the monoprinted texture of a construction fence on fabric. The fabric was stiffened to help make it weatherproof and more stable. Holes were then cut into the fabric to more resemble actual construction fences, to help enable the viewer to experience nature around and through the work, to allow a clematis to grow through it, and also to allow the wind to blow through it so it are more adaptable in different kinds of weather.

Jeanne is documenting this piece over time. You can see her visual documentation of them below, and also on her blog.
