Temporary Site Specific Art on Exhibit

My apologies for neglecting my blog for a number of weeks.

Fence/Curtain 1.1 has been on exhibit at the Jackson Homestead in Newton, MA, in a show of temporary site specific art, since March. 

Fence/Curtain 1.1
mixed media on stiffened fabric
24' long x 48" high (plus the draped fabric) attached to an old bent 6' metal fence.

Fence/Curtain 1.1 is a repurposed decorative barrier. It was originally created in 2011 as a 35' long installation that gave the illusion of the curtain, valance, different layers of fabric, and the drape of the curtain on the construction site of the future performance hall for the ConstellationCenter which will be located in Kendall Square, Cambridge, MA.

It is made of monoprinted textures of different patterns of construction fencing, and handstamped and hand painted geometric shapes, on cotton fabric that is stiffened and water resistant.

mixed media on stiffened fabric, 22" high x 54"+/- around the tree

Fence Holes Bandage 2.0 is installed on a nearby tree. It's made of hand painted, scalloped rows and "holes" of monoprinted textures of construction fencing, on cotton fabric that is stiffened and water resistant. It is also repurposed after being on exhibit at Art in the Park, in Elm Park in Worcester, MA last summer.

If you happen to be in or near Newton, MA before July 18th, try to go visit the show. If not, you can read about it in Art New England.
