I took apart my Music Tastes Good 2016 installation to create a 3-d fence mural. (It took me a while to boil this project down into that sentence.)
Where to start:
I unhinged my “Found Windows” installation frames and separated out some of their parts. (Many thanks to my carpenter friend who helped me piece the installation together, to begin with!) I finagled the pieces into a bloomage lacking area on the side of the house. (I coated the wood with some weather protecting sealant to help it keep through sprinklers, dew, rain.)I freshened up the chalk-boards for re-use with soap, water, and elbow-grease.This project started as part of my studio organization, where I had other smaller frames, which I tried out as ornament along the fence. I like the look but preferred to see the fence as a large canvas, not many little ones. I painted the fence throughout the month of July. It started with a cat, desk, and window. I added mirrors to the sides of one of the frames to capture the light and engage the surroundings. I love mirrors. They’re automatically site-specific. I painted friendly boxes and figures talking with their hands. Flowers and clouds finding their ways into the scenery. There’s a secret side to this fence post that you can only see at night and with a special light. Also, I painted a living room on a door. Stay tuned to see!
