I am very interested in working with orange construction fences.
In 2002, I started seeing different patterns, shapes and sizes of orange construction fences as they were being used at many construction sites as a barrier to keep people out of danger by blocking off the site.
I think in grids, and because of that, I fell in love with the fences immediately. After watching the fences out in their element over time, I noticed that on hot days they can get limp and sag, and on cold days they sometimes crack and break.
At times my use of the printed fence follows the grid, and at other times I like to break it apart, the same as can happen in the life of an actual construction fence.
My work is a combination of monoprinted fences, hand stamped, hand painted, and sometimes stitched, fabric that I either mount of boards or stiffened to waterproof, which also provides a construction fence-like feel when touching it.
