Jennifer Beinhacker - Art Outside The Edge
weathered garden trellis 1: eden twisted 2
2010
i had this "garden trellis" in my garden for several years. and yes, the "objects" were attached (i have a strange garden!). when i felt the trellis was sufficiently "weathered" i brought it in and "made art"!
i usually put objects in my garden to weather them. i like the "look".

of course the "back" painting was not weathered in my garden. i painted it and attached the trellis to it.

mixed media: weathered garden trellis, dolls, nails, collaged paper, bone, jewels, shells, cord, drink stirrer, glass globules, beads, mirrors, safety pins, necklace, barrette, milagros, straight pins, acrylic paint, spray paint, watercolor paint, glass hearts, key chain

38" x 18 1/2" x 3"

comments made:

The "tortured" doll and parts placed on the trellis has a very crucifixion feel to it. Blended with the other elements I find illuminating women and the ongoing world-wide struggle for equality and freedom from sexual discrimmination, cultural and faith-based (religious) sexism. Feminism vs martyrdom... It makes me think of lots of women's issues with the rose-colored glasses suddenly stripped away. Provocative and powerful!!

Excellent and creative work!

This is great!!!!! I really like all the elements and the colors.

I agree the colors are fabulous! Fantastic!

Jennifer
Mega-cool! A great work! Nice garden variety of colors, but nothing 'garden variety' about it!

Jennifer I love this , it has a history to it being part of your own garden that is so cool! Those colors are warm and gorgeous.

Jennifer, Jennifer, how does your garden grow? It sounds divine. I have a friend who's garden is wild with all sorts of colorful things here and there amongst the flowers and it's fantastic. For some reason, I believe yours must be as well. This is very cool.

instant fave. this rocks

Wahoo! Jennifer, dig this whole series deeply! that apricot/orangey tone sets it into Energy mode for me... amazing how the many details become sub-works on their own... grand work!

You never cease to amaze me!
