Jennifer Beinhacker - Art Outside The Edge
dialogues of the dead-5th dialogue : the visit
2011
mixed media: on wood: acrylic paint, collaged paper, stamps, graphite pencil
24" X 19"
debates in the nether regions between the shades of real and imagined characters, sometimes with supernatural beings.

i have always been visited by family and friends who have died. they come to visit me in my dreams. although they never talk to me (the dead can't talk) i know they are coming to see me and see how everything is going. my most often visitor is my beloved mother-in-law. i am always delighted to see her because i love her very much and miss her every day. when she was still alive i would often call her to tell her that dad (her husband, neal's father) had come to me. she would always ask me how did he look. i would reply he looked wonderful. she took much comfort in that.
this summer a good friend of mine died. i dreamt about him and in my dream i said "can you see, he is not dead, he is not dead". but alas, he did not speak......he just came to see me since i had been on summer holiday when he died and i did not get a chance to say goodbye.
i find it very comforting to have everyone come to see me.....

COMMENTS MADE:

Thank you for sharing your extraordinary experiences and the art derived from them....it is always interesting to find what motivated the artist to express themselves.....in a certain way....

strong composition... interesting theme and context

very powerful - I wish I had those kind of visits = )

Jennifer: I love reading what you have to say about the dead, the spirits, the places beyond the obvious... in your thoughts, words and art. I find a lot of comfort in what you see, do and display. It's so interesting, but also refreshingly honest and creative.

Good work!!!

Jennifer--You are so creatively fantastic--like a modern day Shaman--& you have the most maginificent imagination {more like a cosmic consciousness) that you freely share with all your fans! I feel like incorporating some of your most eccentric ideas into a poem, story or other type of creation & dedicating it to you! Don't ever stop your stunning creativity & narratives- John. Best Wishes for a Fantastic Weekend!

Amazing..

Your work is looking great

Wonderful. I too see those who have departed this world. It started about 12 yrs ago and has gotten more frequent with the passing of time. I don't talk about it much because of the general disbelief and scoffs of those that are incapable of seeing for themselves. It never instills any sense of fear in me, rather, I hope only that it provides some sense of comfort to those who still wander on this earthly plane even after to death.

well done

Another very well done . And I must say, delightfully disturbing:)

J'aime vraiment ton article car moi aussi je crois à la vie après la mort car nos morts ne sont plus ou ils étaient mais ils sont partout ou nous sommes avec leur esprit…..ça fait tellement de bien de sentir leurs présence dans nos rêves !!! J'aime aussi beaucoup cette peinture, quel travail gigantesque !!!

great work jennifer....very powerful!

excellent work jennifer

I love the way you help my eyes take a journey...great work

I'm still happily disturbed:)

awesome story...you are truly blessed.

I always look forward and delight in your work, Jennifer !!

Great

Well thought out and composed. Hope you are well.

Wonderful work, Jennifer!

The spirits of those who have passed on, especially those we know, some we hold closely and some not so, will appear from time to time. Mostly in a fond manner, and at times, others as a nightmare.
A very creative painting Jennifer to recall some of the people in your life that have visited you.

Hello Jennifer lovely work as always:) Have a wonderful weekend!!

Awesome work of art and narrative to go with it!

Awesome work!
