portfolio > assemblages

i was taking a walk and came across, in the trash, two of these round wood pieces. the shapes appealed to me immediately.
they sat in my studio for ages until i finally figured out what i wanted to do with them.
i am currently working on the second piece of wood which will be a companion piece to this.

because i photographed it head on some of the pieces do not show up as clearly as they do when you are actually looking at it.
the "dark" color of some of the dolls is because i "plant" them in my garden and let sun, wind, rain, snow age them.
and yes...i did rip off the heads!

your orchestration of the seemingly random is outstanding within the structures, from mandalas to box frames, that you choose because they speak so eloquently to the outsider, the left-fielder. It's inspirational.

Oh, beautiful, strong Jennifer!!

Hi dear! What an amazing collage this! congratulations!

Definitely some wild artwork

Imaginative and intriguing. I, too, am fascinated with the endless circle. There are many possible metaphysical interpretations for this piece. Inspired work!

A cool circle of the Queen of the Spiders...Awsome.

beautiful art! ... as always! :] oOo

A wonderful mandela. Full of life and promises.

Fantastic Jennifer!! :o)

Like a surrealistic clock, nicely assembled

Serving you a plate of dolls...like chopsticks, Jennifer!!!!

This is seriously fantastic work Jennifer, I love the doll at the bottom, the way her hair and the beads are falling.

Seu processo criativo é tão espetacular e fascinante quanto as suas obras. Fico alegre e maravilhado sempre que me deparo com uma obra sua. Elas são instigantes e tornam toda a nossa percepção e entendimento em ilusão; pois elas vão além de nossa imaginação.
Essa mandala é uma viagem única para a arte experimental, onírica e ousada. Abraços minha amiga.

Scary ... but compelling ;-)!

love it J!

The show must go on. No answers. No rules. Not comfort Just the coincidence. We are on the plate ready to be served. while we imagine Life is under our control. while we imagine there must be Something More. Wheel of Mis/Fortune never stops running
