Art as the Illusion of Function

Here are some pieces of fence art I've found around the property. Sadly, the exhibits you see here will be dismantled as soon as the frost is out of the ground, so view them while you can!

This is a particularly fine piece of sculpting done by a series of horses over about two years. A group effort, but a cohesive one. They all had the same vision, obviously.

I especially like this piece, done in wood and metal, tied together nicely with the bright orange twine.

A fine antiquing effect was used on this linear piece.

One of my favourites, this piece gives the illusion of solidity with thick vertical lines, offset by the falling diagonal.

  1. Lol- I love it! Beautiful use of mixed media. The first pic had me stumped. I thought it was a mountainscape.
