Fence and Header No 2
112 x 137 cms 2007
Having decided to go back to the twisted fence I used in Fence and Skull, I re-photographed the fence from every angle. It will be obvious that it's very difficult to separate the wire from the background or to resolve exactly which strand of wire is going where but, in my opinion, a wire fence can't be 'made up' as it reflects every trauma that has ever happened to it. Seen in the abstract, the wire is a knot, a difficulty.
The mud is now the rich red ochre of the Mid North of South Australia.
