I don’t sing or play guitar. But, like most people, I love art.
A friend suggested that I consider my gate and fence installations to be “my art”. Knowing that many people are involved with our installations, I asked, “How could I say that this is ‘mine’?”. My friend replied that many of the masters, when doing large works, had others who contributed to the work under the artists’ directions. He mentioned Michelangelo’s painting on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel as an example.
So, at risk of sounding pretentious, I’d like to present to you, my art: the art of well-designed and installed gates and fences. (To show that I am not completely without humility, I’ll soon include names and images of the skilled artisans who create these with me. Without them these things would have never become real!)
