Walking along the sidewalk, in Wilmington NC, I strolled upon a chickenwire fence decorated with keys.
The fence seems to be an attempt to contain the wild flowers that are gradually creeping their way sunward.
I looked at it for a while. Wondering why and how and who....
Most people probably wouldn't call it art, but I do.
I think that's exactly what art is supposed to do...make the viewer wonder all kinds of things.
Take the viewer somewhere else completely.
I love the contrasty combo of flowers growing wild and metal fencing (used for small farm animals and other odd structures).
Add the keys, and you get a whole new layer of mystery.
Would love to know the story behind it...but I am also afraid it won't be as good as the ones I make up!
