« Dreams of Arcadia » – Stephen Gallagher – new jewellery

Inspired by the symbolic excess and opulent materialism of England’s Elizabethan period, Gallagher questions the role of value within contemporary jewellery practice, asking ‘what makes something precious?’ Historical reference is central to his work; however this is not simply about replicas. The Elizabethan period is fertile ground for Gallagher, who attempts to understand the symbolism of the materials and configurations of the Elizabethans. These coded Tudor allegories, though obscured by time, are retrieved and resuscitated by Gallagher, who recalibrates them and works them with refreshing verve into his contemporary jewellery.
