EXPO ‘Robert Baines: Frisches Fleisch – Fresh Meat’ – Pieces of Eight Gallery, Melbourne (AU) – 4 Oct.-13 Nov. 2011

Robert Baines: Frisches Fleisch – Fresh Meat

Pieces of Eight Gallery proudly presents an exhibition of new work by Robert Baines, Frisches Fleisch : Fresh Meat. Baines is one of Australia’s most highly regarded and internationally recognised jewellers and goldsmiths. His exhibition at Pieces of Eight Gallery sees Baines create a commentary on what he views to be the endangerment of the original idea and the practice of plagiarism in contemporary jewellery. Utilising the technique of casting, something not typically seen in his work, he furthers his case and punctuates his argument by the frequent inclusion in many of the pieces of the Rothschild Red Giraffe, itself an endangered species.


Robert Baines is Professor of Art and Gold and Silversmithing at RMIT School of Art and postgraduate coordinator of Gold & Silversmithing. He is an internationally respected goldsmith, researcher, academic and author. He is the winner of the most significant awards in his field, namely The Bayerischer Staatspreis 2005 and the Friedrich Becker Preis 2008. His most recent books published are Bracelet’Java-la-Grande’ (Palgrave Macmillan 2006) and More Amazing Schmuck Stories by Robert Baines (Australia Scholarly Publishing 2009).
