Timothy McMahon: (un)earth

The latest work by jeweler Timothy McMahon is presented under the title (un)earth, classifying the series of brooches and body objects in the realm of anti-rocks, frozen nonsensically at a point of fictional metamorphosis between raw ore and traditionally refined object. Symbolically these pieces seek to unearth the truth of material as buried by process, technique, and labor. Oversized and ornamental prongs compete with cut gems while both become engulfed by geological chunks of shattered enamel. The snake begins to eat its tail as these objects inch closer to a genuine desire to become the objects of their own origin.

I find inspiration in a system of evolution as applied to personal aesthetic. Each piece I create causes questions to form that can only be answered—and evaluated—through subsequent work. This design process leads me to explore issues of scale, color harmony, and form that reveal the core of what pleases, revolts, and bores me—equally important subjects. In sharing these experimentations in the form of jewelry I confront and challenge others to question their own aesthetic and (re)define how they see their own world.”

Decouverte : Leslie MATTHEWS – jewelry for ‘emotional & physical sensations’

Classé dans : Australie (AU),Leslie MATTHEWS (AU),metal — bijoucontemporain @ 0:03

Jeweller Leslie Matthews latest pieces display a distinctive use of silver that is polarised between glowing white or oxidised black through varying treatments to the metal.
Leslie Matthews is Studio Head of Jewellery and Metal at the South Australian School of Art. Leslie has been a practicing contemporary jeweller and object maker for over 20 years and has exhibited consistently, locally, nationally and internationally. The themes connected to her work include cultural dislocation and familial history, as well as an interconnecting overlay of personal narrative/story telling through memory.

Leslie Matthews is a partner of the Gray Street Workshop. She creates work that relates to the body as a vessel for ‘emotional and physical sensations’. She has exhibited extensively in Australia and overseas with recent exhibitions across the United States, Britain, the Netherlands and Japan. In 2004 Matthews was awarded the Florence Joyner Bequest from the University of South Australia and has previously been given an Award of Merit by the Royal Institute of Architects SA.
