Shibumi Gallery : Illume
Jane D’Arensbourg – Glass Jewelry / Lighting
+ Amy Ruppel – Monoprints / Paintings
Opening / Artist Reception: Saturday March 28, 5-8pm
Shibumi Gallery is pleased to announce, Illume, a joint show with jeweler / sculptor Jane D’Arensbourg and printmaker Amy Ruppel.
Illume is an investigation into cast light, shadows and the creations of patterns and forms.
Jane D’Arensbourg uses glass as a vehicle to capture light, energy and a sense of fragility with her work. She views her jewelry and lighting as functional art.
« There is a time in the day in my studio when the sun pours in and everything comes to life as sunlight slowly travels around my studio, casting beams of light through all of the glass sculptures, jewelry, lighting, and experiments. Light vibrates through the skeletal facets, corners and open planes. The shadows cast on surfaces is this energy broken up into patterns which can be used as a vehicle for meditation by the viewer. »
D’Arensbourg studied glass art at California College of Arts and Crafts as well as the Pilchuck School of Glass. After working more sculpturally, she began making jewelry in 2001.
She currently lives and works in New York City.
