Velvet da Vinci  Nikki Couppee HOLOGEMS May 11 – June 19, 2016  Artist’s Reception: Friday, May 13, 2016, 6-8pm:

 Nikki Couppee’s recent work talks about the different functions jewelry performs in society. Objects of personal adornment have the ability to define a person’s social statues, serve as a redeemable investment and perform on a psychological level. Working with everyday materials like Plexiglass, brass, and found objects in place of precious gems and metals she intuitively creates her own versions of gemstones, hand cast and faceted in luminescent plastics. In the series Hologems, Couppee combines holographic and synthetic materials with resins, creating fantastical frozen corsage brooches, lustrous, glow-in-the-dark gems, and collaged ornaments that are at once over-the-top and elegant. The work is further inspired by growing up on the beach in Florida, the 90’s, Crown Jewels, and costume jewelry
