Curated by Michael Dale Bernard and Tara LocklearArtists’ reception Friday, January 11 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Monochrome Noir: Curated by Michael Dale Bernard and Tara Locklear - Participating artists:  Allyson Bone, Sara Brown, Ashley Buchanan, Kat Cole, Gabriel Craig, Michael Dale Bernard, Robert Ebendorf, Réka Fekete Réka, Arthur Hash, Sarah Holden, Yevgeniya Kaganovich, Tara Locklear, Nick Mullins, Katie Poterala, Marissa Saneholtz, Loring Taoka, The Opulent Project, Robert Thomas Mullen, Tanel Veenre, Stephanie Voegele, Sarah West, Laura Wood, Leia Zumbro - Photo: Becky Parker

Monochrome Noir features work that boldly flaunts deep fields of black and that is punctuated with the perfect placement of a single color. These contemporary jewelry artists rely on the sleek, darker side of the monochromatic view. Often using found or recycled materials, much of this work presents a narrative inspired by geography, architecture, historical motifs, and decorative arts. The exhibition installation will also include portraits featuring the jewelry from Monochrome Noir by North Carolina photographer Becky Parker. This collection of jewelry and portraits alternates between punk and formal, irreverent and elegant. The show includes 22 artists from the United States, Estonia, and The Netherlands.

Sienna Gallery debuted the project last April at SOFA NY where we installed a photobooth. This format provided visitors with an experience outside of the typical museum-like presentation of jewelry and objects at SOFA. We encouraged people to have fun interacting with our jewelry. Viewers instantly became wearers, modeling our jewelry for a printed souvenir photo-strip. And in some sense the wearer became a « collector » and jewelry became « collected » through physical printed image and solidified through social media.

COUP de COEUR : Katie POTERALA – I’m under affl… no, addiction !

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Katie POTERALA (US),USA — bijoucontemporain @ 0:05

 Katie POTERALA

« I am intrigued by the irony of and differences between perceived and intrinsic value.
My work is an attempt to exploit the boundary between valuable and invaluable, provide the viewer with a universally accessible place of departure, and to provoke a dialogue about values and perception.
Recognizable forms reference objects of understood or accepted value. Jewelry objects, although familiar, are altered to become introspective and uncommon. Modifications, mutations, and unexpected surfaces and appendages call into question our concept of the precious, the significance and value of bodily adornment, and the social values that drive both. Both the body and familial objects and environments act as hosts, providing a context that addresses the importance of place and image: specific concerns that motivate the values we possess. »
