Mel MILLER, contemporary jeweller based in Melbourne

« I completed a Master of Arts in Gold and Silversmithing at RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia in 2009, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Metalsmithing) at Arizona State University, USA in 2004. My work has been exhibited nationally and internationally including at the renowned international exhibition of emerging artists ‘Talente’ in Munich, 2011, and in ‘Jewellery Topos’ touring to Galerie Marzee, the Netherlands and Gallery Loupe, USA during 2009-11.

I’m interested in the luminosity, colour and texture of materials usually regarded as mundane, and the transformation of materials and the stories they tell. My work explores transformations of landscapes into jewellery with an Impressionist concern for colour and light, as well as the transformative effects of memory and the tradition of storytelling. Background becomes foreground; the recollected story becomes history; the mundane becomes magical!

You can also find my work at Arbor Jewels in Melbourne and Studio 20/17 in Sydney. »*TfetoNH/IMG_7413_1.jpg?width=737&height=491

EXPO ‘Australian Jewelry TOPOS’ – Gallery Loupe, Montclair (New Jersey, US) – 10 Mars-2 Avril 2011

« The theme of « topos » (place) is explored through a diverse and fascinating group of jewelry objects. The group will be joined by Professor Elizabeth Grierson, Head of the School of Art, RMIT University, and Professor Robert Baines, PhD, Postgraduate Coordinator of the Gold and Silversmithing Department.
“Jewelry is a bearer of cultural and historical meaning and memory. In particular it is concerned with the relations of those meanings with the personal and urban settings, acting as a way of defining and interpreting ‘topos’ (meaning ‘of place’, Greek). The concern of this jewelry research is to recognise and explore the ways the jewelry artefact opens our engagement with, and understanding of, the personal and external places we inhabit. Jewelry conveys settings of human identity and presence as well as external settings such as urban spaces and ‘topos’ takes on a broader significance as place itself becomes an expanded notion. Jewelry Topos explores the ways jewelry engages with our understanding of the physical and metaphorical places we inhabit.”
