Take 5 readymade materials purchased at the dollar store & give value to something invaluable by creating 3 wearable pieces of jewelry. This challenge feeds into the contemporary jewelry artists’ interest in working with non-precious & alternative materials.
The group includes three American and three European artists. They are Bruce Metcalf, Demi Thomloudis, Timothy Veske-McMahon, Sofia Björkman, Réka Lörinz and Gisbert Stach.
Each artist received a box containing five standard size white envelopes, a small white towel, three white erasers, three CDs, and a can of Diet Coke. The materials were chosen because they are all white and echo a metaphorical blank page. These items can also be manipulated in multiple ways.

« My studio practice relies on a drawing process where forms and ideas develop intuitively through the initial exploration of a line on paper. In these works industrial steel becomes transparent and delicate as cuts made with the jeweler’s saw reflect the quality of a line drawn by hand … I am constantly trying to capture small moments of contrast where control and imperfection collide. »

  »My work starts with an intuitive experimental play with found materials, which usually come from my immediate surroundings. In the process of experimenting, the materials are being thoroughly transformed; the original source cannot be identified anymore … My jewelry pieces may appear like artifacts of a past civilization, fossils from another planet, or the ornaments of fabled beings. »

« Life in Southern California, with its unreal sunsets, light-bleached buildings, and vestiges of 70s style, brought my memory to a saturation point, forming crystals of experience … These merged into objects with varying physical relationships to the body–at the scale of architecture, at the scale of jewelry, and in between. Utilizing the vocabulary of jewelry and architecture, space and place are explored–from the past to the present, from the personal to the cliché, from the obvious to the mysterious. »

« I have recently been displaced from living in a city, which has left an emptiness in my life. The creation of each piece has become a method to fill the void. The forms are architectural, modular, constructed from steel, becoming allegorical representations of the energy of a thriving, vibrant environment … As jewelry, the body completes the piece as people fill and give life to architectural spaces, expressing the vitality and connection I feel toward the urban human experience. »

« We seek out and delve into mirrors for clarifying affirmation but, in truth, are met with a foreign body … This perceived closeness of similarity and familiarity is a deception–fictitious shorthand we use in identifying within society and relationships. If the act of definition is a loss of information, is it possible to create a loss-less object? »

EXPO ‘Timothy McMahon: (un)earth’ – Beyond Fashion Gallery, Antwerp (BE) – 27 Oct.-3 Dec. 2011

Timothy McMahon: (un)earth

http://www.beyondfashion.be/expo_0.1/gr_expo_p36.jpg

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.”

«  »Spectrum » is an exhibition focused on contemporary jewelry inspired by color featuring Sally Collins, Timothy McMahon, Amy Tavern, and Melissa Tolar. These artists utilize a wide variety of formats, processes and materials, but are connected through the importance of color in their work. Color has played a dominant role in the Fine Arts for many generations, from the specific hues of paintings to the bold use of color in modern and contemporary sculpture. Until recently, color played a secondary role within the field of jewelry, limited to the addition of gemstones, patinas or enamels. With the freedom to break out of the traditional metalsmithing techniques and processes, color has become a force to be reckoned with. «
