 Outer Limits - Facere gal

Orbital by nature, jewelry art lives on the body. Jewelry art invites comment. Jewelry art says, « Howdy! ». It is with pleasure that Facèré Jewelry Art Gallery offers Outer Limits, an exhibition of jewelry art that is as playful as it is avant-garde. Each featured artist experiments with peripheries – pushing the boundaries of material, technique and form.

EXPO ‘Women Working Words’ – Facèré Gallery, Seattle (US) – 6-26 Fevr. 2013

Women Working Words

Wearable words. A celebration of the Literary and Jewelry Arts by 13 Women Artists.

In conjunction with the exhibition, Facèré owner Karen Lorene will be reading an excerpt from her new novel.
« A six-legged bear. Four-inch claws. A gurgling growl. Paul’s legs churn through molasses. A tree ahead. His hands reach. His fingers grasp. Tree bark peels like scabs. Below him bear paws slam the tree. Whup! Whup! Whup!
A branch overhead! Almost safe! His arms are like sludge, like cooked noodles, like Jell-O. His heart pounds. Claws scrape his heel, engulf his foot. The tree shakes and the bear yells in a hollow voice that echoes up into the mountains and over the valleys––echoes and echoes, “SHALL WE DANCE? SHALL WE DANCE? SHALL WE DANCE?”
Paul laughs at the joke until he looks down. He has no legs. He can’t dance. He can’t climb. He can’t move or wiggle or breathe. He can’t… even when his Mom’s voice calls, “You can do it! You can do it!” He can’t. »

Jill Baker Gower – ode grinçant à la « féminité »

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Gal. Facere (US),Jill BAKER GOWER (US),USA — bijoucontemporain @ 0:05

Masters of Fine Arts, Jewelry/Metals – MFA exhibition - 2006
(ASU- Arizona State University-School of Art)

au début ça commence « bien », « classique » je dirais … et puis, petit à petit, un humour grinçant s’immisce, et ça dégénère ……… et ça devient délectable ! :-)

« My work revolves around how women of today are influenced by society’s concept of “ideal beauty” as portrayed by the media.  Advertisements, commercials, stores, magazines, and television shows aim to make women believe that by using or wearing certain products they will come closer to “physical perfection”.  The jewelry and metalwork I create helps the wearer become closer to this ideal beauty, but also points to the humor in contemporary American society’s definition of perfection.  The objects I make often contain prosthetics or embellishments that can be applied to or worn on the body such as make-up or fingernails.  By turning make-up containers into wearable objects, the wearer is able to conveniently yet obsessively look in the mirror, reapply lipstick, blush, or powder numerous times in a day.  The burden of wearing such large or uncomfortable objects on one’s body parallels the onerous practice of reaching physical perfection.
 Certain people may be persuaded that in order to reach a particular status or to be accepted and considered beautiful by society, they need outrageous and at times physically painful surgeries, prosthetics, and injections.  Under select circumstances, sadly, this may be true.  Objects such as silver and gold teeth, fake eyelashes, and Botox compacts comment on these more invasive practices.  There are a multitude of contemporary advertisements for teeth veneers, eyelash enhancers, and facial injections that make people believe these prosthetics and procedures are vital life necessities.
Historically and currently, just as physical beauty can show or determine a person’s social status and power, so can jewelry.  Gold, jewels, and pearls can sometimes show a person’s wealth and status.  In order to signify that the pieces are valuable and precious, I use mediums such as silver, gold, pearls, and lustrous fabrics. By the use of these materials my pieces reference historical metalwork, specifically silver toiletry and make-up items.   Although my jewelry has humorous undertones and is not always practical and functional, it maintains its beauty and value, a quality that many women deem important in life. » (Jill Baker Gower)
