The celebration of artistry and creativity is as ingrained in the culture of Québec as it is a calling card for New York City.  It was thus inevitable that such a shared principle would lead to the upcoming exhibition, “Innovation and Craftsmanship in Metal:  Jewelry Artists of Québec”, opening at Aaron Faber Gallery, 666 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY on Thursday, May 3, 2012.  Ongoing through May 26, 2012, the exhibition will feature fourteen of Québec’s most talented jewelry artists, and their extraordinary maneuverings in precious and semi-precious metals and stones.  Debuting in its first year at Aaron Faber Gallery, Jewelry Artists of Québec offers both trade and consumers a glimpse of  highly original works of jewelry artistry using precious and semi-precious stones and metals.  The fourteen participating Québecois artists have audaciously redefined conventional approaches to jewelry design, with each artist’s viewpoint quite distinctly their own.

While Claudio Pino’s kinetic movement rings are painstakingly designed to do more than just adorn a finger, Matthieu Cheminee bestows young, fresh life to old, discarded jewelry in a recycled kaleidoscope of sculptural virtuosity.

As Janis Kerman entices us to see the beauty in opposites and asymmetrical balance, Laurie Dansereau invites us to become one with nature as her floral necklaces garnish décolletages in a splendor of anthers and petals in sterling silver and exotic woods.

And as Jean-Pierre Gauvreau’s rings capture the grand pursuits of the most genius architects, Pierre-Yves Paquette uses the ancient art of mokume gane to harmonize various hues of gold and silver into a visually stunning crescendo.

EXPO ‘Working in METAL : three women’, Aaron Faber gallery, New-York (USA) – 18 mars-19 avril 2010

‘Working in METAL : three women’

EXPO Aaron Gallery - 3women

The exhibition features the work of Glenda Arentzen, Sydney Lynch and So Young Park, different generations of jewelry artists with similar interests in working directly in sterling silver and gold. Exhibition opens March 18 at Aaron Faber Gallery, New York, and moves on April 15th to the Park Avenue Armory where the artists will present their work.

Glenda Arentzen, whose work is in the Museum of Art and Design permanent collection, celebrates more than forty years working by hand as a jewelry artist. Her silver and gold highly textured works are sculptural with an appeal that derives in part from their tactile qualities.

Sydney Lynch (affiche), favors bi-metal, a gold-and-silver sheet metal that allows her to create works that play with both metals. She incorporates gemstones, often rough or cabochon, that are colorful rather than precious.

 So Young Park, the most junior of the artists, writes in the third person about her work : « So Young Park’s concept is that of nativity ; where her work is not created but born through her diligent creativity of forming metal. Human and plant life have similar growth and life characteristics. Creation of life requires much patience and suffering. She appreciates being involved in the process to experience the power of miracles, even if it requires the endurance to give a life to her jewelry. Her jewelry pieces express desire, hope, and the power of life through organic plant forms and sea lives that are artistically rendered in a simplistic, geometric, and sophisticated manner.
Expressing the emotions she has towards nativity through using the assembling wires, tiny concave disc, hammered textures, and hand engraving patterns symbolize the origins of life and each elements represent the single cells that makeup all life.
So Young Park usually works on sterling silver and 18k yellow gold with pearls and stones to create beautiful jewelry. She uses a patina with silver to add beautiful colors to the surface. She also brings oxidized silver and gold together to express a beautiful contrast of these cherished materials.
