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.”

Recognized internationally for a lifetime of contributions to the field of art jewelry, Thomas Gentille was the first American artist to be designated by the distinguished Munich-based annual art jewelry fair, Schmuck, a Modern Master (Klassiker der Moderne).
Gentille has continually invented new processes to manipulate a wide range of materials. Many of his explorations have been with materials rarely used for jewelry, including wood, aluminum, acrylic, new synthetic materials, and eggshell inlay. His work often juxtaposes unexpected combinations—such as pumice stone and pure pigment, silk thread and ebony, acrylic and model aircraft plywood—and is noted for its subtle colors, sophisticated surface treatments, and balanced compositions.

EXPO ‘Ten artists-Ten objects-2010′ – LOUPE Gallery Loupe, Montclair (New Jersey, USA) – 22 Juill.-19 Aout 2010

EXPO 'Ten artists-Ten objects-2010' - LOUPE Gallery Loupe, Montclair (New Jersey, USA) - 22 Juill.-19 Aout 2010 dans Colleen HEINEMAN (US) 37898_416590009322_260495754322_4283481_7212966_n

10-10-2010  is an exhibition that examines the creative process of  ten individuals. Each contributor has created ten discrete pieces in a body of work. The pieces are finished objects, though depending on the materials this allows for a wide range of interpretations on completion.

The idea for this exhibition developed out of a project often assigned at The State University of New York – New Paltz where the objective is for students to have a limited amount of time to create a concise, abridged body of work. The project becomes an exercise in stream of consciousness thinking, decision-making, material exploration and consideration, sketching, and model-making. The results are raw but thoughtful. By implementing limited parameters, the work reflects a fresh approach to a familiar medium. 10-10-2010 brings together ten graduates  from The State University of New York – New Paltz to examine their own making styles. The collection of participants represents the spectrum of working styles- from object makers to installation artists to jewelers. Each of these makers has continued their practice in object or jewelry making, and this exhibit gives them an opportunity to take a step back from their regular practice to participate in a process oriented, idea generating exercise.

Classé dans : Exposition/Exhibition,Gal. Loupe (US),Robin QUIGLEY (US),USA — bijoucontemporain @ 6:21

She received a Master of Fine Arts degree in Sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design.

« Narrowing the gap between valued possessions and discarded objects is the focus of Robin Quigley‘s latest series of work. REMAINS is an exploration of the unexpected effects that time can have on both the living and the inanimate objects that  surround us.  In this collection of one-of-a-kind pieces, the artist makes use of reclaimed materials including plastic, steel, rubber, wood, resin, glass – even animal bones.  It is through this diverse mix of media that Quigley creates her figurative tableaus and non-representational compositions. REMAINS is considered by the artist to be a natural outgrowth of her previous collection, which she called « FLASHBACK » – an investigation of memory and the passage of time. With REMAINS, Quigley shifts her focus to the present and contemplates what « remains », both literally and figuratively. »

EXPO ‘Noam Elyashiv: Drawings from Ireland’ – Gallery Loupe, USA – 6 Avril-6 mai 2010

Classé dans : Exposition/Exhibition,Gal. Loupe (US),Noam ELYASHIV (US),USA — bijoucontemporain @ 4:21

 Noam Elyashiv explores correlations and interactions between line, plane and volume through the composition of her form-related jewelry.

« For several years, I have spent the summer in Ballycastle — a small village in county Mayo, Ireland. While there, I take pictures, write and draw. I use color pencils: whites, greens, blues, yellows and reds. It is the beauty and the peacefulness of the place: the people, the air, the light, the structures and layout, which this work is derived from.  »
