Devils and Their Friends by Helen Britton

09 Jun -  24 Jul 2015 at Sienna Patti – Lenox, USA

The newest collection of rings by Helen Britton, « Devils and Their Friends », are now in exhibition at Sienna Patti. The pieces have roots in her long time fascination with popular culture and its everyday remains and are exclusive to the gallery.

Devils and Their Friends by Helen Britton Exhibition  /  09 Jun 2015  -  24 Jul 2015 at Sienna Patti - Lenox, USAHelen Britton - Ring: Dough Devil, 2015 – Gold, diamonds

« Devils and Their Friends
If I think about when this work started, then of course I quickly land in the forests of Thüringen and the first of the Devil ring series in 2007. But then that work really stared with visits to that region in 2001. Recently I unearthed a stack of drawings from my late teen and early twenties: wild pigs, black dogs, old cars and headless horsemen. Clearly the things that attracted me to the Forest were not something new.
There was always a dark side, an interest in spooky things, and the obsession with Ghost trains is now common knowledge. But they were also comical, harmless and popular things, things that made their appearances not only at fairgrounds, but also in cartoons on TV or in the jewellery that rolled out of the trinket automat at the supermarket. Popular culture and the everyday remains the baseline in much of my work.
The characters in this series inhabit an imaginary world that has its roots in the Forest [1] work, Unheimlich[2] and these early drawings. Smooth Devil, Stone Devil, Wood Devil, Dough Devil, Fire Devil, Eel, Water Sprite, Millipede, Swine and Old Tree. These characters have broken through to the surface of this deep old river of preoccupation, crept out of their dank and mossy worlds and I have captured their likeness before they slip back under the surface and head on their merry way. » - Helen Britton, 2015.

Life in Southern California, with it’s unreal-real sunsets, the faded colors of light-bleached buildings, and the vestiges of seventies SoCal lifestyle in all it’s cliched glory, brought my foggy memory to a saturation point, forming crystals of an experience known and unknown to me. This California “dream” condensed into symbols of deeper meaning —tacky images of palm trees and sunsets, mid-century modern architectural screens, men’s striped velour sweaters, and phallic vessels. These symbols coalesced into objects with varying physical relationships to the body —some at the scale of architecture, some at the scale of jewelry, some in between. These degrees of magnification describe levels of intimacy and highlight the similarities between how architecture and jewelry operate. Both contain more than just the body.”

EXPO ‘Stonecutting’ – Gallery Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco (USA) – 1er-31 Mai 2015

 San Francisco’s VELVET DA VINCI is proud to present Stonecutting, an exhibition of work by New Zealand artists Craig McIntosh + Joe Sheehan
Opening reception with the artists will take place on Friday, May 1, from 6-8 pm.

 StoneCutting - Velvet da Vinci

 

Craig McIntosh’s most recent series of brooches are hand carved and fabricated from Pakohe (argillite), a material rich with metaphor for New Zealand’s cultural and natural landscape. A highly indurated sedimentary rock, hardened through intense compression and heat, Pakohe is often described as “basement rock,” as it literally represents the material New Zealand is built from and upon. Calling to mind visions of topographical maps and aerial nature photographs, McIntosh’s process channels the aesthetic and symbolic implications of his material, resulting in fractured, layered, and laminated compositions. According to the artist:
“The brooches… are abstract forms arrived at through the making process, and the associations with landscape and boundary are the result of thinking through making. When I’m working with stone I take the perspective that I am in some way are some way working with land, or can be seen as working with place, or even working possibly with here…. Landscape is a human construct, it is the way we see and interpret the physical environment. The division and breaking up of land into the idea of a system of human made spaces has shaped our environment. So for me it is therefore critical, when using stone in a contemporary jewelry context to have an understanding of both identity and boundary, jewelry can not be made concerning anything else until this is considered.”
McIntosh earned a Bachelors of Visual Arts and Masters Degree from the Dunedin School for Art. His works have exhibited in Japan, New Zealand, and Germany. Highlighted shows include WUNDERRUMA, a touring exhibition that debuted at the 2014 Schmuck conference. The artist presently lives and works in Dunedin.

Joe Sheehan’s series The Quick and the Dead is a collection of remote controls meticulously carved from stone.   Presented as artifacts in the style of classic typological museum display, the work takes the form of whole units and broken pieces, calling to mind futuristic archaeological documentations of contemporary culture. Arranged by similarity and type, the series poses questions about contemporary methods in museum studies, addressing notions of preservation and historiography from a global perspective. Working with New Zealand native stones such as greywacke, basalt, and argillite, Sheehan shines a light on the heavy historic symbolism of each material from a South Pacific cultural context, referencing prominent museum collections of Toki: stone adzes made by Maori and other Polynesian cultures.

Jane D’Arensbourg – Glass Jewelry / Lighting
+  Amy Ruppel – Monoprints / Paintings

Opening / Artist Reception:  Saturday March 28,  5-8pm

 Illume - Jane D'Arensbourg - Glass Jewelry

 

Shibumi Gallery is pleased to announce, Illume, a joint show with jeweler / sculptor Jane D’Arensbourg and printmaker Amy Ruppel.
Illume is an investigation into cast light, shadows and the creations of patterns and forms.

Jane D’Arensbourg uses glass as a vehicle to capture light, energy and a sense of fragility with her work.  She views her jewelry and lighting as functional art.
« There is a time in the day in my studio when the sun pours in and everything comes to life as sunlight slowly travels around my studio, casting beams of light through all of the glass sculptures, jewelry, lighting, and experiments. Light vibrates through the skeletal facets, corners and open planes. The shadows cast on surfaces is this energy broken up into patterns which can be used as a vehicle for meditation by the viewer. »
D’Arensbourg studied glass art at California College of Arts and Crafts as well as the Pilchuck School of Glass.  After working more sculpturally, she began making jewelry in 2001.
She currently lives and works in New York City.
