Segment(s)
I am drawn to the individualistic relationship someone can have towards a piece of jewellery, the meaning and the visual impact when worn. The intimacy between the object and the wearer is lost when extended to the viewer but opens a visual dialogue between the three. The work is then subject to interpretation and despite the intention of the maker, and its connection to the wearer, a new meaning is created.
Through minimal forms, I have been working towards establishing a language that ultimately communicates the curiosity I share in the possibilities between material and technique, and my interest in the connection between wearable objects and the human form.
