'Peoples + Brand' is an exhibition of solo bodies of work by myself and Zoe Brand at Bilk Gallery, Canberra. Through our individual bodies of work we investigate what drives the desire to wear and own jewelry, and how can that be brought to light. We explore these similar questions and concepts from completely different angles. In this way I think of both of our pieces as 'conversation starters' across a number of registers, namely with the viewers and potential wearers who take the objects with them, sometimes none too subtlety, whether there is a suggestion or the form or the objects literally spells it our for you. I enjoy the way our work compliments one another. It makes the conversations between our pieces exciting and this dialogue pushes these concepts open for a broader discussion.
