BEAUTY & MELANCHOLY


"I can barely conceive of a type of beauty in which there is no Melancholy." ~ Charles Baudelaire ~

My current work Melancholy Series poetically explores notions of beauty, nostalgia and passing time.

My jewellery questions how the creation of objects can guide or replace memory. As intimate objects, Melancholy Series alludes to forms found in nature, while deliberately abstracting them in order to de-familiarise the familiar. This latest collection embodies pathos, and evokes strong feelings of melancholy through an almost alien or foreign lens.

I respectfully acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, the traditional custodians of the land on which I create and exhibit art. I pay my respects to Elders past and present, as well as to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the wider Melbourne community and beyond. Indigenous sovereignty has never been ceded. I acknowledge that I work and live on country on which Members and Elders of The Wurundjeri people and their forebears have been custodians for many centuries and on which Aboriginal People have performed age-old ceremonies of celebration, initiation and renewal. I acknowledge their living culture and their unique role in the life of this region.
