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.
