Artist's Statement

I am a person of contradictions. My work expresses the internal dialogue I have with myself. I use many materials....paperclay, wire, silk organza, human hair, feathers, gut, paint which is applied, layered, sanded, layered again.
Fractured Angelics is the desire to covet objects, fetishes and such. I must have that! I think about it over and over in my head till I get it. But there is an opposing side that seeks emptiness, space, quiet, pure elegance, simple but powerful form. Sculpting puts me in that space. The human form must stand alone and be authentic.
The Angelic Collection has been my passion for the past 4 years. Are they relics or fetishes? I have always reached spiritual enlightenment through my addictions and compulsions. To have more of everything and to have nothing. This has been my most personal work thus far.

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!

Arriving at this message is the goal of this traveling exhibition opening at the SNAG conference in Boston 2015, Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco, CA - Aug 19 - Sept 20, 2015, Equinox Gallery, San Antonio, TX - Oct 16 - Nov 15, 2015, Baltimore Jewelry Center, Baltimore, MD - Dec 11, 2015 - Jan 08, 2016, Brooklyn Metal Works, Brooklyn, NY - Feb 5 - Mar 4, 2016.

DETAILS on exhibition premise, call for artists, submission guidelines.....

Rachel and Brigitte will be appearing on the wonderful Jay Whaley Metalsmith Benchtalk Radio Show, talking about the Co:Operation Garnish project, how they came up with the idea, what the project is about and the plans moving forward.
