Staring : in HINDSIGHT at Die Neue Sammlung / The International Design Museum

March 15, 2014 to March 20, 2014
  Staring in HINDSIGHT : the State University of New York at New Paltz Designed in response to the physical space that houses the exhibition,Staring in HINDSIGHT, is an exercise in searching, finding, seeing and knowing. Hindsight is a locator, a liminal state in which we consider the past as we look toward the future. It is a site of contemplation, of longing, and of learning. This notion of occupying the margin of past and future is akin to the creative strategies taught at New…See More

Statement of Interest

I am interested in material and source, and meaning rooted in the connections between them. I investigate how materials collect their identity, beginning with geographic origins, through cultural connections and histories, ending with the objects they become. By traveling to physically gather material and information myself I create a personal connection to the source and attempt to render that bond. I account for the journey from source to viewer, acting as a liaison, intent on bringing the two worlds closer to one another. As a result of thorough research I become expert and the work becomes a vessel for discovery, communication and understanding. Through this act I hope to discover how my role as a connector of material and histories affects the form of the object and the formulation of the role of the viewer. The work’s ultimate goal is to inspire the viewer to consider a complex network of historical, economic, and geopolitical forces that bring an object into existence. Thus I intentionally collapse the notion that art or any designed object can emerge from an insular creative bubble, untouched by history, culture and economy. The specific use of material is dictated by my own inability to express what the material can express with authority. As a maker, I cannot create what the material holds within it, thus I borrow the power of material to communicate. In turn, as a maker I release a form of the materials own agency that it cannot release itself. This is a cooperative act.

OMG, no YOU didn't feed me bitterballen every time, but when we went out, I snagged some every time, remember at Arnhem, I practically took the platter from the server, she was being stingy any how!

DUTCH CROSSING - Dutch Design Week - EINDHOVEN - Part EEN - DAE

Posted on October 31, 2011 at 12:30pm 4 Comments

Eindhoven is the fifth largest city in the Netherlands.

More recently it has become the capital of Dutchie (industrial) design. This has mostly to do with the success of the Design Academy which has attracted professionals from the field including…

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!
