...If It Kills Me

 

It's the last day of 2010, and I'm trying to stay optimistic as the next year lumbers in.



I've been trying to make a go at this working artist thing since I finished my degree in 2008, and although I haven't figured out how to survive, I haven't failed yet either. For the record…

Bi-metallics be damned!

I've been trying to apply a decorative border to the "theatre" in which the Cold Genius will be a player. The border is a rolled strip of silver with a pattern on it and I've been trying to solder it to the edge of the lid.

 

Cold Genius 28

 

Of course, I've gone about this totally the wrong way, and have cut the lid before…

New in the Drawers Maria Militsi

An artist originally from Greece, now working in London Maria Militsi’s whimsical work has us enchanted at Gallery Loupe. A rose shaped jewelry box hides a ring of thorns. A silver cast interior of Barbie’s shoe, ala Cinderella. Mexican wrestlers grasp fine gold pendants, the interior a perfect match for their clenched fists. By materializing negative space, the absence of a missing part is prominent.



Caronline Broadhead sums up the duplicity of Maria’s work: "Maria creates a… Continue

The Curse of the Cold Genius!

Having decided to make a piece of work based on the idea of the spirit of winter being called upon to render the landscape frozen, I have been prevented from getting to my workshops by an unseasonable and enormous fall of snow!

Finally got back in on Friday and started making the main box which is the first pendant part of the piece. This will house the removable brooch and possible a second removable pendant. It looks like a bit of a mess at the moment, as it is made from…

New in the Drawers Noa Nadir

Israeli Artist Noa Nadir received her BFA from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Israel and has since been exhibiting in Israel and the USA. Gallery Loupe has a collection of her jewelry made from repurposed watch parts. In her words: “I guess I'm nostalgic…used and antique materials that time has made its mark on captivate me. The inner workings of clocks and watches carry a general time concept within as well as a visual acknowledgement that time passes. They impart a sense of history and… Continue

Pesky weather!

It's been snowing here. Nothing which would really cause even a comment in the US, Canada, Russia, any of the Scandinavian countries: about 30cm of snow and minimum temperature of around -15 degrees C. Of course, Scotland has ground to a halt. I can't even get into my workshops because the roads are blocked, public transport is all cancelled and while I could walk, the staff who open the building couldn't, it seems.


SO I am quietly going mad, using Rhino to work out…

It's The Final Count Down

In the eternal words of Europe, It's The Final Count Down... I've only got a few days left until my upcoming deadline of a photo shoot, and my studio is a mess as I try to get organized for the documentation. The picture is of the mourning necklaces that I've been working on spread out all over my work bench. Also, I'd like to point out that my grandmother made that work bench... pretty amazing!!! I've got three necklaces, two brooches, and four rings to finish by the end of the… Continue

Suzanne Klemm Opening Saturday 4th December 7-9pm

Please join us at Gallery Loupe this Saturday for the opening of Suzanne Klemm's "Frozen".



Susanne Klemm is moved to intervene in nature's endless rhythm of growth and decay and to add a touch of immortality to the happenings. She uses a fine plastic covering around objects such as fruit, twigs and flowers, freezing them in time and – paradoxically – thus bringing them to full bloom.…

Low-Residency MFA - Flexibility and Community
