Current Exhibition EXTENDED to Sat 13th Sept !!
BAKED NOT FRIED: Now until Sat 13th Sept
Viva las fire!
Pieces of Eight Gallery’s current exhibition Baked Not Fried has been extended for one week only- a great opportunity to catch the exhibition if you have yet to view it!
Baked Not Fried showcases the work of several contemporary artists and jewellers who employ the technique of enamelling in inventive and fantastical ways.
From the delicate and shimmering to the humorous and poetic, Baked Not Fried reveals the diversity of enamel work being explored in both contemorary jewellery and object form. Each artist delivers exceptional work characterised by the expressive freedom found in their use of enamel. The exhibition debuts German jeweller, Tabea Reulecke and Austrian jeweller, Steffi Kalina showing their work for the first time in Australia, exhibiting alongside local enamellists Jane Millard, Jess Morrison, Katrina Tyler, Bridie Lunney, and Katherine Brunacci. Baked Not Fried exposes the shift in the way enamel is being used today - in its application as a surface and more importantly in its materiality. Look closely at the edges of the pieces and you will see the poetic subtleties of this delicate process - and what can only be planned by not planning.
A more detailed description of the exhibition, specific artist statements and bios are available on request or click here. I look forward to seeing you at the gallery to view our first exhibition dedicated to new directions in enamelling.
