I'm really looking forward to all of these shows and in particular Fran Allison's, who taught me at MSVA and has been an extremely supportive mentor. Her work often has an underlying domestic or craft reference through either the materials or techniques that she utilizes. In hindsight, I can now see more clearly what a great inspiration her workings have been to my own. Below is Kevin Murray's 2010 overview of Allison's -the lei of another land;
Amelia Pascoe is a jeweler I am in awe of. A recent graduate of Whitireia with her A LURE OF THE ELUSIVE(2012), an extremely well executed body of work based on traps. The very tactile, mechanistic qualities, that I feel allude to something quite fetishistic, definitely allure me. Having met Pascoe at Jemposium in 2012 and what she was working on at he time, makes me look forward to seeing her new body of work in the flesh.
Be sure to also check out Whitireia's Jewellery Catalogues especially 'Speak' that features Pascoe.
