Unfold and Construct - Phoebe Porter.

13 February - 14 March 2015

 

Bilk Gallery is pleased to be opening the new year with an exhibition of new works by Canberra based Artist, Phoebe Porter, which for this series combines geometric abstraction, bold colour and unexpected asymmetry to create jewellery that resonates with influences of the Bauhaus and Russian Constructivism. 

 

Porter manipulates simple geometry such as the line, circle, triangle and square and a reduced palette of primary colours using her typically restrained approach. The contrast of light and heavy line weights used in Bauhaus graphic design is referenced in pieces where solid coloured components are assembled alongside parts made from very fine stainless steel wires. The work demonstrates Porter’s sophisticated use of structure and composition to create forms where each piece is reduced to its simplest expression, embodying the precision and clarity of form that characterises her jewellery to date.

 

 

Opening on Friday 13 February at 6:00pm
