artist statement:

De-Phile

Jewellery hand made process is at once a physical engagement with material, and at the same time a temporal act brimming with nuance and symbolism.  This work investigates re-citing jewellery process, specifically filing or sanding.  Almost every act of jewellery making is punctuated with filing or sanding. Cut, file, sand, solder, pickle, sand,

It is a process of wearing away, removing, coercing, it is multiple and recurrent.

This work was bourn out of a jeweller’s perspective and inspired by a text by Fabio Morábito.

 

"A file works by persuasion; it reduces the force of assault instead of intensifying it.  In place of one strong jab, it resorts to a host of weak prods, one after the other, which attack in an orderly fashion like an army of ants, with more monotony than passion".
Morábito, Fabio, Toolbox, Bloomsbury Publishing, London, 1999
