Three individual artists pushing the borders of conventional jewellery: Mary Lynn Podiluk, Jenny-Lyn Fife and Joan Thomson. Experimenting, discovering and creating art in the form of unique, contemporary jewellery. Curated by award-winning metal artist Tom Ferrero.
The group uses three elements — colour, natural forms, and contrasts — to explore the concept of “Triad.” Jenny-Lyn Fife’s jewellery is architectural and organic, incorporating unique combinations of textile and metal. Mary Lynn Podiluk fuses resin and precious metals, creating evocative shapes. Joan Thomson connects personal memories to the wearer, creating works in silver and gold.
Visitors to the SCC Gallery will see jewellery in a new context. “[We’ve] come together to [talk] about contemporary art jewellery as a viable and imaginative means of artistic expression… With this work we have pushed ourselves to break some of the conventional boundaries that jewellery is commonly known for.”
Fife, Podiluk, and Thomson have been supported by the Independent Artist Program of the Saskatchewan Arts Board. The grant has enabled these exceptional jewellery artists to experiment with new ideas and materials as each looks to expand her art practice.
