Most people travel at the same time and the same route to and from work everyday. If you’re like Melbourne based jeweller, Mel Miller, you might start to notice how places along your journey, maybe a church, a house or a park, start to look different not only in the changing light of the day but also through the changing seasons.
Local Colour, Miller’s first solo show at Studio 20/17 in Sydney, and will showcase brooches, neckpieces, rings and objects depicting abstracted interpretations of streetscapes, parks, buildings and details of the urban landscape that she passes in her daily commute.
Miller says ‘...knowing these familiar places in different lights reveals their picturesque peculiarities.’
Miler’s work is often informed by the paintings of J M W Turner, the Impressionist concern for colour and the transient effects of light. The works in this show represent a unique combination of contemporary and traditional materials and techniques, juxtaposing the luminous textures of bouncy balls and enamelled surfaces, the sheen of formed and fabricated precious metals, and the subtle colour variations in repeated fibrous felted wool forms.
