Emma Price and David Neale
Gallery Funaki, Melbourne, Australia
opening night: Tuesday 10th August 6-8pm.
You are invited!
I'm looking forward to seeing Emma's beautiful necklaces, ( pictured above) they are simple and very subtly arranged... I'm calling the linear elements 'beads'- because they're strung square tubes - which are made of variously coloured metals.
As for my work, it will be only brooches this time- with a focus on colour combinations...
lots of muted tertiaries with some bright accents...
Stone dust mixed in too, mostly marble, but I've been playing with Lapis Lazuli and Turquoise as well... for that velvety, powdery texture, like on a butterfly or an old bone, or a Pompeiian fresco, you know?
If brooches arent for you...well, look out for new works from me; especially earrings and rings coming soon!
ps. sorry for the scanty posting here- I'm out of bandwidth 'til thursday...
