Making Dust

Warwick Freeman,

May 1 to 26, 2012

Warwick Freeman’s latest exhibition explores form, material and the quiet profundity of the everyday object. The rear wall of the gallery features Freeman’s new installation, ‘Dust’, a kind of documentary record featuring the residual dust of sixty materials that the artist has used in his jewellery making, mounted on boards and offering a graphic palette of Freeman’s practice. His jewellery pieces; carved, found or both, are imbued with the directness, honesty and talismanic power that are the hallmarks of his artistic vision.
