Blanche Tilden + Marcus Sholz: Colour Shift
This exhibition of new jewellery by Blanche Tilden captures a colour shift - an exciting departure from monochrome to colour that collaboratively explores links between jewellery, photography, architecture, and the body.
A series of accidental and deliberate multiple exposure film photographs, taken by Marcus Scholz while walking around the streets of Melbourne are saturated with colour and distorted architectural detail. Setting Blanche on a path of abstraction and translation, these unique photographs are used as starting points for a suite of necklaces made with combinations of coloured and clear borosilicate glass, anodised titanium, and silver.
While Tilden’s signature themes of transparency, connection, and movement are still apparent, new forms and colour combinations take her established visual language into unexplored territory, creating moments of stillness and calm that emerge from the layered chaos of everyday urban life.
