This work explores the ambiguities of preciousness and the ways that value and worth could be experienced within the subtlety of the incidental.
The various functions of ornament were examined in order to identify its relationship to value, so that ornament as a signifier of preciousness could be discussed within a contemporary art context.
The transformation of banal materials into ornate temporary installations aimed to shift the value of the work from the concrete object to the fugitive realm of experience and to focus on the preciousness inherent in the everyday.
Our paintings are all 100% handmade.
