RE:WORK Sculpture and Accessory by Emily Bixler | Art Jewelry Forum

RE:WORK Sculpture and Accessory by Emily Bixler | Art Jewelry Forum | make it...love it | Scoop.it
Gallery Lulo in Healdsburg, California, is a collaborative effort between artist Karen Gilbert and Anne-Katherine Schjerbeck. Their gallery has grown in the past three years, and recently they opened an additional space. This month’s show Re:Work Sculpture and Accessory is the first one in the new space and features the dexterous artist Emily Bixler. It has been interesting to observe the blurring of the lines between disciplines in contemporary jewelry, and this show is an excellent example of it. Susan Cummins: Your work is a blur of sculpture, craft, fiber, and jewelry. Would you explain your educational background? Emily Bixler: I entered Pacific Northwest College of Art (Portland, Oregon) as a painter but quickly shifted focus after my first welding class. Form and the placement of objects in space mesmerized me. I started experimenting with installation and the way an entire room creates a composition. Sculpture opened up a whole world of materials and textures as well. The school I attended did not have a proper fiber department, however, so I would lug my sewing machine around with me to class. Post college I had several jobs that I sought out as opportunities to explore methods of craft—working in the knitwear industry, as a milliner’s assistant, seamstress, and jewelry designer.
Lenni Morkel-Kingsbury's insight:
An insight into Emily Bixler's work...Described in this article as " a blur of sculpture, craft, fiber, and jewelry." Love this combination of skill and genres.

Emily says

"The school I attended did not have a proper fiber department, however, so I would lug my sewing machine around with me to class. "

I can relate to that. Monash University Fine/Visual arts (Melbourne, Australia) used to have a textile/fiber tapestry stream but got rid of that just as I started my degree. Mind you they have also closed ceramics and glass studios so all left with is essentially Painting, Photography and Sculpture. Sad really.

Lenni Morkel-Kingsbury's insight:
some works in this collaborative project resonate with me especially the materials used and the themes- lost and found, forgotten, the ephemeral. conventions of composition are  adhered to but materiality pushes beyond precious jewellery materials and focuses on the concept and the proposition of forgetting. If you need to apply labels I guess the label art jewellery is appropriate. This is the realm where design and art intersect and the object transcends adornment and steps into the domain of narrative, memory and identity.
