Jewelry For The Wall

Categories: Art + Graphics

I love the use of metal and how the surface can reflect light and also absorb patinas.  Metal’s surface change through applying heat and scratching the surface.

Rebecca Gouldson uses etching techniques more traditionally used by printmakers, of the UK  creating Metal Wall Pieces with richly decorated surfaces; ‘drawing’ into and onto the surface of metal.  Her passion of drawing and printmaking is directly related to the marks made on the metal. Some imagery is taken from her photographs of buildings, which she then first draws with ink on paper. The surfaces are created by stamping, rolling, scribing and plating the metal, as well as using various etching techniques and patinas. All these processes produce distinct qualities of line and texture and are combined with an instinctive approach to working with metal.

Panels usually are about 10 x 10 inches and are individually rendered or made as part of a larger installation.

The textures are rich with tones of gold,  pewter, browns, blues and greens with blacks.  These are pieces of jewelry hanging on the wall rather than on one’s wrist.

Have an infinitely modern day!
