Timothy McMahon: (un)earth
Monday, Nov 14, 2011 @ 9:21 pm
A solo exhibition of recent work by Timothy McMahon (Fine Arts Jewelry'04) is currently on view at contemporary jewelry and product gallery Beyond Fashion in Antwerp, Beligum.
"The latest work by jeweler Timothy McMahon is presented under the title (un)earth, classifying the series of brooches and body objects in the realm of anti-rocks, frozen nonsensically at a point of fictional metamorphosis between raw ore and traditionally refined object. Symbolically these pieces seek to unearth the truth of material as buried by process, technique, and labor. Oversized and ornamental prongs compete with cut gems while both become engulfed by geological chunks of shattered enamel. The snake begins to eat its tail as these objects inch closer to a genuine desire to become the objects of their own origin."
Timothy, previously Jewelry Technician and Visiting Instructor in the Fine Arts department, left Pratt this past summer to attend the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
