Intro
Silver Scenes is the current series of work depicting moments in nature as portraits of transience.

Artist list

Mielle Harvey
Throughout my work, I am continually exploring the theme of ‘momento mori’, to create narratives about our relationship to nature and impermanence. The “timelessness” of jewelry, and permanence of metalwork in particular, makes it an interesting medium for exploring ideas around mortality. I see my jewelry as a visual elegy, through which I pay homage to preciousness that we often overlook, found in this endless flux of growth and decay.  By depicting transience and vulnerability, I try to evoke a sense of empathy, and enliven how we see the world around us.
 
The ‘Moments of Sky’ Exhibition at Jewelers’werk Galerie, presents work from my current series called, ‘Silver Scenes’. I chose the title as a nostalgic reference to the “silver screen”. Like film stills, each piece is like a window that captures and preserves a glimpse of an ephemeral moment.
 
The ‘Silver Scenes’ depict moments in nature as portraits of transience. Using personal observation, printmaking, portraiture, and black and white photography as a reference, I create these pieces by painting and drawing directly into thin pieces of silver sheet. For me, this series is an exciting synthesis of my interests, as drawing and painting have always been a vital, but less public part of my practice.
