Intro
My work has always been a blending of organic forms, with the intention of creating wearable objects that seem both familiar and uncanny.

Artist list

Jillian Moore
I’ve looked to both the zoological and botanical world for structures, systems, and patterns that I can repurpose and filter through abstraction. More recently I’ve been playing with implausibility, looking for colors and patterns that would help further eschew recognizability, and reveling in strangeness. At the same time, I’ve also been ruminating much more on transgression and how the natural world can sometimes defy easy reduction and categorization.
There is a direct link in my productivity and risk-taking in the studio to my rage, heightened anxiety, and rebellion against the rise of bigotry in the US. Coupled with the desire to amplify the ambiguity, peculiarity, and otherworldly qualities in my work, references to non-biological forms have become very interesting to me, and I find myself now exploring the alien territory. This current body of work that is becoming animal/vegetable/mineral is much more overtly about defiance, and in particular, taking the form of objects that are 
exhuberantly, confrontationally weird.

This exhibition is a part of Polyphonous 2019.
Professor Jivan Astfalck, Rachel Darbourne and Laura Bradshaw-Heap have created, in partnership with Gabi Green, Polyphonous 2019, a hub of pop-up exhibitions for Munich Jewellery Week.
Studio Gabi Green has been a regular platform for the work of the team since 2012. Previous exhibitions include Suspend.ed, Suspend.ed in Pink, Subterranea and an iteration of JUNK: rubbish to gold. The gallery was the sole venue participating in MJW in the West End of Munich, Polyphonous was established in 2018 to create a hub of activity and encourage visitors.  
Gabi Green spent the summer of 2017 canvassing local businesses in the area to find suitable venues for the team to offer to other jewellery artists. Polyphonous debuted in 2018 as six exhibitions for international jewellery artists and the 2017 cohort from the MA in Jewellery, Silversmithing and Related Products from the School of Jewellery at Birmingham City University.
2018 was a huge success with new local businesses and artists actively seeking to participate in the future. Polyphonous 2019 promises to be even bigger and better with eight venues showing the work of sixteen international artists from the UK, Europe and the US plus a showcase of work from the 2018 cohort of the MA at BCU.
Professor Jivan Astfalck and Rachel Darbourne, both educators, have been generously supported in this activity by their academic institutions the School of Jewellery, Birmingham City University and Plymouth College of Art respectively.
