Artist list

Arthur Hash

On May 5th, Quirk Gallery presents "Instance" the work of Arthur Hash. Hash, a jeweler and sculptor, explores the idea of contrast by combining Traditional shapes with materials such as found objects, plastics, and foams. His most recent work involves a process of rapid prototyping, printing three-dimensionally with a computer and 3D modeling software. Each piece is unique in its material, design, and strong graphic form, uniting under the notion of wearable art.

A wall installation will display precisely cut metal silhouettes that Hash has turned into brooches. Each piece freezes a simple gesture, a stance, a moment of human activity with extraordinary detail. This technique infuses the adornment of jewelry with a stark immediacy and surprising warmth. The effect is of a faceless surface suddenly teeming with life, one frame at time.


About the artist:
Born in 1976, in Balboa, Panama, Arthur Hash is already accomplished as an artist. He has won several awards, been included in exhibitions all over the country, and has studied and traveled all over the world. He completed his MFA in 2005 at Indiana University, and received his BFA in 2001 from Virginia Commonwealth University. He now returns to VCU as associate professor in sculpture and extended media and adjunct professor in Crafts.
His work comes from a commitment to participate in the contemporary exploration of what jewelry is and can be, while retaining the sense of elegance and beauty found in the long tradition of bodily adornment.
