Intro
Colour is a powerful force in our everyday lives; it can change our minds, convey messages, and shift mood. Colour can attract and repulse, express or suppress, and is in every way integral to the human experience. When we wear colour, it is not only a form of self-expression, but a means to connect with the world around us.

Artist list

Korinna Azreiq, Amy Bond, Mary Lynn Podiluk, Magali Thibault Gobeil
In Colour brings together four Canadian contemporary jewellery artists in a fresh and playful exhibition celebrating the vibrant possibilities that emerge when combining precious and alternative materials. Each artist has a unique relationship with form, manipulating their chosen medium into lively wearable artworks in every hue.


About artists:

Korinna Azreiq Toronto, ON.
3D-printed nylon, precious & non-precious metals, gemstones.
Korinna’s collection consists of voluminous eye pleasing objects: bold statements that complement the character of the wearer. If shape is the product of her mind, colour undoubtedly comes from her heart. Hand-dying each 3D printed nylon piece is the last stage in her making process, spontaneous and unpredictable.

Amy Bond Toronto, ON.
Glass, sterling silver, wood, silk, ceramic, bone, gemstones.
In Amy’s private Toronto studio, she plays with fire and colour. Working in traditional methods with a non-conformist approach to jewellery design, Amy’s greatest inspiration is her unabashed love of colour. An irreverent sense of humour is apparent in her detailed craftsmanship, honed through decades of experience.

Magali Thibault Gobeil Montréal, QC.
Acrylic, sterling silver.
Excess, joy, freedom; this is what defines Magali's creative process. A tireless artist, she creates pieces characterized by their round and sinuous shapes, bright colours and exuberant style. Her works are appealing to touch and reveal distinct materiality. Bright, soft or rigid, they emerge instinctively, often reminiscent of candy or splashes.

Mary Lynn Podiluk Saskatoon, SK.
Resin, sterling silver, polyester & viscose thread, pearls.
Mary Lynn creates conceptual jewellery that is sensual and graceful. Elements of surprise are introduced in the pieces she creates, their presence inviting the viewer to investigate the work closely. Appealing colour and texture catch the eye, but expectations are challenged upon closer inspection as details reveal themselves.
