Artist list

Maureen Faye-Chauhan
There are forces at play in the work of Maureen Faye-Chauhan, forces that seem sometimes to be in opposition, or that run on parallel tracks and meet only in the final wholeness of each piece. 
Refining her designs with computer aided design and bringing their flat-packed skeletons into being with laser cutting technology, Maureen’s jewellery begins life in the abstract.  It’s only once the bones are on her studio bench that the intensive handwork begins, as Maureen folds and welds each tiny, perfect join, every millimetre accounted for as the forms take three dimensional shape.  The twin precisions of technology and the hand run side by side, each playing a vital role in her method.
 As well, there are the parallel aesthetic forces of Indian and European art history.  Both are contiguous presences in Maureen’s life and both can be seen in the fine, robust graphics of her jewellery forms.  Finally there is her sophisticated handling of the forces of weight and space, of interior volumes and surface structure.  Each piece is a natural cohesion, each a satisfying whole.
