Artist list

Gemma Draper
The jewellery by Gemma Draper is characterized by an artistic and philosophical approach. Her pieces can be seen as sculptural objects that invites dialogue and interpretation. By experimenting with material- and colour combinations she creates composite structures through poetic and abstract shapes. Lake Fortitude is a speculative work, where Gemma Draper explores doubt, opportunities, acceptance and escapism.

"When we try to answer the eternal question of what we want -and only have we become who we are because we have desired-, traditionally we have two forms of escapism. We can flee to the doubt about what we want, or we can escape that doubt. These two forms of doubt, these two shelters, coexist in all of us and it is not always so easy to separate them. And while they can never be found in their purest forms, our way of life makes it clear that we tend to be escape artists of one or other kind." Adam Phillips "Houdini's Box"
