Artist list

Karla Way
Taking inspiration from Darwin’s research on the Origins of Species, we travel to a primeval archipelago to contemplate theories of evolution, variation and diversity.

Referencing the three Linnaean Kingdoms of animal, vegetable and mineral, jeweller Karla Way evokes rough forms, rocky textures, seed-like scaled and furry entities. All three exist in isolation, yet as they island hop and jump ship, new interactions take place and adaptations occur. New species emerge.

Way’s maiden voyage of precious pieces brings together her interest in natural history and anciently revered precious metals and gems. Evolutions reflects her ideas of connection and transformations and these moments of union and growth are captured tangibly, in time.

Karla Way is represented by Pieces of Eight Gallery.
