Intro
The results of this clearly resolved thinking are right there in every detail of her graduation portfolio, shown below. These works are not only new for Zoe personally, but in many ways they stand alone within the realm of new jewellery. Needless to say, we look forward to see what Zoe Brand does next. / Simon Cottrell

Its not often that we come across a student who arrives at university, already having local notoriety within their field. Zoe was already making interesting work before she arrived at ANU in 2013 to begin her Bachelor of Visual Arts with us. Through close analysis of her contemporaries and a high responsiveness to critical feedback, Zoe has decisively sharpened the focus of her aims and intentions, resulting in works that are both astute and highly articulate. Her approach is a clear example of how important it is for a student (or professional artist) to be fully aware of the cultural context in which they stand, to better enable truly distinctive steps forward. The results of this clearly resolved thinking are right there in every detail of her graduation portfolio, shown below. These works are not only new for Zoe personally, but in many ways they stand alone within the realm of new jewellery.

Zoe Brand
I make jewellery that uses jewellery archetypes, ready mades and text to explore the performative nature of jewellery as a device for communication. I am concerned with finding language that can describe both the object or the idea of the object, as well as the person who might wear the piece. This body of work draws from readymade forms, more specifically from the plethora of signs and ephemera that are associated with commercial or retail situations and explores the way in which we negotiate commerce and transaction in these environments./ Zoe Brand
