DESCRIPTION

The exhibition is curated by Lauren Simeoni and Melinda Young. Ten participating artists constructed natural and organic forms from man-made material to create jewelry that is unnatural, naturally. unnatural Acts is an exhibition that began as a project among friends and has since traveled through Australia and New Zealand. Velvet da Vinci is the only US venue for this project. Exhibition catalog available.

Participating artists:
Anna Davern, Caz Guiney, Kath Inglis, Bridget Kennedy, Peta Kruger, Sim Luttin, Natalia Milosz-Piekarska, Lauren Simeoni, Mark Vaarwerk, Melinda Young

Contemporary Australian jewelers Lauren Simeoni and Melinda Young work with found materials alongside traditional techniques in their work – they have a keen interest in both the subversion of the natural and the role the deconstruction/reconstruction of the found object plays in the development of concept, visual language and narrative.
