Mondrian to the Abstract

SULA Gallery – February 2024

We were delighted to be involved with SULA Gallery’s first exhibition of the year. The gallery was filled with artworks inspired by the work of Piet Mondrian. Marking 80 years since the Dutch artist’s death.

Athene’s love of Mondrian’s work made this a perfect match. We created a new and unique pair of our recycled guitar plectrum waterfalls inspired by the shapes of Mondrian’s paintings. The earrings were then pinned through Athene’s abstracted self portrait painting on canvas. Using bold reds combined with our favourite french greys and spring greens – our own version of Mondrian’s restrained yet all encompassing primary colour palette.

Fox Art Competition – Friends that Leave

We are excited to show our submission for the FOX ART competition. We weren’t selected for the exhibition – but we love the piece anyway.

This piece is called Friends That Leave – a collage/mixed media/painting/performance piece involving collaged elements glued to a canvas, and then being forcibly removed.

Inspired by Guernsey and it’s population management policies – and the inevitability of losing friends as life moves and changes.

Guernsey Arts Open 2023 –  Paisley Fractal in Silver

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve been accepted for the Guernsey Arts Open Exhibition at the George Crossan Gallery which starts in October.

We’ve painted a 6ft long canvas and drawn intricate paisley and lace inspired spiral motifs. Once again a labour of love. Creating a pattern that looks like it could occur in nature with the elements of crafted human elements like lace. Embracing the ever intertwined relationships between our perception of design and nature.

Combining our some of our favourite things – spirals , patterns , super tiny details and metallic colours.

We’re thrilled to to have been selected for The Folksy Fringe! First we were included in the summer exhibition and then in it’s sister show.

Folksy HQ describe the show – “ When we were curating the Summer Exhibition we found we didn’t have space for everything we wanted to include, and so the idea of a Fringe was formed. We hope you love it as much as we do! “

If you missed the Edinburgh Fringe – you can visit Folksy instead.

Included were our bronze pearl waterfalls – the perfect complement to our gold ormer pendant which was featured in the main exhibition.

The metallic coin pearls in these earrings reflect a stunning range of colours which just look so stunning no matter the lighting. They are like tiny disco balls – an ode to our love of the genre.

This pendant just looks so stunning when worn.
