Kim Victoria Wearne
September 1 - October 11, 2015
Orogeny - the geological term for the structural deformation of the earth resulting in mountains - is a collection inspired by the wondrous natural environments Kim has experienced over her past year of travel. From the arid plains of Coober Pedy to the mountain peaks of Patagonia, imaginary fantastical landscapes merge to form a collection of roughly hewn, delicately embellished jewellery. Employing her signature carved forms, intricate engravings and opulent gemstone colour palette, 'Orogeny' merges the geological wonders observed on this journey with her internal emotional landscapes.
