‘Bending to thought’ is the exhibition title of a new body of work by Melbourne jeweller Anna Varendorff on display until the 4th of June at Ari Jewellerylocated at1/760 Brunswick St New Farm, Queensland.
Anna Varendorff has created jewels that map out and frame the body. Her graphic pieces place lines atop the body, mapping areas of ornament.
Formed of silver and powder coated brass they cut a graphic line on the wearer reduced to the most basic lines of jewellery. Living and working from Brisbane until 2009, Anna now lives, works and is completing her Masters of Fine Arts at Monash University.
Having exhibited precious metalwork extensively in Australia and internationally, Anna's practice also includes publci artworks, private commissions and sculptural work. Exploring the active space between Fine Art and Fine Craft practices, Anna's Masters work emerges as both jewellery and installation.
