On The Surface24 Jul 2019 - 24 Aug 2019
The Scottish Gallery is delighted to present On the Surface by Jacqueline Ryan which is her first major presentation with The Gallery since the seminal exhibition Art Jewellery by Jacqueline Ryan and Giovanni Corvaja twenty years ago. Jacqueline has lived and worked in Italy since 1992 and has been based in Todi, in the Umbrian region of Italy since 2001. Her jewellery is an elegant fusion of English restraint combined with a sophisticated Italian language of structure, articulation and painterly colour. Jacqueline’s work is a homage to the natural world, a poetic combination of colour and form. Her flawless technique incorporates a lifelong study of enamelling and her goldsmithing has a timeless quality that speaks of ancient Etruscan jewellery. Her palette and inspiration is drawn from la dolce vita and the Umbrian landscape surrounding her. Beauty is an essential part of her jewellery making as is her innate understanding of the human form: meticulous models are created and coloured before the final work is made and when worn, her jewellery transforms the wearer.
Jacqueline Ryan has created a unique place in contemporary jewellery underpinned by her signature use of enamel and technical understanding of gold. Her work is represented at the most prestigious art fairs in the world and is sought by private collectors and public collections alike. We are delighted to present her work as part of the Edinburgh Art Festival 2019.
