LISA WALKER

“I research the differences between an acceptable notion of beauty or stereo-type, and something else – the search for an aesthetic that we hardly ever see, but nevertheless perhaps recognize. I don't want to make pieces that are easily steered through our established channels, I want people to be forced to work on new syllogisms, analogies and positions. I am continually pushing towards the extreme, and see this is a method which enables an expansion in thinking and ways of working.
I use a large range of materials and techniques.
I make reactionary work, consciously active with influences from all walks of culture and life. The pieces are often laced with references to contemporary jewellery of the last forty years, questioning and researching what jewellery means, what it can be.
I position my work around the history, future, and boundaries of jewellery. I make pieces for the future. Everything is food for art”.
