Three brooches which explore political sleight of hand. In politics the subject matter, for example housing, healthcare, wealth or education, is often presented in black and white terms, when in fact it is many shades of grey. Issues are given a political spin, which distracts from larger, complex situations and hidden agendas.
These were made in response to the Association for Contemporary Jewellery’s annual members exhibition, this year on the theme of ‘Sleight of Hand’. The exhibition of selected works will be touring to The Brewhouse, the Scottish Gallery and Plymouth College of Art Gallery between September and December 2015.
