A gallery in my bedroom.

I would like to introduce you to a project that I've been thinking about over the last few years, but have only been able to put into action in the last few months.  
I'm pretty excited. I hope you like it! 

PERSONAL SPACE PROJECT exists as an online gallery of documentation
 of a private gallery in the real world. Online 24 hours or in real life by appointment.
Located in my bedroom, in Canberra, Australia.

It’s amazing how much other work you can get done when you have an essay to write and a deadline to meet. On one such occasion a few months ago I decided to postpone writing my essay, I wasn’t getting anywhere on Modernism in Australia anyway, and started planning a gallery… located in my bedroom.  With a bit of productive procrastination, it seemed that now was as good a time as any to put a long thought about plan into action. Since I haven't the capital, the want or need to make this 'gallery' commercially viable, it made sense to use the space available to me, my bedroom, my personal space, to explore its limitations as well as its possibilities. I would invite other jewellers along for the ride. 
For me, being a contemporary art jeweller means that I deal in ideas. I make artwork that exploits common conceptions about traditional jewellery. I offer up humours comments in the form of jewellery, small scale artworks and occasionally the odd participatory project or performance. I want to make you think about why it is that you wear, give or desire jewellery. I want to make you think about everyday materials and how they have the ability to tell stories of their own. I also want to make you question how you view the world. Perhaps, after this experience you might find a renewed glint in your eye, a smile on your face and a beer in your hand, because sometimes life shouldn’t be so serious.

With that I welcome you into my personal space, I want to share with you some of the most exciting contemporary art jewellers and artists who deal in ideas and manifest their way of viewing the world into refreshing and remarkable objects, art works and projects. 

I hope you enjoy it.
