Minqi Gu Sterling Silver & Enamel Earrings #2
Formally trained in Architecture, Minqi Gu's interest lies in a diverse range of form and material. From the found/recycled, to clay, to silver. The artist believes believes in experimenting with the common and the precious. By mixing materials, new conversations are achieved. Conceptually the Artists embraces explorations of cultural differences, home life, consumerism and health. Bold and deliberate in colour, simple and suggestive in forma and saturated in materiality. The objects bring a tryst to the individual idea and a light-hearted engagement with form and composition.
Her work defies definition, appearing inconsistent in style and technique. The results are open-ended indefinable and wearable.
