MONET’S VIEW

By Michele White

The windswept trees in the foreground of Monet’s painting, The Church at Varengeville, were the inspiration for Michele White’s new work.

Hand-crafted in silver, each layer was carefully constructed to represent the church in the background, and trees in the foreground. The glorious autumn colours were created by pausing the process of oxidisation at different stages. Here, White fuses the ancient craft of jewellery-making with the fine art of painting, striving to capture of emotional response in her work through the careful selection of previous metal and gemstones.
