I’m so tired, but I love you. 2019
E.G. Etal Gallery / Melbourne / July 24th – August 10th 2019
This wide-ranging series of kindred works was made during the artist’s first
year as a father.
Utilising found objects from both his own childhood and his son’s, Bowyer
intersplices wood, rubber, plastic and steel with his more
traditional palette of bronze, silver, gold, gems and pearls.
The resulting jewellery pieces are playful, colourful, yet deeply personal.
Interconnected with fragments of his own childhood memories, Welfe
presents a wonderland of intriguing and wearable objects that speak to our
intuitive desire to re-connect with our inner child.
Presented as part of Craft Cubed.
