Australian, b. 1966

Helen Britton describes her works as “collisions of design, Baroque, reduction resistant assemblages.” These so-called “assemblages” take their form differently, from necklaces to brooches, oftentimes made from repurposed materials—collected along riverbanks and seashores, or found in flea markets and heaps of junk. More recently, Britton has turned to using materials more traditionally intended for jewelry making. With strong interest in the history of decoration, Britton assembles her pieces from lived experiences, from world travels to mundane duties such as supermarket shopping. In constant dialogue with matter, form, and ideas, her practice is “accumulative, experimental and heterogeneous, faithful to life experiences,” as she describes.
