Please join us In the Gallery at Brooklyn Metal Works for an artist talk with Caroline Gore Friday Oct. 20, at 7pm.

Gore will be speaking in support of her current exhibition Dual/Duel now on view at The Gallery at Reinstein Ross.

This exhibition will mark the debut of Gore’s new series of wearable objects. This collection of new work will be accompanied by drawings and “collide” a sculptural installation from the acclaimed exhibition, …mercurial silence…

Strong, seductive, and feminine, the jewelry in Dual/Duel is inspired by Gore’s newly adopted city of Philadelphia. “The jewelry presented in Dual/Duel is a visual manifestation of this relationship to site in energetic and physical ways. Temporary attachments to buildings under renovation or construction, clusters and piles of building materials, layers of decay and attempted repair, electrical wiring/conduit and signals such as cones and buoys littering the landscape have informed my drawing and form development.”

At the heart of Gore’s work exists a tension or a “tug of war”, between materials and forms. Her visual language oscillates between what has been exposed and what remains unsaid, the hardness of jet and hematite and the softness of leather and suede. Her jewelry, according to Gore, “elicits an obstructed, coordinated or reflective view, one that momentarily shifts with the movement of the body and ultimately reveals a glimmering spark or connection.”
