SATURATED COLOUR, BRUSHSTROKES IN JEWEL TONES
Arts and crafts have long been a part of Dee Barne's life, spending a number of years running her own craft gallery in Lincoln. Now Dee is concentrating on her own creative practice, creating large scale paintings in mixed medium. Her works are then deconstructed as she selects and slices out segments to be made into components of her colourful jewellery. Each piece is a vibrant wearable collage of form and shape to adorn the body in the saturated colour of jewel hues without the need for gemstones. The artists' brushstrokes are visible within the luminous tones resulting in truly wearable works of art.
