BIO

 BIOGRAPHY

 

        

Melody Armstrong graduated from the Alberta College of Art and Design with Distinction, majoring in Jewellery and Metal in 1999. Working with traditional and non- traditional metals, enamels and stones, Melody’s style is best described as Industrial-Organic. Her design philosophy of organic infused with industrial is demonstrated through a mix of natural shapes and geometric structures, with great attention to detail and quality of workmanship.  Melody Armstrong maintains a professional studio and is the Jewellery Instructor and Resident Artist at the Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Centre.

 

            Melody Armstrong is represented by Mata Gallery at 106, 2300 Broad Street, Regina, Saskatchewan.  Mata Gallery showcases a wide selection of Melody’s Jewellery and will accommodate custom jewellery designs.

 

            Melody Armstrong’s recent accomplishments include exhibiting a solo jewellery exhibition “Contemporary Jewellery by Melody Armstrong” at the Affinity Gallery, being selected as part of the Dimensions 2015 touring exhibition, receiving an Independent Artists Grant from the Saskatchewan Arts Board, and authoring articles published in Art Jewelry Magazine.

 

         Melody Armstrong's other accomplishments include having two pieces selected for “Dimensions 2011” exhibition, and receiving the Merit Award; being selected for “Prairie Excellence: The Today and Tomorrow of Prairie Craft” exhibition; being published in "Art Jewelry Today 2" by Schiffer Books, "Art Jewelry Today 3" by Schiffer Books, "Anodized!" by Lark Books and "New Rings: 500+ Designs from Around the World" by Nicolas Estrada; and receiving an "Independent Artists Grant" from the Saskatchewan Arts Board.  Melody will have a full article in the January 2012 issue of “Art Jewelry Magazine”.

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

          

What is particularly distinctive about this body of work is its structural form, created to deliberately play with negative and positive space. My jewellery designs testify to the textural dynamic and technical approach within my practice, seeming to have evolved organically, taking on an industrial influence. The varied interplay of colours and textures creates distinctive contrasts, evoking vividness of exquisite dimensions, which are rich, bold and engaging.

            I have always been fascinated by the mysterious potential that metals have to offer and the opportunity of transforming their original properties in order to stretch the scope of what can be achieved.  The pieces in this art jewellery exhibition are a result of the exploration and learning new techniques thus allowing for spontaneity to flourish.  Receiving an Independent Artist Grant from the Saskatchewan Arts Board has allowed me to focus on the development of this contemporary body of work giving me the opportunity to introduce the following new techniques to my practice. Plasma cutting steel to create interesting components; scoring and bending to create three dimensional structural pieces that are architectural in nature and then working with the negative shapes that evolve; copper electroforming organic materials to transform them into permanent metal objects; Chasing and Repousse, transforming flat metal sheet into three dimensional, sculptural forms.

            I am delighted to use contrasts in surfaces and materials to highlight the elements I have imposed throughout the metal. Vitreous Enamel creates bursts of colour and reflection while the patina oxidizes much of the metallic surfaces, providing a sense of distress, corrosion and decay.

          My objective has always been to transfer my emotions, creative passion and risk taking into my jewellery in an expressive way to arrive at exciting jewellery forms that elicit awe and inspiration, and personalize them in order to give my work a distinctive character.

All work in this exhibition can be viewed online here:

At 10:30am on March 22, 2009, Michele said…Thanks for the friend invite Melody. I am very new to metal work and have been completely consumed by it! I did not know such a passion existed. As I only took one course in silversmith techniques of jewelry making, I am, and will continue to be, primarily self-taught. This site seemed like an amazing sharing and support for metal artists in Canada!
If you know of anyone selling tools, I would be most interested. I am now looking for a used rolling mill in good condition as it is getting very expensive starting out! Thanks!
