"I have recently returned home from an intensive one-year mentorship with esteemed art jeweller and educator Professor Ruudt Peters in Amsterdam. During and following that experience I have dedicated myself for over two years to developing a solo exhibition titled ‘Working Holiday’, to be exhibited in Melbourne and Sydney late 2017. This jewellery and installation exhibition has unfurled from a deep intuitive making process that was guided by Peters and it provides a dreamy reflection on a world wrapped in plastic and the power of the human hand to manipulate material in primal acts of creation and destruction. Through the Frontyard residency I will be working on finalising the work, installation and catalogue/zine for the exhibition." - Nina Baker
