Wilderness of the Unknown


An upcoming exhibition featuring the work of jewellery maker and artist Judy McCaig, originally from Scotland but resident in Barcelona for over twenty years. From October 10th through January 12th 2013 hosted by the dterra gallery and workshop, Avenida Josep Anselm Clavé 9, 08172 Sant Cugat del Vallès.

"I scavenged the dry desert earth around the middle of New Mexico, so many dead trees, pieces of abandoned cars, dumped fridges, tin cans, broken sheets of iron, wood, plastic. Unwanted garbage left to age, to rust and to carry on changing over time. These found, discarded pieces travelled back with me to become the starting point of this new body of work. I wanted to begin with metal which had previously been part of another history that had been weathered and renewed by the extreme climatic conditions that it had been exposed to. Part of the creation coming from a natural process of destruction and re-construction."
