Night/Dazed: New Work by Jennifer Merchant
June 6 - June 26, 2018

Facèré presents Night/Dazed, a collection of layered acrylic jewelry and small sculpture by artist Jennifer Merchant. Night/Dazed invites viewers to gaze deep into the layered abyss and explore illusions of time and space. These works combine graphic black and white op art prints with images from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, and layers them between solid acrylic. The layered acrylic is hand sculpted into various geometric forms, creating pieces that are graphic and colorful from one angle and transparent from the other. Wonderfully dimensional, each piece changes as it's viewed from different angles.

Triangle Chain Drop Earrings: Earrings in acrylic, inkjet prints, and silver. 3.25" long. Triangles are 1" x 1" x .75". Giant Faceted Ring: Acrylic, inkjet prints, 24k gold leaf. 2 x 1.75 x 1.5". Night/Dazed Sculpted Dome Ring: Ring in acrylic and paper, featuring images from Hubble Space Telescope and black and white op art. 1 7/8 x 1 5/8". Approximate size 7.
