Oxidized sterling silver
Valentine Dubois masterfully creates forms in oxidized sterling silver and turns them into compositions of refined, artful disposition. Beginning with planes of silver, she skillfully persuades the metal into folded, rectangular bearings. A piece which exudes great mechanical marvel, Dubois then takes the two rectangular pieces and joins them, adhering a slice of silver to their side joints, immediately introducing structural integrity to the work. Then, bending the metal subjects further, she folds each form on itself to complete their full, dimensional form. Allowing space to inhabit their interiors, the artist beckons our further curiosity and intrigue. Undulating surfaces tease the light as one watches its bright energy travel across its vast textured plane. For the finishing touch, Dubois pierces a backing to our composition, and fabricates a duo pin structure so that the work may firmly hold onto the body. With a light pinch one may release the pins from their well constructed, silver chamber. An astounding work of art to stir the soul, Dubois offers an unforgettable statement for your everyday.
