As an artist and a jeweller, the physical act of mark making is very important to Lisa Arnott. This process allows Arnott to take her life experiences, memories and emotions, and direct them into the creation of a new piece.
From this notion, Arnott has created a series of intimate and wearable objects, using a limited palette of industrial enamels, which allow Arnott to be more focused on the mark making process rather than the variety of colour. Through these materials, she manipulates the thickness and the movement, being both spontaneous and contemplative with the process of layering and rubbing back to create a unique textured surface. This creative process acts as a vehicle to represent Arnott’s ideas, enabling the viewer to see inside the heart and mind of the artist and query: what is present and what is absent?
