A breakthrough piece technically and aesthetically for me, REQUIESCAT emerged in response to viewing the Art Institute of Chicago’s astounding collection of Renaissance jewelry. Although I had been aware of several works of that period, nothing prepared me for the power of a large grouping in all their splendor. Wildly bejeweled, extravagant and often bordering on the ostentatious, the massive neckpieces spoke to me, unexpectedly, as kindred souls. The irony was sharp: the historic work spared absolutely no expense in material usage, whereas I was rummaging the bottom of the barrel, seeking to elevate the most pedestrian of materials to a position of preciousness. The religious iconography, darkly viewed, mirrored my own Catholic upbringing and infused REQUIESCAT with symbolic gravity. The piece sits quite low on the torso with a long chain/cord, conjuring connections to liturgical vestments.
