About

Fruits of my Labour
Louise Perrone
October 14 – November 25, 2021

Fruits of My Labour will present new works in an installation of fruit shaped jewellery objects, made from decorative plastic fruit covered in recycled swimsuit lycra, displayed on mirrored surfaces. Documentation of the process, including deconstructing the clothing, creating the jewellery, and placing it on the body will be part of the installation (through sound and video). The work will address issues around women’s work, white supremacy and consumption.

Louise Perrone (Vancouver, BC) is a Canadian jewellery artist who works with materials from domestic and industrial waste, employing techniques that combine the traditions of goldsmithing and hand sewing to explore the values attributed to traditional women’s work. Born in London, England, Perrone holds a Bachelor of Art in Sculpture from Nottingham Trent University and a Post Graduate Certificate in Art and Design Education from the University of Brighton. In 2002, she graduated from Alberta College of Art and Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Jewellery and Metals. Perrone is the recipient of several awards including the Governor General of Canada’s Academic Medal and The ACAD Alumni Legacy Award. Exhibiting across North America and Europe, her work has been featured in several publications including two of the Lark 500 series. An instructor in the Jewellery Department at LaSalle College, Louise is an active member of the Craft Community, currently serving on the board of the VMAA as Past President and volunteering with SNAG as Co-Chair of the annual Exhibition in Motion. Louise is represented in Canada by Galerie Noel Guyomarc’h and the Craft Council of British Columbia. In the US she is represented by the Heidi Lowe Gallery and Gallery 2052.
