Mon 17th Jan: Jessica Meek at The RCA Work-in-Progress Show

Here is Jessica Meek's display in the current "Work-in-Progress Show" at The Royal College. The whole exhibition comprises of MA students from Fashion, Textiles, Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork & Jewellery and Photography.

"My work explores repetition of three-dimensional geometric forms and framework within a structure. This project was strongly influenced by digital architecture installations as well as armor and Spirograph!

I chose to exhibit contrasting pieces alongside each other to illustrate two sides of this project. The sculptural piece is delicate and elegant, whereas the video which shows a more playful and lively side of my work.

Its work in progress' so its not fully realised yet, Im working on hopefully incorporating these ideas on to a jacket and dress."

Jess Meek came to assist me for a while after a stint at Noel Stewart having previously studied milinery at The London College of Fashion. With all this experience under her belt (or hat!) she applied to the grueling initiation to the RCA MA and gain one of the rare coveted places. This is the first public viewing of her work so far................ to see for yourself the show is open to the public for 2 more days at Royal College of Art, Kensington Gore, London SW7 2EU 13 – 19 January 2011 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> a chance to see the future stars!
