Kate Bauman Mess



My recent work explores ornamentation and adornment in contemporary culture. I am particularly interested in the psychology of adornment and the experience of jewelry as images. By exaggerating and obfuscating formal characteristics of familiar jewelry -shape, form, color- my work explores the aspects of jewelry that cultivate desire.
