2010 Graduating Students Award

Nadene Carr

Manukau School of Visual Arts

"We chose Nadene because of her commitment and passion for her practice. Her final body of work looked at the play between clothing and jewellery from a fresh perspective. It was well conceived and executed and bought something new and unique to the discussion. We felt she would take full advantage of the opportunity offered in having her work showcased at Fingers and approach the opportunity in a professional manner."
Fran Allison, Senior Lecturer, Manukau School of Visual Arts

"In my work I am interested in two forms of adornment, garment and jewellery. My curiosity lies in the crossover of the two and how close they come to each other, and what happens in the exchange. The metal gives a sense of traditional jewellery. Using it as framework for the underlying structure in which i push through fabric embedded with objects to add a sculptural dimension. Fabric embodies a piece of history, often a favorite garment has memories adding another layer.
By recycling it into another form of simple beauty and detail allows a connection physically and emotionally to the wearer."
