Peter Chang – Unnatural Selection…

Peter Chang – widely regarded as one of the greatest working jewellers of our time is having a large retrospective exhibition of his work, entitled ‘Unnatural Selection’ at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, England…it will run from the 15th of June through to the 30th of September.

This is the first time early work and sculptures, along with drawings, paintings, prints and pieces from private collections from across the world will be brought together alongside his more recent jewellery explorations.

Peter Chang works with various plastics, such as Acrylic, Polyester, Resin and PVC and developed many of the techniques he uses himself…a true and original pioneer of the material. Read a short essay about Peter’s life and work here

I read that the exhibition may also be touring to London and Glasgow [where Peter lives] after the Liverpool show closes…so I will let you know as soon as I hear venue confirmations.

I think this is one show not to miss!

Thanks for the post! I love Chang and had no idea that he was exhibiting in Liverpool. I really hope that I get a chance to go and see it.

I have posted about your post and other UK jewellery events on my blog:

I love Peter Chang’s use of colour, its just pure beauty. I didn’t know he was exhibiting in Liverpool at the moment, its great I only live a 30 minute train journey away!

Great post! x

Absolutely incredible…moving, organic, living, oceanic! The color is so exciting that one cannot stop in one place…it just keeps going. It is a natural for me!
