Caroline Gore’s recent series …mercurial silence… is the culmination of an investigation of how grief and loss manifest in society. This body of work considers comparative meanings sought through the multidisciplinary research of historical jewelry, Roman myth, photographic materials, and functional/sculptural objects as they relate to commonalities across human experience.
With an undergraduate degree in Crafts (jewelry focus) from Virginia Commonwealth University and a graduate degree in Metal Design from East Carolina University, Gore is known on a national level for her expansive and thought provoking studio practice. Ranging from small-scale wearable pieces to multimedia sculptural installations, large scale drawings, and conceptual photographic objects, Gore’s work be found in the permanent collection of The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the Racine Art Museum, and numerous private collections. Her jewelry has been featured in group and solo exhibitions across the US, in addition to publications such as Metalsmith Magazine and the 500 series books published by Lark Books. The artist currently lives and works in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where she serves as an Associate Professor of Jewelry/Metals in the Craft & Material Studies program at The University of the Arts.
