Graduated in Fine Arts in 2012 and currently enrolled in honours at QCA. My current art practice as a Metalsmith and Jeweller involves the creating of small objects and jewellery. Each work of art is hand crafted with the intent of developing a dialogue within the public sphere regarding masculinity and its impact on women and children through the misuse of power resulting in domestic violence. My research into masculinity, child abuse, discrimination, sexuality and gender issues has led me to reflect on a deeper understanding of my life experiences. These experiences involved reflections of domestic violence and how these forces relate to my mother and daughter allowing me to recontextualise these memories in small objects and wearable jewelry.; www.jewelleryartbyhardwick.com
