Bracelet | Gibbon Finger by Lisa Roet | Sterling Silver & 24ct Matte Gold
This luxurious and impactful Gibbon Finger cuff is a shining example of wearable art, hand crafted by Australian artist Lisa Roet.
For over two decades Lisa Roet has interrogated the complex relationship between humans and our simian cousins through her art, drawing on associated debates around evolution and creationism, language, communication and science to highlight the critical challenges facing humanity today. She has exhibited widely locally and internationally alongside undertaking a range of residencies with research centres and major international zoos and was included in the exhibition 'Primavera 2000: Young Australian Artists' at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia.
An extension of her visual art practice, Lisa Roet’s jewellery collection reminds us of our connection to our closest animal relatives, by adorning the human form with a potent sense of the “Other”. The imprint of Gorilla and Orangutan skin is cast and then layered as jewellery upon the skin of the human wearer.
