About Aimee Fairman

Aimee Fairman is a Melbourne-based installation artist and jeweller. Her practice employs multi-sensory immersive installation, kinetic sculpture and photography to engage with ideas of psycho-geographical landscapes. Through both ephemeral site-specific research projects, gallery-based installation and jewellery, Fairman’s practice considers ideas of the simulacra to explore the shifts in territory between the virtual and real, actual and pictorial, organic and artifice. 

 

Aimee Fairman is a Melbourne-based installation artist and jeweller. Her practice employs multi-sensory immersive installation, kinetic sculpture and photography to engage with ideas of psycho-geographical landscapes.

Through both ephemeral site-specific research projects, gallery-based installation and jewellery, Fairman’s practice considers ideas of the simulacra to explore the shifts in territory between the virtual and real, actual and pictorial, organic and artifice. 

Drawing on thematic and technical cross-overs from her sculptural installation practice, Fairman combines ideas of Kitsch, Romanticism and Science Fiction with geological and botanical forms to produce wearable pieces imbued with symbolism.

Fairman’s examination of the simulacra is evident in even the smallest of her jewellery pieces. The forms evoke notions of replication of a naturalist geography, whilst upon closer inspection, the hybrid colour palette and alchemical infusions allow Fairman to “paint” enclosed, miniaturised environments of phenomena.

Each piece of the Fairman’s resin jewellery range is personally hand-sculpted, then individually hand-cast in carefully curated colours. Fairman’s extensive experience as a sculptor and installation artist is distilled into each of her exquisitely detailed, one-of-a-kind resin pieces.

Her jewellery is stocked at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne.
