Andrew Goss

"My work usually concerns itself with simplicity of form and material awareness. I'm particularly interested in the mandorla form (the leaf, boat, eye, pod shape) in that is represents the intersection of two circles, two perfect shapes, and makes a gateway or a way through at the intersection. I'm also concerned with materials as they relate to jewellery: what makes a material precious? Is it its monetary value or its aesthetic value? That's why I use concrete, plastics, silver, gold leaf, bronze – any material carries with it an inherent value."

Andrew Goss studied at George Brown College, the University of Toronto, and Hornsey College of Arts in London, England. He has shown his work in over 100 exhibitions and his work has been presented in galleries across Canada and the United States.
