Maureen Duffy is a jewelry artist and urban explorer. Her work emphasizes the beauty in the mundane cityscape. Currently her focus is on repetitive elements such as chain link fences, wrought iron gates, and brick walls; things that provide temporary structural protection and keep people in and out. Every city block these structures vary in integrity, repetition, and form, changing the vibe and social construct of the neighborhood, just as jewelry can change the image of a wearer. All of Maureen’s pieces start as photographs and drawings of patterns and textures in the urban environment that is all around us but often overlooked.
