Robert Baines: Metal
Robert Baines is one of Australia’s most prominent and influential jewellers and goldsmiths with a career spanning more than 30 years. His exceptional craft skills and extraordinary body of work are being honoured at Object Gallery through the 2010 Living Treasures: Masters of Australian Craft series.
Baines has profoundly shaped Australian jewellery, object-making and international historical scholarship. With wry humour, his works challenge our conception of the world as much as they delight with their technical brilliance.
A professor of RMIT University, Melbourne, where he continues to teach gold and silversmithing, Baines’s multifaceted practice encompasses his work as an artist-goldsmith, scholarship in archeometallurgy, and ongoing criticism and commentary in the field of contemporary crafts.
His internationally recognised study of archaeological treasures in gold grounds his own craft practice, achieving a sense of continuity with his ancient colleagues and providing a platform to toy with the mytholoy of our own culture.
