Benefit 2020 Auction Items: Emily Percival’s Earrings

It captures your spirit. It’s that spirit that lead you to run a marathon, climb mountains in Bhutan, splash in the mud in your backyard, and spend a month in a Buddhist monastery in India. You’re not be afraid to wear dirty, worn in hiking boots, don sweat pants around the city, and show off your calloused unmanicured hands. Yet it’s that same spirit that allows you to be unabashedly feminine, crave softness and lace and comfort, appreciate candle lit dinners, and wear that black toile and velvet dress.

Emily Percival’s earrings decidedly harness and boast that raw spirit. It’s that incongruity, that complexity, that seductive ambivalence that defines you. A mixture of metal lines and circles, in perfect, harmonious balance, reflecting your contradictory nature. Emily herself is a rebel, a kindred spirit. As a 15 year-old punk rocker, she snuck into an adult metal smithing course, and the rest, as they say, is history. She received her BFA from Maine College of Art in 2006. She creates striking jewelry for “every grown up punk and refined rebel.”

Val Rossman has been creating drawings and paintings in her studio in Philadelphia for the last 25 years.  Her work has gone through various stages, however, her wonderful sense of color combined with a lyrical and often whimsical mentality have always infused her drawings with a lush  and personal aura.  The combination of rich and unexpected hues and gestures with sometimes questioning formats give the work an unforgettable presence.

Matthew Borgen's recent work utilizes imagery from comic books published during the mid-20th century — the genre’s so-called golden age. Using their visual conventions, nostalgic aura, and narrative structure in combination with images borrowed from art history and other popular cultural sources, Borgen has developed a hybrid visual language which he uses in his digital prints and wall installations to make comment on topics ranging from historical, formal strategies of artmaking to issues within the current political and social discourse.
