Andrea Daly

Andrea Daly studied at Sydney College of the Arts gaining a BVA in 1987 and a post graduate diploma in Visual Arts in 1988.
She completed a Masters in Philosophy majoring in Art History at Auckland University in 1998.

In the catalogue for Collecting and Making, Philip Clarke describes Andrea's practice; "As a youth, jeweller Andrea Daly lived in the Hokianga area of Northland, the landscape of which has been often noted for an intense spiritual quality. This was one of the first areas of significant European settlement and has been considered the cradle of New Zealand Roman Catholicism. Daly was brought up in the Roman Catholic Church and notes that Hokianga Catholicism “has a special feral quality” which she describes as being palpable, rooted to the ground and for that reason lived rather than practised. Although no longer a Catholic practitioner she is, what has been termed, an ‘ethnic Catholic’ in the sense that Catholic knowledge and sensibilities remain deeply ingrained and these sensibilities continue to inform and be celebrated within her jewellery practice.
Daly’s own works possess a Catholic sensibility in terms of their beaded, embroidered and golden surfaces and use of angel, heart, skull and wing forms. In the past she has also used Catholic ex votos as the foundation for brooches.........Daly’s works speak about the possibilities of finding meaning and enchantment in the human, small and quotidian."

FROM 2005, Drawing Angel Wings

"This is a whimsical body of work referencing the romantic angel figure. They inhabit the world of 'just out of sight' and though rarely seen they leave their traces everywhere through our literature, religions, myths and contemporary media. They represent potential and possibility, the magical promise of the unknown."
Andrea Daly, 2005
