A curated exhibition, the first to show both facets of the artist's work and to explore the relationship between them.
A passion for both materials and process fueled Romilly Suamarez Smith’s twenty-five year career as one of Britain’s most highly acclaimed bookbinders. In the 1990s she began to use metal more frequently in her binding, gradually turning her attention to making jewellery. Structured Elegance featured a selection of her sophisticated and elegantly bound books along with a number of her subtle and intricate brooches, rings, and necklaces.
Eileen Hogan was a co-curator (with Elisabeth Fairman Senior Curator at the YCBA) for the exhibition at Yale as well as an exhibitor: Romilly Saumerez Smith, Oil on paper 2010 portrait courtesy of the artist.
