Tiffany Parbs

Australia Council for the Arts Residency
2012/13

Tiffany Parbs is a conceptual jeweller whose practice actively seeks to explore expanded definitions of jewellery, to challenge and extend perceptions of the medium. Considering the idea of the worn body and how bodies are represented in diverse media frameworks, Tiffany observes herself and others; how people live within their skin, communicate value and present a sense of self to others.

Tiffany’s work has been showcased widely, in exhibitions at The Dowse Art Museum, New Zealand (2018), Holding House, Detroit, USA (2017), National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne (2014), and Design Museum London (2013). Tiffany’s work is represented in the Modern Jewellery Collection National Museums of Scotland Edinburgh UK, Manchester Metropolitan University Special Collections Manchester UK, Rare Books Collection State Library of Victoria Melbourne, Australia, private collections and is referenced in numerous contemporary jewellery publications, worldwide.
