    Ornament, pattern, and decoration are the details that mark humanity. Through the vocabularies of jewelry, architectural ornament, and signage, Amelia Toelke’s work engages these details to address the rich human history of adornment and the shared understanding of visual language.
     
    A combination of sculpture and installation, her work lies at the interstice of the two-dimensional and the three-dimensional, and hovers between object and image, the real, the representative. Through an integration of process, content, and material, and a balance of excess and restraint, she aims to invoke a sensorial experience and embody a collective human spirit.
