Padre and Craft present artist and jeweller Annie Gobel.
The Padre Coffee Melbourne CBD’s window presents Annie Gobel’s series of pendants that responds to Padre’s signature blend called 'Hey Buddy'. The pieces were coated with a mixture of enamel and the actual filtered coffee.
Annie Gobel is an Indonesian artist based in Melbourne since 2004. In 2013, she completed her Honours degree in Fine Art, having specialised in Object Based Practice.
Her practice in the contemporary art jewellery field revolves around the idea of reminiscing childhood times. She celebrates the joy of playtime by continually revisiting aspects that are related to it. Toys, art activities, and features of her drawings have influenced her decisions made through making, while blending an intuitive way of working – like a child. Her current works consist of small, geometric objects that have been informed by features of the toys themselves and her drawings that have distinctive bold, black lines that outline the forms and contain colour.
