About Maisie


Maisie Broadhead received an MFA from the Royal College of Art in 2009.

Jewelry Depicted is a series of photographic re-interpretations of classical paintings with jewelry as its central focus.

Broadhead intends to jewelry to act as more than a prop. ‘In the flesh the jewellery is a collection of distorted and hidden half-truths,’ she says.

Her first solo show, The House of Fake, was exhibited at Sarah Myerscough Gallery in London and Sienna Gallery at SOFA Chicago in 2010.

I REALLY LIKE THIS WORK. YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY ARTIST TO RESURRECT THE TECHNIQUES OF THE OLD MASTERS AND I PERSONALLY AM GLAD TO SEE THE PENDULUM SWING SO FAR IN THIS DIRECTION. I ALSO LIKE TO SEE ART TELL A STORY. KEEP IT UP.
COOL

Absolutely extraordinary. I'm so thrilled to see this quality of imaginative and creative art being produced in the 21st century. After so long a period of obtusely abstract work being in the forefront, the ability to create mystery with the traditional form is refreshing!

Although masterful in technique, these two appear less a reinterpretation than a one note joke, wherein the artist utilizes a different medium and different mechanics to achieve an already achieved result. Look deeper into yourself and find the truth about what you feel, rather than delving only into cleverness. Much more rewarding, and you have the tools already to do it.
