Zoë Veness is a contemporary jewellery artist and design lecturer at the University of New South Wales, Art & Design in Sydney, Australia.
Her exhibition and curatorial projects explore notions of place, materiality and craft practice. A feature of her work is a preoccupation with intricate and repetitive forms of making through two distinct methods involving paper or metal.
Her jewellery has been selected for exhibitions in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Korea, Singapore, England, Scotland, Germany, and the USA, and is held in private and public collections including the National Gallery of Australia and the Art Gallery of South Australia.
She has had ten solo exhibitions at national venues and received awards including Australia Council Visual Art grants in 2002, 2006 and 2017, and an Australian Postgraduate Award in 2011 for PhD research at UNSW, Art & Design.
