OVM | NEW WEBSTORE
November 23, 2011

This past year was filled with surprises and important moments: working in a new warehouse studio in downtown LA, unveiling my second solo show at Martha Otero Gallery, the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, and the release of my monograph, Rebus. Unexpectedly, I also started developing a line of fine jewelry, scarves, and objects with support from my friends in Japan. I traveled to Tokyo 5 times in the past year, before and after the tsunami, to shepherd OVM into existence. As I explored this new medium, motifs in my work found new expression in precious metals and materials.
 

Drawing inspiration from forms in nature, OVM is a place of luminous fantasy and dark decay. Four major series of fine jewelry will be released this next year, along with textiles and design objects.
 

My fine art will continue to exist at www.jamesjean.com, while www.ovmlove.com will now act as my exclusive webstore, featuring my books and prints along with new offerings from OVM, which can been seen below.

For the holidays, we are offering FREE SHIPPING on all the items below and on all orders over $100, and FREE SHIPPING on international orders over $200.

OVM WAVE RING

A small wave. It whispers as it coils around the finger, "My beginning is my undoing." But it is tranquil, neither advancing nor receding, its tendrils poised in mid-crest, searching.
