EXPO ‘Working in METAL : three women’, Aaron Faber gallery, New-York (USA) – 18 mars-19 avril 2010

‘Working in METAL : three women’

EXPO Aaron Gallery - 3women

The exhibition features the work of Glenda Arentzen, Sydney Lynch and So Young Park, different generations of jewelry artists with similar interests in working directly in sterling silver and gold. Exhibition opens March 18 at Aaron Faber Gallery, New York, and moves on April 15th to the Park Avenue Armory where the artists will present their work.

Glenda Arentzen, whose work is in the Museum of Art and Design permanent collection, celebrates more than forty years working by hand as a jewelry artist. Her silver and gold highly textured works are sculptural with an appeal that derives in part from their tactile qualities.

Sydney Lynch (affiche), favors bi-metal, a gold-and-silver sheet metal that allows her to create works that play with both metals. She incorporates gemstones, often rough or cabochon, that are colorful rather than precious.

 So Young Park, the most junior of the artists, writes in the third person about her work : « So Young Park’s concept is that of nativity ; where her work is not created but born through her diligent creativity of forming metal. Human and plant life have similar growth and life characteristics. Creation of life requires much patience and suffering. She appreciates being involved in the process to experience the power of miracles, even if it requires the endurance to give a life to her jewelry. Her jewelry pieces express desire, hope, and the power of life through organic plant forms and sea lives that are artistically rendered in a simplistic, geometric, and sophisticated manner.
Expressing the emotions she has towards nativity through using the assembling wires, tiny concave disc, hammered textures, and hand engraving patterns symbolize the origins of life and each elements represent the single cells that makeup all life.
So Young Park usually works on sterling silver and 18k yellow gold with pearls and stones to create beautiful jewelry. She uses a patina with silver to add beautiful colors to the surface. She also brings oxidized silver and gold together to express a beautiful contrast of these cherished materials.

Traditional techniques do not mean lack of innovation : Dorit SCHUBERT & lace

Bobbin lace / dentelle au fuseau
« Traditional techniques do not mean a lack of innovation. Designer Dorit Schubert from Dresden discovered the very traditional art of bobbin lace making as an ideal medium for jewellery design. She works with fine threads of silver, stainless steel and coloured nylon in the traditional bobbin lace technique into filigreed jewellery.  She develops three-dimensional shapes and connections from the flat shape and fits them together.  She takes her cue from nature, lets blossom bells, leaves, pods, and panicles grow in the truest sense of the word.  Her astonishing technical perfection is a surprise and unites with its precise shapes into a small treasure of unusual transparency and lightness.  Structurally the necklaces and ear-hangings seem fragile, but in their craftsmanship they are actually quite tough and indestructible. »

After she trained as a dental technician Dorit Schubert absolved a professional study from 1995 until 1998 at the HS Zwickau in Saxonia and mastered at the Applied Arts Schneeberg in textile arts.  Since that time she has worked on her own and has received much recognition for her very special jewellery.  1998 the State Prize of Bavaria, 2008 Blickfang Design Prize and the Prize for Applied Arts Koppel 66 in Hamburg.

Elle explique des tas de choses sur son site, sur les matériaux utilisés et la technique, mais malheureusement uniquement en allemand … :-(   tout cela a un coté très bucolique et délicat, pas « cucul » pour deux sous ! Et les couleurs ont un coté rafraichissant et suranné en même temps …. délicieux !

Bijoux textiles de Anke HENNIG – éléments organiques, faune indécise…

Anke Hennig combines with her jewellery the colours of winter and icy glitter with her delicate transparency of textile weave, called Monofil. The secret of her invention she keeps all to herself. The rosettes which are made into brooches and earrings are light and precious : a flexible development of the chains, partly because of the secrecy of their technique and at the same time their beauty.

« The underlying idea of my work is a new design principle.  I am limited to clear forms and the principle of sequences. Simple, flat braids are wound aroundand over themselves and form a spiral and provide an unusual aesthetic in the third dimension. Pieces of jewellery are produced with an appearance and a surface, which hardly allows one to imagine its origin. The lightness and mouldability of the materials are particularly important to me. My preference for filigrees influence the original shape of my jewellery. »(Anke Hennig)
