¡ OJO ! que te estan mirando !! Ramon Puig Cuyas

Classé dans : BARCELONA,COUP DE COEUR,Espagne (ES),Ramon PUIG CUYAS (ES) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:04

cette série de broches, avec ces yeux, ces regards, me font immanquablement penser aux vers de Victor Hugo « et l’oeil était dans la tombe et regardait Caïn … »

…. me font également penser à cette injonction espagnole « ¡ ojo ! » qui signifie « attention ! « 

Il faut regarder, avoir l’oeil, prêter attention …. porter un oeil …. mauvais signe ou protection ? Mise en scène de tout un jeu de miroirs des regards, qui regarde qui, qui regarde quoi ?

OJO! - Ramon Puig Cuyas-  Aspice me (mirame)- Broch, Silver, nickel silver, plastic, paper, mother pearl, onyx.
Ramon Puig CuyasAspice me (mirame)- Broch, Silver, nickel silver, plastic, paper, mother pearl, onyx.

le premier le dit clairement : REGARDE-MOI ! MIRAME !

Ramon Puig Cuyas’ work takes inspiration from collage techniques as a means of combining different symbols and transforming their meaning. Most of the materials used are found, non-precious elements, combined with silver. His pieces relate to his personal experiences and emotions and often tell a story. This Catalan artist has since the beginning of his career broken free from the traditional jewellery forms and concepts of his homeland. His works come from within and communicate a preciousness that goes beyond mere intrinsic value. They narrate the artist’s inner feelings and state of mind, and make use of metaphors to relate his ideas. By just looking at his pieces, one is able to « read » a story. His earlier « Journey » brooches convey the spiritual journey we go through in life and the encounters made throughout, his « Walled Gardens » series narrate closed, intimate spaces behind high walls enclosing gardens, and his latest « Imago Mundi » series endeavours to uncover ambiguity and contradiction, thus life and death, light and darkness, black and white, absence and presence, and attempts to establish a dialogue between the two extremes. The latter works seem to include less colour than his previous brightly painted pieces. They are representative of a different time and experience, and are ingrained with a conflict of feelings, that is reflected in these pieces.

« While attending this year’s SNAG Conference in Houston, a chronic nagging question was amplified. What, exactly, is it that I do ? In passing conversations I never seem to be able to explain it to any acceptable degree without endless digressive hurdles. In the simplest terms I set out with the word “jewelry” though even this is a personal conversational concession. The litany of descriptors we can now alter jewelry with can leave a person breathless – art jewelry, contemporary jewelry, sculptural jewelry to name a few. Casual conversations always include “no, I don’t make that kind of jewelry. And when I start using phrases like “abstract life forms” and “composite resin” people’s faces screw into frustration. When I’m feeling less motivated I just say “I make jewelry out of plastics . . . various plastics”. But it feels condescending both to whomever I’m speaking with, and what it is I like about my work. I’ve spent nine years and borrowed tens of thousands of dollars for two degrees – a BFA with the words “Metalsmithing and Jewelry Making” at the end and an MFA with the alternate “Jewelry and Metal Arts” attached. But I find none of this mixing and matching of terminology to be of any help when trying to actually articulate what it is I do with all of my time. »


COUP de COEUR ! Caroline Broadhead

Caroline Broadhead studied jewelry in London with such distinguished artists as Wendy Ramshaw, Gijs Bakker, and Emmy van Leersum. A visit to East Africa in the late 1970s encouraged her to create jewelry that responded to the form of the body. By the mid 1980s, her constructions had become increasingly removed from jewelry as she concentrated on conceptual aspects of clothing and installation art. Since 1978, Broadhead has taught textiles, jewelry, ceramics, and other disciplines at Brighton Polytechnic, Middlesex University, and Goldsmiths College, University of London.
Education: 1969-72, Central School of Art and Design, London; 1968-69, Leicester School of Art, England – (Museum of Art & Design MAD)

« In the 70s and 80s, I was exploring ideas about jewellery, the way it could be handled, change on or off the body etc, ideas that were best expressed through materials of a certain colour, weight or flexibility. I made work out of coloured cotton threads and rope and my tufted bracelets used very fine nylon threads. And as my ideas were developing, I became more interested in the non-precious materials, ones that did not have a recent history in jewellery. By the mid 1980s I was making much larger scale pieces in woven nylon – veils, collars and sleeves. This scale was exciting as it allowed me to examine a spatial awareness around the body in a new way. For example, the Necklace/Veil was woven out of nylon line. It married something that you could wear round the neck with something you could also twist up to become a veil. It became a screen to look through to the wearer, or for the wearer to look back, as much as something to look at. These larger pieces that covered more of the body led me to clothing forms which gave me greater scope to express ideas about the whole person. These were not fashion but there didn’t seem to be a particular category for my pieces to be located, except art. »

« How important is function in your work?
Jewellery made me consider the fit and use of objects on the body in a practical way, but the function of my pieces has been to give the viewer or wearer a particular experience, or to start a train of thought. When I started making garments in the 80s they were wearable – even if they didn’t look it. The function of wearability was not my aim, the important thing was that there was a possibility that they could be worn. They were a way of exploring and expressing ideas. Clothing as art was an area in its infancy in the 80s.
So if function is no longer relevant, what are you trying to do with your garments?
I used the garments, and subsequent work, to explore notions about a person. The first shirts I made gave form to the gestures a garment makes you do when you put it on. For example Wraparound Shirt makes you ‘put the other arm in’, you keep repeating that gesture to put it on. But I also wanted to create pieces that had a strong visual impact when they weren’t being worn. In my work with dance, gesture and movement are also important. I have created dresses that direct the dancer’s movements and set the scene for these movements.
Can you explain your attraction to textiles?
I started working with textiles before I realised that that was what I was doing. Most of my work is working with textiles, or about textiles. I like the fact we are surrounded by it in various forms, its feel, and what it does. I enjoy the sense of touch. It’s an amazing manufactured material which you then add your manufacturing process to – often you meet the material in this half-way position. It’s already had a human touch.«  (Interview by Diana Woolf – nov 2009 – « maker of the month » –

Caroline Broadhead catalogue cover (open showing front and back) Arnolfini Gallery, Bristol November 1981

« This catalogue is of an exhibition of Caroline Broadhead’s, whose work at this time was inspired by having taken up embroidery in Kenya. Using the practice of wooden hoops for tensioning the material, she used laminated wood and the industrial nylon monofilament which she colour-dyed and utilised in this body of work. Work which was of a playful and colourful yet rigorous and controlled nature fashioned into bracelets, necklaces and brooches. These became canonical works in the repertoire of one of the five major presences in British New Jewellery : Caroline Broadhead, Pierre Degen, Susanna Heron, Julia Manheim, and David Watkins. »
Caroline Broadhead, Seven seams – skeleton of clothes - (winner of Jerwood Prize for Applied Arts- Textiles in 1997 )

In her early pieces she employed flexible nylon monofilament structures that could be collapsed to form a neckpiece, pulled up to form a ruff effect or even expanded to cover the face and head (e.g. neckpiece/veil, 1983; see Dormer and Turner, pl. 161). She also used multi-coloured woven flax for broad hooped necklaces and bracelets (e.g. tufted necklace, 1979; see Houston, pl. 12). The range of plain and coloured acrylic jewellery produced by C&N Buttons & Jewellery Production, a company she formed in London in 1978 with Nuala Jamison (b 1 Oct 1948), had a broader appeal. In her work Broadhead proposed new functions for materials and techniques, going beyond the idea of a unique item of value, to fuse clothing and decorative accessories in a complete and imaginative ensemble. In the 1980s she created a new mood with elusive body garments: Cocoon, Seam (both 1986) and Web (1989; all London, Crafts Council Gal.) are cotton and nylon fabrics that, once wrapped, form surreal patterns that play on an ambiguity between clothing and personality. Broadhead has been recognized as a leading innovator in the New Tradition tendency in Europe, a generation of designers who, over two decades into the 1980s, revised many of jewellery’s conventions.
