Constantinos Kyriacou – série « Paramythi »(fairytales)

« Constantinos Kyriacou considers his work continuous inner research. He prefers to communicate his emotions and thoughts through his pieces rather than by using words to explain them. Some of the driving forces in Kyriacou’s work are different states of mind, the co-existence of opposites and contradictions. These are all elements in which he finds inspiration. He tries to keep a balance and moves on a fine line when expressing himself through his work. Kyriacou’s latest group of creations is entitled Red. He states that he was induced to create this collection, not through passion itself, as it may seem, nor through its absence, but its existence as inner « in-formation » struggling to be translated. Expression in pure form is the beginning of a circle, no matter what the subject is, or the way something is conveyed. Subsequently when pushed by external factors, the expressed becomes veiled, and ultimately passes to invisibility, at which point it has to be detached again from any limitation. That is the transitional point where expression of passion urges to be exposed. And that is the point on which the RED collection is focussed. Kyriacou is not concerned with whether or not viewer fully understands the whole meaning of the piece in question, but rather that the state of mind and feelings of the artist, at the time of making the piece, come through in the finished oeuvre.   »

COUP de COEUR ! Carrie BILBO – Laissez la nature nous envahir ! phobies….

Laissez la nature nous envahir !

« A phobia is an “irrational, intense, persistent fear of certain situations, activities, things, or people.

« My collection of sculptural jewelry explores some of the ordinary objects and insects commonly associated with phobic behaviors while suggesting the characteristics that may provoke the strongest sensations of each of them. A paradox between the beautiful and the creepy is also explored and further extended when inner anxieties are presented as body adornment. Whether it be a gigantic spider on your shoulder or a head piece of branches masking one from the outside world, these fears are shown dramatically attaching themselves to the body both physically and psychologically. For my collection I chose to represent three phobias: Dendrophobia, or the fear of trees, Entomophobia or the fear of insects (particularly flying insects) and the most common phobia, Arachnophobia, the fear of spiders. The evolutionary development of the human psyche can account for many of the fears that terrorize mankind. Humans have learned through time to fear anything with more than two legs, therefore the many legs of a spider or the spine crawling feeling of those legs creeping up your body are innately terrifying. I selected aspects of a spider along with aspects of the other selected phobias and exaggerated them just as the human responses to the fears are themselves an exaggeration. The legs of a spider, along with the wounds of a tree, or the wings of a cicada are represented on the body both literally and conceptually through their feeling, texture, color, and sound. These interactive works made of precious metals and gemstones are attaching themselves to the very bodies that instinctively fear them. » (Carrie BILBO )
