Ce n’est pas le « simple » coeur qui est donné à voir -à porter- ici, le « classique », à la Peynet, celui des « amoureux », non, c’est le coeur organe anatomique, masse musculaire, limite sanguinolant, et du fait de ce sang il évoque physique, mal, souffrance, et rejoint la représentation « chrétienne » du coeur christique, le « sanctus ignis sanctus viscus » ….. On part de la viscère pour arriver au coeur sacré de Jésus …… les voies du seigneur sont impénétrables…………………

This is a huge heart which actually is a huge knot. That is the key feeling in this work; a huge,  screaming (maybe bleeding..), knot- heart. The knot is such a paradoxical form; it consists of “one”, but through an action (of knotting) it becomes “two”, with a heart between them. At the same time it is the ground of endless processes which in themselves are not complex, but all together they create an unsolvable, knotted reality. An un-followable mass of actions and reactions. There is no wrong or right, just a complex, painful situation.” (Ela Bauer)

« More recently, I have begun to explore the heart and the many implicit meanings it has … Removed from the body, the heart is at the same time both container and content. It extends beyond the symbolic as it becomes both metaphor and metonym. In using the heart in my work as a vessel form, my intent is to continue the close association between body and object functions, thus developing a syntax that signifies interchange, transformation and desire. A recent piece « Mystic Interchange » addresses these concerns. These notions of union through interchange, transformation and desire are brought forward in the work through the tension found in the visual imagery, which is intended to suggest the oscillation between physical and spiritual planes. Not unlike the Eastern concept of bindu, an extensionless point from which there is an endless rhythmic expansion and contraction of the energy vibrations that form the cosmos, I also sought to express that moment of in-between, that moment where one is straddling the plane of transformation, where one is acutely aware of both sides and where at this point one is simultaneously both and neither. »(Lin Stanionis)

 Sara Westermark (US) - « I was originally going to make a locket, but I wanted a large hole in my heart. The hole represents our missing piece….. instead of lamenting our brokeness, our hearts are ornamented with gold and rubies. Material: sterling silver, 18k gold, rubies.
Norsola Johnson  » the theme fits perfectly with a new series I’ve been working on… It’s a locket containing a flaming sacred heart… the latin words  » sanctus ignis sanctus viscus » (sacred fire sacred heart) are stamped on the sides of the locket… »

COUP de COEUR ! Kate Bauman ‘Barnacle’ rings

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Kate BAUMAN (US),USA — bijoucontemporain @ 0:07

« The Barnacle Series is a group of fold-formed and enameled rings created with looseness as a byword. As a metalsmith and enamelist I am often plagued by the push and pull of skillful virtuosity and unconfined experimentation. These rings are simply about metal, enamel, and composition. By fold-forming the metal and using the enamel to fuse elements together, I was able to create enameled forms with a satisfying freedom. The forms themselves were relatively impulsive, but evoke the stubborn crustaceans I’ve observed in my surroundings on the Maine coast, in both form and the process by which they were made. »
