In its current exhibition JEWELLERY – WOOD – PAPER, Galerie Slavik presents creations by international artists in a rich array of forms and designs inspired by the world of nature.
The Danish jewellery artist Castello Hansen specialises in working in wood – and he prefers birch for its lightness. His ring sculptures and pendants, with their simple and clear forms, are captivating to the eye. The profiled golden disc at the centre of his round brooch of whitened wood seems to float as it catches the light.
Silke Spitzer, Grassi Prize winner of 2010, views her wooden creations as homage to the beautiful things that nature offers – the simplest materials and the simplest shapes mirroring the indomitable force of constant recurrence.
Her necklaces of discs sawn from thin branches reflect the growth of a tree, seeming to expand from the perfect surface of tiny slices of veneer into the three-dimensionality of space.
The fabulous paper-folding technique which the Dutch jewellery artist Nel Linssen has developed and used since the early 1970 brings forth creations of timeless relevance – bracelets and necklaces assuming variegated and unexpected shapes and tinges of colour as the wearer moves or the light changes.
Owing to the vitality and lightness and the high aesthetic quality of the works, the wearers experience the spiralling neck chains composed of folded paper elements in bright and variegating tones of blue, red and yellow as a highly pleasurable experience. The selection at the exhibition gives an insight into the enormous variety that Nel Linssen achieves with her passion for cutting and folding paper, using techniques which she has perfected to absolute mastery.
Flora Vagi presents chains made of richly coloured wood chips and brooches reminiscent of sea anemones compactly knitted out of fine strips of paper.
Kaoru Nakano folds Japanese ‘washi’ paper into almost weightless chains and brooches.
