…. environnement urbain : travaux, béton, ferrailles, échafaudages, palissades, barrières, outillages, machineries, matériaux de construction, lignes, cartes, plans, routes, échangeurs, sens interdits …….. démolition, reconstruction ….  tout cet environnement, même hostile ou menaçant, fascine ….. un moment, le mouvement est arrêté, « photographié », pensé, intériorisé puis réinterprété selon chacun, retraduit, « miniaturisé » pour devenir bijou … une construction nouvelle, en quelque sorte ….

Linda Hughes Square Neckpiece and bracelet

« Colour plays a very important part in your jewellery and it is often bold and bright. Would you consider this a signature style or do see yourself moving towards a different palette in the future?
The palette relates directly to street signage but I do feel free to incorporate other colours and don’t feel inhibited by it.
What ignited your interest in signs? Was it marked by a particular experience or moment?
Some of the urban landscape in Australia seems particularly contrived, like a theatre set. A mixture of international influences all mixed up, often without connecting to the environment. My attention is drawn to signs as ‘street furniture’ if you like, ‘props’. «

Linda Hughes – Necklace

« In her new body of work, contemporary jeweller Linda Hughes explores the ‘stripe’, historically favoured as a metonym for danger, exclusion and as a device to attract attention. Hazard signage, ubiquitous in the urban landscape, changes when placed on the body as jewellery. In this exhibition, Hughes applies the visual language of the stripe to the sculptural form of the wearable. Displayed against as a series of graphic backdrops, the work explores the tension between body and environment, critiquing the complex theatre of public space. »

Linda Hughesnecklace  – « It’s got legs » exhibition

« Shared Zone, is both the culmination of Linda Hughes master’s research and her first solo exhibition.
Hughes utilises the familiar urban language of invisible everyday objects such as road signs, posts and hazard markings. Juxtaposing these symbols on the body she uses them to define space and create landscape. Her work invites the wearer to become a part of the “theater of the wearable” that arises when the brooches, neckpieces and bangles are placed so as to interact and create their roles – transforming the body into a stage. »

Benita Dekel, Massconstruction – silver & concrete (ciment)

« Benita Dekel, a graduate of the Department of Jewelry Design at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design (Israël), developed a series of jewelry pieces that combine silver with concrete. The results of the combination of concrete, which we usually associate with heavy, industrial construction, and delicate constructions in silver is that despite being made of concrete the pieces do not appear heavy. The shapes of the pieces, which are very familiar, almost as though they have been taken from various construction sites, manage to surprise both in their shape and new function«

EXPO ‘Rêves’ – galerie ALLIAGES, Lille (FR) – 8-31 Dec. 2011-

On vit tous avec un rêve, même s’il est caché au fond de nous. Un jour, POP !, il éclate au grand jour. On le cache, on le dit, on l’évite, il revient… Rêves quand il est au pluriel chez Alliages, c’est un cumul extraordinaire des pièces de rêve d’artistes.

De A comme Alba à V comme Vanneste, l’alphabet des artistes d’Alliages est prolixe. Comme leurs rêves, de tableaux, de vases, de bijoux, de sculptures, de métaux parfois précieux, de résines colorées, de verres aux reflets profonds et de terres cuites selon les techniques ancestrales …

La réalité des rêves des artistes nous mène aux confins de la joie, de l’humour, de l’étonnement mais toujours au centre de l’esthétique, de la beauté. Ils sont monochromes, ou s’illuminent de couleurs irisées. Petites ou grandes pièces de céramique, petits ou grands tableaux, petites sculptures de verre ou de métal et de résine, petits bijoux d’argent et de pierres précieuses (ou pas)… Petits et grand rêves pour petits et grands.

Petit ou grand Noël de rêve, les artistes d’Alliages ont réalisé le vôtre et celui de ceux que vous aimez. Il vous attend, venez le chercher le 8 décembre pour l’offrir le 25 et faire briller les yeux de vos tendres proches.

Le vernissage de cette brillante exposition se tiendra le jeudi 8 décembre à partir de 18H à la galerie ALLIAGES, 111, Bd Victor Hugo à LILLE. L’ambiance sera gaie, informelle et les artistes vous présenteront leurs travaux avec décontraction.

N’ayez pas peur de l’art, et des galeries, chez Alliages, c’est différent !

Le bijou est bien plus qu’un simple ornement, il est un media de rencontre. Tel un roman, il peut avec un anneau nous conter une histoire d’amour. Tel un carnet de voyage, il peut avec ses matériaux surprenants nous emmener ailleurs. Tel un pamphlet, il peut à l’aide de ses badges revendiquer.

With her unique works Saskia Detering creates suggestive and vivid pictures of warmth, cold, flowing, blossom, holding. One calls forth the other, wide outstretched calls for concentrated, colored for faded and transparent. Her mostly large-sized and massive works still have a dimension, that allows a personal access, they are „chamber music“.

Her works are set under the motto of Jacques Lipschitz „A Sculpture is actually a man made companion, with an immortal human heart within, that sends out impulses to bring us happiness, warmth and educate us all at the same time.“

COUP de COEUR : SeulGi KWON, new works 2011

Classé dans : brooches,COUP DE COEUR,Korea (KR),plastiques,Seul-Gi KWON (S.KR) — bijoucontemporain @ 1:34

Always so MAGICAL, so mysterious, so attractive !!

SeulGi KWON says :

« As root of subject matter of art, nature provided infinite possibility of creation and we created artworks based on continuous study and experience toward art from past to present. In the past, roots were selected within the scope that can be experienced visually but due to development of science technology even microscopic parts are used as subject matter of art. Together with development of natural science, visual images that were not experienced in the past were created and this helped us to cause new imagination to us. Based on these experiences, we are able to create organic form in a new viewpoint which is different from the past.
There are organisms that pursue changes while it complies to certain rule known as order and harmony within the nature. These organisms are consists of cells. Unit cells itself shows various change in forms at each stage during the course of creation, grow, division, and extinction. The course of change gives fantasy about unpredictable ‘organism’ and organic form itself of cells which are basic unit of life formation contain element of infinite fantasy.
By analyzing cell form and shape through basic element of model, we arranged shape trait of cell as line, form and color. We used it as basic shape measure and instead of reproduce it as itself we expressed 2nd dimensional image that can be considered from the subject.
We actively expressed organic movement of cell with its mysterious color and its constant changing form by using silicone which is synthetic resins as its major component, and made spectator and wearer to feel interest by texture and materiality and transparency of silicone. »

« I look at unlived second lives, something that did not happen but that could have happened. Situations seen for just a brief moment and then left waiting.

Portraits glimpsed, dreamed or only imagined.
A series of objects, real or not, accumulated and broken up to extract what is essential for me: a decorative detail or a fragment, just enough to trigger a memory.
As the Sunday photographer takes snapshots to capture the present, pursuing life as it flees, as if everything that he coudn’t photograph had never existed. Lost forever. I live the present as a future memory like a professional photographer, making it posed, manipulating reality, tries to photograph some memories, to give a body to recollection, replacing it for the present before his eyes (I.Calvino).
I catch the shape impressing the material into the mold as the photographer captures the image impressing light on the film.
All that this has been and this is what remains. This thing exists or has existed.
This is the reality and the past at the same time; an emanation of the real past: magic. »
