Coup de COEUR : Natalie Smith et ses douceurs en SUCRE

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Grande-Bretagne (UK),Natalie SMITH (UK),organics,www Klimt02 — bijoucontemporain @ 0:05

Je vais avoir l’air d’une « mémé qui radote » mais ces bijoux m’ont remis en tête un souvenir de mon enfance : Pollux, le chien du manège enchanté, qui marmonne et « ronchogne » « je veux un CHUCRE, je veux un SSSUCRE, où est passé mon SUCRE » …….. On a tous besoin de douceur(s) ! ;-)

‘From Dreams & Dust’ is a new collection that continues my work with sugar as a material. Natalie Smith

« My work explores the ideas of growth, transformation and disintegration.
I find inspiration in surrealist science fiction, which is rich in atmosphere and imagery. Many of the books describe apocalyptic landscapes and alternate worlds that are on the brink of geographical catastrophes. In these dramatic dreamscapes there are no utopias, emphasis is placed on mental explorations and evocative journeys of the isolated humans.
I create my pieces by combining permanent and temporary materials such as textiles and sugar. I like the pieces to have a constantly changing structure and once completed, begin their transient lives. Depending on how they are cared for they may dissolve in humid conditions, change colour or melt like an ice-lolly on a hot day revealing the materials underneath. The evolution of the work is something that interests me greatly. I do not attempt to try and control what happens to the pieces after they are finished. I like an element of surprise.  »
