COUP de COEUR : Selen OZUS bodies & portraits

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Selen OZUS (TR),Turquie (TR) — bijoucontemporain @ 23:24

Selen Özus  jewelry …. like little sculptures, like drawings to wear …. importance of the body represented

 Selen Özus was born in Istanbul, Turkey in 1983. She got her BFA in Ceramic and Glass Design in Mimar Sinan Fine Art University, and completed a three year Jewellery Program in Alchimia Contemporary Jewellery School, Florence, Italy. She took classes from Peter Bauhuis, Manfred Bischoff and Ruudt Peters during her education in Alchimia. Selen Özus, attended various exhibitions in Europe and Istanbul, is living in Istanbul now and working as an instructor at Maden Contemporary ​Jewellery Studio which is founded by herself with her colleague Burcu Büyükünal.
Selen Ozus Jewelry
« I am gliding on an emotional air and trying to understand my feelings such as anger, love, and sorrow. I am also inspired by human body and the conditions it is involved like simple daily life and intricate relationships to other people.
My works are my memories. They are little sculptures that carry poetic and ironic stories. I share my memories with people when my pieces are worn. Then every piece starts having new memories. This is why I make jewelry.
I usually convey my expreriences through my illustrations first. It works like a therapy for me. I develop my jewelry by carrying my illustrations to the materials I like, especially silver, iron, and porcelain. I use silver like a canvas, pure and white, I fire and texture it to express a drawing quality. I also enjoy joining the darkness and heaviness of the iron with the fragile but robust nature of porcelain.
When I am working I dive into a wonderful world full of surprises. I feel safe in the loneliness of my creative process and express my feelings as outloud as possible.«

EXPO ‘Broken memories, precarious links’ – CODA Museum, Apeldoorn (NL) – 21 Sept. 2014 – 25 Janv. 2015

Classé dans : CODA Museum (NL),Exposition/Exhibition,TOTA RECICLADOS (RA),VIDEO — bijoucontemporain @ 0:10

Broken memories, precarious links

Assembled jewellery by Tota Reciclados

Fragments of old jewellery and everyday objects, bits of fabric, photos, illustrations and other memorabilia; they lie around unused and rarely looked at in kitchen drawers, nightstands or boxes in the attic. But they are not thrown away. After all, they tell personal stories or represent precious memories.


Broken memories, precarious links
During their stay in Amsterdam, Tota Reciclados – formed by Argentinian designers Valeria Hasse and Marcela Muñiz – invited neighbours, artists and students to donate these kinds of objects and materials and to share the stories attached to them. They used the materials they were given in jewels that together make up a collection. In return each participant will get back a specifically designed piece of the final collection, including part or all the material they left behind, mixed with other material.

As a conclusion to this project, the collection will be exhibited in CODA Museum.

EXPO ‘… AND THE ARCHITECT IS STILL FACING HIS JARDIN INTÉRIEUR’ – Platina Gallery, STOCKHOLM (SE) – 27 Nov.-23 Dec. 2014

Classé dans : Andrea WAGNER (NL),Exposition/Exhibition,Gal. Platina (SE),Suede (SE) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:57

ANDREA WAGNER
… AND THE ARCHITECT IS STILL FACING HIS JARDIN INTÉRIEUR

The first time I met Andrea Wagner was about ten years ago in a muddy field in the Netherlands, where we worked with cows as a theme and the mud and manure as the material. Was it already there she began her series « The Architect Who Faced His Jardin Intérieur »? After that meeting, we showed Andrea Wagner’s jewellery which she then described as a passion in working experimentally with materials and giving them her own mark. She considered this vital in order to create the intriguing appearance and surfaces necessary for the tactile materiality to communicate the stories or thoughts behind her work. She started to work with bone china porcelain which consists of ca. 40% cow bone ash.
Andrea Wagner from Amsterdam is now warmly welcomed again, this time to her first solo exhibition at PLATINA. In the exhibition we will see blown up sketches and her ongoing body of work that has been followed up by a whole new group of pieces. This time with the sub-title: « … And the Architect Is Still Facing His Jardin Intérieur ». - Sofia Björkman, PLATINA 2014

Platina Gallery

… And the Architect Is Still Facing His Jardin Intérieur
« Jardin interieur »: French for the private landscape – inner garden – of our mind.
This series is about architectural forms intermeshing with nature.
The idea of blurring the separation point of what is essentially regarded as architecture and what nature also stands in as playful metaphor for facing up to secret dreams – of taking them out of their compartmentalization into separate areas and life´s time frames and weaving them into reality. Step out of seemingly unrisky choices and embrace a dream that at first seems unlikely!
This series begun after far too much house hopping and embodies the exuberant joyfulness of my at last getting my dream home. It ended an obsessive yearning for stability whilst living in instability.
Being a frequent traveller, I am quite familiar with that exciting tension of leaving the familiar stability and safe haven of home to surrendering to the insecurity of what is new whilst discovering new impressions on the way. When returning to the familiar it is with a head full of fresh perceptions that only sharpens my connection to the intimate sheltering space of home and viewing things from a new vantage. This is my connection to an intimate and safe space where all kinds of contradictions can naturally exist side by side and within each other.
Little surprise that so much inspiration for this body of work comes from places I´ve visited or want to go to.
The diversity of materials and forms in this series are like the layered impressions of an extended travel log.
Very recently the work on some new pieces has taken me into beach and other water landscapes. I myself am as little a gardener as I am a beach holiday lover, and the deeper aspect of that very recent work with more translucent glass elements as yet still eludes me…

Seulgi Kwon Wins 2014 AJF Artist Award

The Art Jewelry Forum (AJF), the nonprofit organization that supports appreciation of art jewelry worldwide, has awarded Seulgi Kwon the 2014 AJF Artist Award.

The award is given to an emerging jeweler who exhibits “poise, innovation, and individuality.”

Since 2000, AJF has been offering an artist award to recognize promise, innovation, and individuality in the work of an emerging jeweler. The AJF Artist Award is awarded to makers of contemporary art jewelry who have completed their academic/professional training and are making new work as part of their post-training career. The winner of the AJF Artist Award receives a $7500 cash prize, will have their work shown at a major international art fair with an AJF gallery supporter, and will give a short lecture. Their work will also be featured in an AJF advertisement.

The 2014 Art Jewelry Forum Artist Award (AJFAA) was awarded to Seulgi Kwon

PROUD & HAPPY for her !

« We are pleased to announce that Seulgi Kwon has been selected to receive the 2014 Art Jewelry Forum Artist Award for an emerging jeweler. Kwon was chosen from 123 entries representing 27 countries. She will receive a $7500 cash award, and her work, along with that of the other 4 finalists, will be featured by Platina Gallery at Handwerksmesse, which takes place in Munich in March 2015. Kwon will also receive a one-year professional membership to AJF and will serve as a juror for the 2015 Artist Award competition.

The goal of the AJF Artist Award is to acknowledge promise, innovation, and individuality in developing jewelers. This year’s competition was open to art jewelry makers 35 years of age or younger who were not enrolled in a professional training program; submitted work had to have been completed between 2012 and 2014. The jurors were Sooyeon Kim, jewelry artist and winner of the 2013 award; Carin Reinders, director of the Coda Museum, Apeldoorn, Netherlands; and Karen Rotenberg, founder and director of Alianza Contemporary Craft and a collector of contemporary jewelry. Criteria used in judging were originality, depth of concept, and quality of craftsmanship.

Kwon uses the theme of plant images to express meanings and symbols of memories of her daily life. Plants change their form at each stage of growth: seeds sprout, spread roots, and bloom. This course of change gives rise to unpredictable organisms and organic forms. Kwon’s work actively expresses the organic movements of plants, with their mysterious colors and constantly changing forms, creating texture with the materiality and transparency of silicone. Kwon tries to express the living in her work, so most of her pieces have rich colors and unique shapes.

Carin Reinders stated, “Seulgi uses silicone, glass, and pigments with great beauty and poetic transparency. The brooch A Soft Rain has the softness and the vulnerability of the first soft and refreshing drops. Deep in the Night gives the awareness of a night in the jungle with the great emerald green stone, glowing in the dark. Seulgi’s work has great poetic power and classical elements, but is constructed in a very contemporary way.” Sooyeon Kim commented, “Because of Seulgi’s deep understanding of silicone as a material, it seems like she has power over the material. This would not be possible without ceaseless study. Her exotic forms and bright colors have a special fascination.” Ms. Rotenberg added, “Seulgi demonstrates an innovative and beautiful use of material; her work is visually compelling.”

Kwon earned a bachelor’s (2007) and a master’s (2010) of fine arts metalwork and jewelry at Kookmin University, Seoul, Korea. » (AJF)

Take a HORSE, get a conversation piece …….

Take a HORSE, carefully cut it in pieces, and you get a neck-piece ….. no, a conversation-piece …..

for my part, I was fan of  THIS « Horses » ! :

Izabella Petrut -  "Blood on the ground" necklace – plastic toy, acrylic paint, copper, silk thread, varnish, 2013 Izabella Petrut -  « Blood on the ground » necklace – Innocent project – plastic toy, acrylic paint, copper, silk thread, varnish, 2013

The “Innocent” project gives me the chance to express an issue I am very much concerned with: the abuse against animals. The plastic toys are a way of representing an innocence that can only imply the horrible things that could / might have happened. I cut the animal toys the way butchers do, whilst others I use in twisted positions. After that I melt them, creating situations that I imagine they end up in. I paint them in lively colors that are not specific to those animals and this way the first impression of the audience is of a happy piece of jewelry and only then, after a closer examination, they truly see the animal and its suffering. Most of them are hand painted so that every brush stroke I make allows me to connect with that animal and feel it’s pain. The electroformed pieces represent the animals that live in cold metal cages, while the silk represents a natural material that stands for blood (red silk) and the darkness of the night (black silk). By creating more feminine pieces of jewelry I am trying to nurture those animals’ suffering.
1% of all money made from selling these pieces of jewelry will be donated to an animal shelter.
Materials: plastic toys, electroformed, alpaca, silver, paint, varnish, onyx, silk, pigments, copper, gold leaf. Izabella Petrut

COUP de COEUR : Isabella LIU – mended jewels

Classé dans : Chine (CN),COUP DE COEUR,Isabella LIU (CN/UK) — bijoucontemporain @ 2:12

Isabella Liu, discovered at JOYA 2014, where she was one of the finalists at Enjoia’t Estudiant award 2014.

You first see white porcelain pieces, like teapots, broken, and mended with gold lines …. and then you discover that, opening the piece, the « mending » is in fact a jewelry piece …. I found it so poetic ….

 Isabella Liu, Pieces, 2014Isabella Liu, Pieces, 2014 - Mending- One Brooch in a Midi Ceramic Pottery, 2014 – Ceramic, gold plated metal – 13 x 10.4 x 3.9 cm -  Object and jewellery

« Inspired by Japanese art of Kintsugi and her design philosophy, Isabella Liu believes that anything suffering damage has it’s potential to become more beautiful. In the ‘Mending’ collection, she has chosen to focus on broken and fragile objects, utilising narrative approaches and designs a set of ceramic tableware. Instead of hiding their damaged areas she opted to celebrate and highlight their fragility into a wearable piece of art of a sculptural form and giving them a new life. She pushes the boundary of object and jewellery. The golden crack is intended to be appreciated both on the body as a piece of jewellery as well as off within the porcelain as a piece of museum art in their own right, which engages audiences by transforming the piece. Isabella regards the design and creation of her work as a form of meditation and process of cultivation. She explores the spiritual belief by celebrating the factures of broken objects and the fragility of life. Changing our perspectives about life’s challenges, and engages with audiences mending with joy and peace, and then beauty and enlightenment can transpire from them.«

« When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something’s suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful” – Billie Mobayedt Inspired from this Japanese philosophy and her personal experiences, Isabella Liu has chosen to closely focus on broken and fragile objects. She collected a large number of broken and abandoned objects such as barks that had fallen from trees in a cemetery, broken china from vintage markets, etc. Liu examined these items in order to discover where they were broken. Instead of hiding their damaged areas she opted to illuminate them and resultantly transforming their fragility and cracks into a real piece of art and giving them a new life. Isabella regards the creation processes of jewellery as a method of self-cultivation. She recognizes the cracks and fragilities of life and is able to transform injuries and imperfections into beauty. In the ‘Mending’ collection, she presents this inspirational and hopeful belief that by changing our thinking about life’s injuries and by mending them with joy and peace, beauty and illumination can transpire from them.«

COUP de COEUR : Natalie Lee ‘Wired Wearables’

YOUTH MOVEMENT! NINE NEW GRADUATES -  ( bangle by Natalie Lee, a graduate from Birmingham School of Jewellery.)YOUTH MOVEMENT! NINE NEW GRADUATES -  ( bangle by Natalie Lee)

Natalie Lee, Birmingham School of Jewellery, 1st Class Honours, crafts Wired Wearables a collection of dramatic arm and neckpieces. An extension of her drawings, the fluid lines in steel are skilfully manipulated using a PUK welder and then enamelled in deep greys with highlights of powder blue and mauve. The continuous play of light and shadow the pieces cast when worn “symbolise the transit of time, a progression representing both the past and the future.” she says.

September 2011- July 2014 : BA (Hons) Degree, Jewellery & Silversmithing, School of Jewellery, Birmingham City University, UK.

Natalie Lee - Drawing with Wire - sculptural neckpiece with abstract 3D shapes Natalie Lee – Drawing with Wire – sculptural neckpiece with abstract 3D shapes

Drawing with line, Natalie’s work centres around encapsulating narrative concepts; using her own photographs and line drawings as basis for generating shapes, Natalie works in a spontaneous manner which is apparent from the end result. Using a PUK welder, a tool to weld two pieces of wire together, she manipulates wire as a line, effectively drawing with the PUK welder; drawing 3D linear shapes which hold a personal memory of her own.
Natalie’s jewellery features as a series of wearable sketches, creating a collection of moving shadows on the body, The play of light and shadow symbolising the transit of time, a progression representing both the past and future, The personal journey narrated through the pieces concerns a transformation from one phase of life to another; a move which is manifest geographically, The commencement of the journey is now forgotten and the destination yet to be realised; the shadows, colour and light represent moments of the journey. These fragments are juxtaposed and presented as a continuous line/series of shapes.
The past is coloured black, a colour of mourning for the past, The use of light blue and white is in direct contrast; colours which are more positive and open in their symbolism, indicating the future and her ambitions. (KathLibbert Jewellery Gallery – Youth Mouvement)
