 Jorge Manilla Obscure sacrifice

By creating  jewellery Jorge Manilla investigates his environment - religion, emotions, relationships and the meaning of life.
Manilla has a professional background as a boxer and butcher. He observes violence and cruelty pragmatic and objective and his jewellery often express a brutal rawness –
The last years the artist  re discovered his love for the black color, wich has been a constant in his life
And since 2010 Manilla translate the rawness of life in materials
For Jorge black relates to the hidden, the secretive and the unknown, and as a result it creates an air of mystery. It keeps things bottled up inside, hidden from the world
With his dark forms and shapes he creates a barrier between the meanings of the objects and the outside world
Black implies self-control and discipline, independence and a strong will, and giving an impression of authority and power.
Manilla think that black is the end, but the end always implies a new beginning.
When the light appears, black becomes white, the color of new beginnings
The work of Jorge are beautiful punches that hit the viewer in solar plexus.

« “The emotional element which gives an obsessive value to communal existence is death.” 
George Bataille
In 2010, I  began to work on my series “Only Memories”and “Dust of a Broken Love”, which were inspired by the deepest feelings and fears that we usually avoid, I tried to show with this work the moral and corporeal anatomy of the human soul.
 Since then, I’ve developed series in which I explore the darker side of human beings.
 With series like “Pain”, “Melancholia”, “Contemporary Savagery” and “Morbid Moves” .
I’ve researched  and reflected on  topics such as death, life, love, feelings, emotions in both the psychological and physical aspects of people.                                                                   
With “Oscure Sacrifice” ,  I seek  to confront  elements of  my previous work with a more positive human outlook. Preserving the mystery and abstractness of the dark side, I want to create new  forms that  originate  a feeling of hope.
Shapes and material serve as translators of my thoughts, in my creative process through materials I strive to penetrate in the dark side of the society we live in and then represent an idealized – less  negative image of a society that in the last years has produced mass murders, not only physical but emotional and intellectual.
My latest pieces are images born out of the dream of darkness, of hope or solely my instinct. »  Jorge Manilla
