Jane Dodd: Rococo Revolution
Opening Reception: Friday January 23, 6-8 pm

Jane Dodd: Rococo Revolution

 

Inspired by a recent tour of European museums, palaces, and treasure houses, Jane Dodd: Rococo Revolution illustrates the artist’s simultaneous experience of seduction and repulsion to the sumptuous and decadent housing of these elite collections. Referencing a contemporary interpretation of the late Baroque aesthetic, Dodd’s meticulously carved bone and wood pieces take the form of wearable objects, each representing symbolic elements drawn from the natural world.  According to the New Zealand based artist:

Rococo Revolution… illustrates my discomfort with the way we hoover up wildlife and environment for our own frivolous ends. With these pendants I want to honor the simple, elegant forms of the animal world. The subject of the brooches is the battle between nature and culture. The collection of works pays homage to the crazy and rich craft traditions of the Rococo Age.

Tarja Tuupanen is a master of stone. Out of agate, granite, marble and quartz she brings out shapes that reveals the raw soul of the stone and tells its history. The work is a sensitive investigation and her love for the material is unmistakable.
The material has always been a raw block of stone, but recently Tuupanen has started to use ready-made marble tableware; a tacky candleholder or saltshaker from the 80s. Industrially made object triggers the creative process. The most interesting things in these stones are man made instead being natural; green stickers, tool marks, stains, wax. The tableware has been used and it has a history of its own with cultural references.
Tuupanen lives and works in Lappeenranta Finland. She has graduated as MFA in 2013 from Konstfack, University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, Stockholm, Sweden. Tuupanen has exhibited internationally since 1998, the last solo exhibition was in 2012 in Gallery Ida, Tallinn, Estonia. She has been the chairwoman of Finnish Art Jewellery Association between 2005-2012.

Kimiaki Kageyama is one of the most important Japanese Master Goldsmiths. He did a workshop at Alchimia school about « Japanese traditional copper alloys and coloring‘ (2013). In Japan, coloring metals has been experimented since 4th~5th century.  Direct coloring began around the end of the Heian period (794-1185) but it is during the Muromachi period (1330-1568) that the development of various kinds of copper alloys suitable for coloring flourished.

ANTON CEPKA – KINETIC JEWELRY Anton Cepka – Kinetic Jewelry – brooch (detail)

The jewelry and object artist Anton Cepka is one of the most important jewelry makers of the 20th century. Born in 1936 in Sulekovo, Czechoslovakia – now Slovakia – Cepka was a leading exponent of the modern jewelry after World War II. Today he is respected as the doyen of both Slovakian and Czech jewelry artists. Thanks to a formal language reminiscent of Constructivism, he remained untroubled by affairs of state over many years – unlike many fellow artists.
Silver, optical glass and modern acrylic glass are Anton Cepka’s preferred materials. Out of these, brooches and pendants take shape which embody novel spatial ideas. Tending at first towards relief, they are later conceived fully in the round. Then the surprise – the elements of movement and light are added, introducing the concept of kinetic art to the art of jewellery for the first time.
The actual construction of the objects demonstrates the high degree of craftsmanship which is intrinsic to all of Cepkas’ work.
Thanks to many lenders, both private and institutional, from Germany and abroad, it is possible for the first time to show around 180 decorative objects by Anton Cepka, from the period between 1963 and 2005, in a single exhibition.
The exhibition takes place under the auspices of the Minister of Culture of the Slovak Republic and is supported by he Slovakian Embassy in Berlin, the Slovakian Consulate General in Munich, Arnoldsche Art Publishers, Stuttgart, Danner Stiftung in Munich and Deedie Rose, USA.

Nelly Van Oost - UNION -

Each of us forges links with someone, it is hard to explain how, yet the experience sounds so simple, natural. Between Nelly Van Oost and Jose Bravo, it just clicked, the connection was immediate: an artistic and human love at first sight. As if their paths were meant to cross. Working together sounded obvious to them. Their universes of creation complement each other and make them crossing their artistic limits.

UNION was born from this need to work together. Since August 2012, they have been exchanging, building up dialogues between photography and contemporary jewellery. Each of them, through their own specialty, values this connection. For «RENCONTRES», their first project, Jose Bravo spent 10 days capturing moments of Nelly Van Oost’s everyday life and from these pictures and time spent together, Van Oost created jewels.  In June 2014, the Spanish photographer once more entered Nelly’s universe in order to carry out the project «INSTANT». The process reversed since the latter invited him to take an artistic look at some moments of exchange during which jewels are transformed through a physical (and human) exchange between two people.

For this new step in their collaboration, Nelly Van Oost and Jose Bravo want to make the most of a place and give the opportunity for the public to discover their work. Their exhibition will be articulated around several modules, unveiling their common as well as their personal work. The theme of union will be explored to the full extent.

DECOUVERTE at SCHMUCK 2015 : Anne-Marie Rébillard

Anne-Marie Rébillard from Canada has been selected for SCHMUCK 2015 « COLLECTION TRACE : Anne-Marie Rébillard propose une réflexion sur nos considérations environnementales, sur ces nouvelles empreintes que nous laisserons aux futurs anthropologues. L’image puissante de nos déchets de plastique a insufflé à Anne-Marie un élan créatif et mutin pour produire cette actuelle collection. À ces matières synthétiques, elle intègre le bois flotté, ce bois rejeté par la Nature, en le juxtaposant et l’organisant en de petites et sensuelles sculptures portables. Anne-Marie Rébillard a suivi sa formation à l’École de joaillerie de Québec de 2001 à 2004. En 2007, elle y enseignera à temps partiel, tout en prenant part à des stages de perfectionnement. En 2010, elle s’inscrit au Labo, une série d’ateliers de recherches et d’expérimentation dirigé par Noel Guyomarc’h à Montréal. En mai dernier, son travail était sélectionné pour deux expositions importantes à Toronto. Depuis 2012, elle consacre son temps à sa passion. » (Galerie noel guyomarch)

« Anne-Marie Rébillard remporte le Prix Émergence en métiers d’art 2014 pour l’originalité et l’innovation de l’ensemble de ses créations en joaillerie, pour sa maîtrise technique, sa qualité d’exécution, la richesse des matériaux qu’elle utilise et la cohérence de sa démarche artistique. Ce prix souligne l’excellence d’un artisan créateur en pratique depuis moins de 10 ans dans les régions de Québec et de Chaudière-Appalaches. La pratique artistique d’Anne-Marie Rébillard s’inscrit dans une approche contemporaine de la joaillerie. Elle déjoue les fonctions communes du bijou, qu’elle revendique comme un médium d’expression à part entière. Mue par la volonté de décloisonner les différentes pratiques en métiers d’art, elle articule son travail autour de l’exploration de différents matériaux non traditionnels en joaillerie. Depuis le début de sa pratique en 2006, elle a travaillé non seulement les métaux précieux, mais aussi de nombreux autres matériaux, notamment le textile, le plastique et le bois. La recherche et l’expérimentation, par le dessin, mais aussi directement dans la matière, occupent une large place de son processus créatif. Elle aborde la technique librement, privilégiant l’intuition et la découverte de résultats inattendus. » (MMAQ)

DECOUVERTE pour SCHMUCK 2015 : Stanislava Grebenickova

Stanislava Grebenickova from Czeck Republic,  has been selected for SCHMUCK 2015

Stanislava Grebenickova  -Light & Shadow Brooches - Cut & Polished flat Glass  with Marble and GraniteStanislava Grebenickova  -  Light & Shadow Brooches – Cut & Polished flat Glass  with Marble and Granite

« She is one of those women, who managed to balance their job and family, who are admired for their beauty and pleasant behaviour, she is a wonderful and an attentive hostess, a lady in the best sense of the word. But first and foremost she is an excellent glass-making artist.
Stanislava Grebeníčková graduated from The high school of applied arts for glassmaking in Železný Brod and then passed the atelier of Stanislav Libenský on Academy of Arts, Architecture and Desing in Prague. The very important life experience was a scholarship at Amsterdam Academy at the famous professor`s Sybren Valkema. During her studies and immediately after graduation she highly devoted herself to a formed glass. Already at that time her objects were characterised by a humour and pop art playfulness. The first big success and at the same time very characteristic illustration of her creation of the 80s was a series of objects for the exhibition in Roztoky u Prahy (1984). As a fresh graduate at that time, she created Fishing tackle, enlarged severalfold and supplemented with metal components. It was a perfect illusion of existing realias. A precise workmanship, a bright variety of colors and a perfect reproduction of the logo of the famous firm producing fishing tackle helped her to attain an unusually strong effect. The installation overwhelmed professionals and lay public as well. Real objects in unreal size were deployed on plinths in gallery and with fishing-lines a visitor was under the impression he became Gulliver in the empire of giants.
After the creative pause, devoted above all to upbringing of children and building of family background, she started to give a thought to comeback as an active artist. She knew how much time had passed since her pop art objects and realized that she couldn`t return to this era anymore…she has already been in a different stage of life and started to look for new ways of her creative expression. She has found a clear conception of her new style very soon. She created a series of objects made from combination of stone and glass. Symptomatically called plastics The bearable weight of being or On my own two feet put visually and physically massive cube of polished granite on fragile crystal spirals from formed and shaped glass. A courage and humour these plastics are presented with, take rank with her early objects.
In the second half of 90s this glass artist became more a sculptor. This is related to a desire to make a one-piece work. Whereas her husband (M. Handl) became a pioneer of the gluing technology in glass freestyle, Stanislava was not comfortable with this. Although this technology has dominated in her jewellery creation, it doesn`t seem suitable for her big objects. More likely than a distrust of mechanical qualities of glues, it is an idea, that the sculpture in itself, both sculptural and plastic, works with an integral mass and capacity. Stanislava perceives glass as a sculptural material and desires her plastics would have an influence as a sculptural masterpieces. As a graduate from Libensky school she handles „through glass painting tools“ optics and valair as well. In this time came up for example Asylum, Secret place and Mysterious Asuka.
At the same time with freestyle creation Stanislava has been profiling as a jewellery maker since 90s. At the beginning there was as she says „women`s vanity“. A desire to decorate herself, however, turned into more deeper interest, which became an integral and interesting part of her artwork. Her brooches soon became popular, well-known and sought-after in the world of modern jewellery. Her first jewellery, created in 1993, was surprisingly made of stone – local slate. A supple and accessible material facilitated working on a lapidary machine. Later Stanislava started to splice different types of glass, carefully detrited, she spliced it and glued it. Soon, however, an available color scale stopped being satisfying and she started to combine glass with interesting stones and also to experiment with melting of her own glass plates. The color in itself was not the matter, it was rather a structure and colorful combination. Looking at these brooches we often don`t know, if it is a polished natural stone or skillfully and unrepeatably melted glass. Some glass plates, used in these unique jewellery, are so much remarkable that deny the rules of glass cohesion. They are feasible only in such tiny size and are absolutely inimitable. Jewellery of this creative artist, in spite of their size, appear very monumentally. They remind of pictures. Partly by unprecedented colorful surfaces, which themselves look like a brush texture, but also by their unconditional two-dimensionality. They are based on space illusion. Almost each of them is a small expample of optical illusion: reversible cubes, vanes, prisms, portikas and columned halls are just sofisticated colorfully-geometrical segmentation of area. And therein is a jewellery work of this author so exceptional. A smooth, glazy, accurate, very precise and compact jewellery appears optically as a fragile, plastic, vulnerable and membered. Thus, it implicilty connects the most important characteristics of modern jewellery. Potential of wearing, originality and perfect manufacturing.
At present Stanislava Grebeníčková has been teaching on Higher, Secondary and Apprentice Glass School in Nový Bor. She lives and works with her family in nearby Polevsko. » (Eliška Vavříčková – 8. 12. 20:07)

From the Coolest Corner: Nordic Jewellery presents an exciting and broad range of the contemporary studio jewellery created in the Nordic countries. From the Coolest Corner: Nordic Jewellery has a three-fold aim: to present the newest and most advanced contemporary Nordic jewellery, to intensify the discourse on today’s jewellery and strengthen the knowledge about this field, and to consolidate Nordic jewellery’s position in national and international arenas.
Jewellery will be presented in 3 different ways: a touring exhibition, a comprehensive book and an international Seminar Re-Public Jewellery, all shedding new light on the importance of this art. Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden will be the main collaborators in this project.
The touring exhibition From the Coolest Corner was opened at The National Museum – The Museum of Decorative Arts and Design in Oslo in January 2013. It then travelled to The DesignMuseum Finland in Helsinki, The Designmuseum Danmark in Copenhagen, The Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design in Tallin, The Röhsska Museum of Design and Applied Arts in Gothenburg and The Lithuanian Art Museum in Vilnius.
During “Schmuck 2015” it is shown at the Galerie Handwerk in Munich.
This main exhibition presents 159 works by 61 artists from the Nordic countries including five invited honorary artists and a selected group of artists from Estonia.
The international seminar Re-Public Jewellery will take place on March 13th at the Galerie Handwerk, 10:00-15:00.
To strengthen the interest in and knowledge of art jewellery, artistic tendencies and research within the field will be presented both in the seminar and in the book.
All these different presentations of Nordic studio jewellery together, aim at contributing to reinforce the image of contemporary Nordic Jewellery as expressive, reflexive and “cool”.
The project is a result of a cooperation between the three Norwegian partners (The National Museum –The Museum of Decorative Arts and Design in Oslo, The Norwegian Association for Arts and Crafts and Oslo National Academy of the Arts) and their associated organizers in the Nordic museums of design and decorative arts, the Nordic crafts associations and the national colleges of art and design as well as, of course, our sponsors Nordic Culture Point, Nordic Culture Fund, Arts Council Norway.
The exhibition is sponsored by the Nordic Culture Point, the Nordic Culture Fund, the Arts Council Norway and Galerie Handwerk of the Bavarian Chamber of Crafts

 Jim Bové - Ring I - drawing series 2011Jim Bové – Ring I – drawing series 2011

« The search for spontaneity in my artwork has brought me back to the sketch. Pages of drawings have been produced as I searched for new ideas to create in metal. When I looked at those drawings, my eye caught on the impression of the pen, the gesture of the pencil and the weight of the stroke. I wondered how to re-create that immediacy in wearable art. This new series of work employs a surface that allows me to work more spontaneously. Sometimes the piece evolves from a page in my sketchbook, at other times the metal is prepared and the small canvases can be carried with me so I can work the surface as I am inspired. The work is minimal and abstract. I have grown even more appreciative of abstract expressionism and artists like Robert Irwin and Antoni Tapies, especially the thought Irwin puts behind his creations. maybe because I teach design theory classes, I have come to enjoy the search for the perfect line in the perfect place. Something so simple can occupy so much effort. »

« Color satisfies the eye, line satisfies the mind »  

« The Drawing Series expresses my love for line, shape and the mark of a tool on a surface.  Inspired by minimalism and abstract expressionism, the shaped, wearable canvases allow me to explore composition.  Many of the shapes are rooted in observation.  Shadows, light, architecture, all of these become subjects to reinterpret, simplify and incorporate into my work. The pieces are intentionally un-named. They are pure composition and exist only as part of a series of drawings. By using a strong, industrial primer on formed metal I can sand and prepare the surface to a smooth, satin finish, almost silk-like to the touch.  The strength of the paint allows me to carve through, as well as draw on, the surface. A chemical patina enhances the contrast. »

« The technique The Drawing Series is a unique process that I developed.  By using an industrial auto primer, the same used in auto body shops, I create a canvas on a shaped, copper base.  The strength of the paint allows me to carved or sand through the surface.  Using the ancient technique of silver and gold point, I can draw on the surface.  A simple patina enhances the colors of the metal.  Silver turns a warm French gray, gold becomes a cool gray and copper ranges from black to brown. The pieces are very lightweight and durable. Once cured, the paint is hard, resistant to damage and easy to clean. » Making « First the copper metal is shaped. This is done using various fabrication techniques. I start by sawing the shape out. If the piece needs to be shaped, I use sinking, hydraulic die forming or folding techniques.  After the piece has been formed, I solder on any pin backs, accents or hanging hardware.  Once soldering is complete and the piece has been cleaned, I prepare auto paint by mixing a hardener and an extender into the paint. The mixed paint is applied by spray gun.  After the paint has hardened and set, each piece is wet sanded until the finish is satin in texture. Sharp scribes and chisels are used to carve through the surface.  Gold, silver and copper wires are used to draw on the painted surface.  Finally a patina is applied to enhance the color of the metals. «
