« When winter veil gives way to spring awakening, it is time for continuous metamorphoses. Vanishing snow reveals sleeping nature, in the middle of melting, freezing and growing. White turns to grey, brown is suddenly green. Patient seeds in soil, waiting behind the ice. Bright light paints the colours. Delicate buds ready for bubbling blossom. Countless shapes without names. Still I won’t call them shapeless. »

EXPO ‘FLOW by Anna Norrgrann’ – OHMYBLUE!, Venezia (IT) – 29 Avril-15 Mai 2016

FLOW by Anna Norrgrann     OHMYBLUE is pleased to host the solo exhibition of the Swedish artist Anna Norrgrann

April 29th 2016 – 6.00 PM

FLOW by Anna Norrgrann   April 29th 2016 - 6.00 PM  OHMYBLUE is pleased to host the solo exhibition of the Swedish artist Anna Norrgrann.:

We are glad to present « FLOW » by Anna Norrgrann.
I’m attracted to the qualities in different kinds of metal that make them perform in various ways, depending on the treatment. I see my work as collaboration between these qualities in the material and my own technical skills. Im searching for the unexpected and aiming to set up a poetic jewellery show speaking to spectators senses rather the to the intellect.
In this exhibition Anna Norrgrann will present both works from her newest project A Flow within and a Flight from a Standard Size and also from the previous and on going project, Impulse Palette.

Anna Norrgrann - From series: The Flow within and the Flight from a Standard Size   Anna Norrgrann – From series: The Flow within and the Flight from a Standard Size

« The Flow within and Flight from a Standard Format, your most recent collection of work, tackles the commonplace paper size A4 [a European sheet that measures 8.27 x 11.69 inches.—ed.]. What is it about this subject that drew you in?
Anna Norrgrann: In a way, this project is a continuation of my previous work about creating spaces, the frame, and how you choose size and shape. A4 is something we take for granted, almost like something we think is given by nature, but it is also made up. As I thought more and more about this shape, its meaning grew and I discovered new intellectual aspects to it.
I think it’s interesting how thinking and doing come together: When I started to work with A4-sized sheets of metal in my hands, new thing added to my understanding of the shape and my own relationship to it. In the same way that children play to understand the grownup world, I think making may sometimes have the same influence on the understanding of a subject, even though I wouldn’t draw a strong line between craft and play; craft is work. 
I then wanted to investigate what would happen if A4 were put on the human body as a piece of jewelry, outside its natural context, if we then would look at it differently. »

Una bella intervista di Art Jewelry Forum ad Anna Norrgrann, in occasione della sua prossima mostra « FLOW » che inaugurerà prossimamente ad Ohmyblue. // So very happy to share with you this great interview by Olivia Shih for ART JEWELRY FORUM to Anna Norrgrann about her upcoming show « FLOW » at OHMYBLUE

Anna Norrgrann - From series: The Flow within and the Flight from a Standard SizeAnna Norrgrann – From series: The Flow within and the Flight from a Standard Size

« Anna Norrgrann, an emerging Swedish jewelry artist, is already making waves as the 2015 Graduate of the Year at Klimt02 and by exhibiting her collection of deceptively simple jewelry in the Netherlands, Spain, and China. In this interview, we talk about Anna’s favored medium of anodized aluminum, and transforming a mistake into a method. »

« Olivia Shih: You recently graduated from the HDK Academy of Design and Crafts, in Gothenburg, after studying with Karin Johansson. How has this education influenced the way you work and the work itself?
Anna Norrgrann: I think the education has made me more self-reliant in my work and made me trust my guts more, and this I am very grateful for. At HDK you are given a lot of freedom to explore and experiment and in many ways choose your own way to work. This freedom hasn’t always been easy to handle, especially not in the beginning, but in the long run it has had the good result and effect of helping me become a professional jewelry artist. »

« Anodized aluminum appears to be your favored choice of medium. What possibilities do you see in aluminum in place of traditional precious metals?
Anna Norrgrann: I started working with aluminum just as a trial and then I realized there was something intriguing and challenging in this everyday metal, not only as a sketching material, but in itself. As I worked with the metal more and more, many possibilities appeared. For example I discovered the advantage of coloring the aluminum with the anodizing technique, or how I could transform the surface of the metal to make the color appear different. The low-density process gave me the possibility to work in a bigger scale; meanwhile, the anodizing process makes the surface very strong and this also enabled me to work with thin sheets of aluminum.
Let me put it like this: I did not expect as much from aluminum as from precious metals, and I think that was something that made me curious. »

« At times subtle and at times striking, color plays an essential role in your work and evokes a range of emotions. How did your relationship with color evolve?
Anna Norrgrann: I’m experimenting with color and because I don’t come from a painting background, I don’t have too much respect for color. I believe this is not a disadvantage. To me it’s a representation of moods, feelings, and fascination, among other things. Using the anodizing technique the way I do requires focus and quick decisions and it’s a great way to capture reflections and impulses. Sometimes when a certain color combination appears, I travel in time, remembering something I have forgotten. This process has a lot to with presence and sometimes the presence is very colorful and sometimes it’s monochrome. «

« « The color flows in the forged surface and together with the format it evokes landscape, feelings and memories. Known and unknown.
A4, in this work, is meant to be worn on the body. I let it become a piece of jewelry with simple methods, drilling a hole, threading a string, tying a knot. When something normal to us is put in a new context or wrong context, it might be the first time we actually see it. » Anna Norrgrann

Anna Norrgrann works and studied in Gothenburg, Sweden and took her master degree in jewellery art at HDK, School of Design and Crafts 2015.

EXPO ‘Read and Worn: Jewelry from Books’ – RR Gallery, NY (USA) – 10 Mars-30 Avril 2016

RR Gallery -  Very excited for our next exhibit — Read and Worn: Jewelry from Books

March 10 – April 24!! (extended to April 30)

 RR Gallery - 2016

Work from Jeremy May, Flora Vagi, Shiri Avda, Kiwon Wang, and Katherine Richmond
Shown: « Four Fantastic Tales » by Jeremy May

The Gallery at Reinstein|Ross is proud to present “Read and Worn” an exhibition featuring the work of five international artists who transform the pages of books and newspapers into unique works of wearable art jewelry. These artists are storytellers, who utilize the printed word as their form of expression. Whether using publications in their entirety, or simply using a few sheets of print, these artists give new life to the printed page. In the spirit of “intellectual recycling”, discarded newspapers and old books – literature, history and news – are given a second chance as bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and rings. Paper has long been a popular material for the creation of art, with artists often hand-making their own paper. Using the pages of books, newspapers, encyclopedias, however, is a recent trend, ironically spurred by the popularity of e-readers and online publications, and thus the abandonment of the printed and bound book.

Flora Vagi brooches at RR Gallery: Flora Vagi brooches

Hungarian artist Flora Vagi loves the smell of old books. Collecting old books, she removes the pages to create brooches inspired by marine life and floral forms. Vagi’s multilayered brooches are organic and curvilinear, just the opposite of the original structured and bound books. Vagi refers to her work as “intellectual recycling”, she enjoys knowing that these books, once found on someone’s shelf, have gone from inhabiting a private space to a public one when worn on the body. Vagi, is a celebrated art jeweler who often works with wood. In “Read and Worn” she will show her paper jewelry in the United States for the first time. 

Kiwon Wang neckpieceKiwon Wang neckpiece

Since childhood, Korean artist Kiwon Wang, has been inspired by paper. Not only is paper used freely in Korean domestic architecture, but growing up, her family always had an extensive library of books. Encouraged to “find out who she is”, while in graduate school at the Rhode Island School of design, it was obvious to Wang that paper, pearls, and metals were going to be her materials. Even now, printed paper is Wang’s material of choice. Wang chooses articles from old newspapers to create necklaces, brooches, and bracelets. Most of her pieces are adorned with pearls, the lustrous gems prized for their beauty in both Western and Eastern cultures. Wang is attracted to spherical forms, not just because this shape represents the earth but also because process of recycling is circular. 

work from Jeremy Maywork from Jeremy May

Jeremy May  paper ring: Jeremy May  paper ring

London-based artist Jeremy May purchases books from his local thrift store. After reading each one, he chooses a story that inspires him the most and turns it into a wearable sculpture.  May selects the pages that he carefully removes from the book, laminating as many as a hundred sheets together, then applies a high gloss finish before reinserting the jewelry into the excavated space within the book. Through his jewelry May hopes to give books a “new lease on life” and inspire people to fall in love with them all over again.

 Shiri Avda, “Rock Paper Scissors” Rings: Shiri Avda, “Rock Paper Scissors” Rings

Israeli native Shiri Avda in her work “The Mechanism of Reading” aspires to provoke the viewer with an experience equivalent to reading and leafing through the pages of an old book. Her objects, meant to be both worn and displayed on the wall, are carved from discarded books and embellished with an old lace pattern. Her second series, “Rock Paper Scissors” is inspired by the “world of texture and color” in the printed word. Avda does not conceal the typeface here, instead choosing to reveal the beauty of the printed pages that she takes from antique books and atlases. A fan-like shape – a flourish of paper -  is often used in her pendants, rings, and brooches.  

Katherine Richmond  Brooch: Katherine Richmond  Brooch

British artist Katherine Richmond trained as a jeweler and silversmith but her Graduate thesis at the School of Jewellery, Birmingham City University, UK prompted her to explore working with alternative materials, including books. Richmond utilizes pages from multi-volume Victorian journals and books, focusing on illustrations which she believes are rarely ever seen by the public, to create multi-layered and highly detailed brooches, necklaces, and pendants. Unlike the rest of the artists in the exhibition, Richmond’s jewelry is full of strong images by which she creates her own narrative. She “uses books as a symbol of permanence and longevity to create wearable objects with a fragility that questions traditional notions of wear-ability.” Paper, she says, is a lot more durable then people think it is.

There is nothing to be afraid of by Jorge Manilla Exhibition  /  21 Apr 2016  -  08 May 2016 - Centre del Carme - Carrer del Museu 2 46003 -  Valencia SPAIN:

 

« Thinking and reflecting about different life situations, i have been asking myself about what is the beginning and what is the end. We are dealing all the time with this two concepts in  our feelings, emotions, relationships, situations and even the life. When something ends what  are the memories we keep? And when something start are we talking about a real start or it is just the contination of other end. I started working in this project shameless and giving myself to you as the most fragile person. I have been afraid but getting into my creative process I was trying to come as close i can to my psychological recognition.
Using  the act of burning in a methaphorical way as symbol of purification. I made my own compositions of textures representing emotions, feelings, situations and frame it to keep the moment, just a moment, never pretending to define anything and giving to you this moment to find and recognize your own memories,as ghosts of the past and burn it.
In this project I am as a Phoenix rising again and again from the death  from the ashes of my own emotions without being afraid because I know  and each end I always reborn and start my new beginning. «

Cathexis is:
a thread, the energy that moves along it becomes a memory, which is like a reflection of you
a thread, when braided develops your deepest desires
a thread, when cut stays to remind you of your loss
a thread, the pattern of its weave reveals your individuality
the thread of life
 
’Cathexis’ is a small selection of the jewellery and blacksmithing department students’ latest works.The department of metal art includes two specialities: jewellery and blacksmithing. In the curricula, the main emphasis is laid on creative projects and critical contextualisation, enabling students to orientate in a rapidly changing cultural space while maintaining a perceptual subjectivity. Inquiring mindset and good craftmanship skills are essential for students in Department of Jewellery and Blacksmithing.

 My contemporary jewelry collection in an exhibition !!!

Thanks to Antonio Sánchez García and to all the EASD Valencia team, what was dreamed two years ago after drinking some « Valencia’s water » (not water at all ….. ;-) …) will become reality very soon …..
About 80 jewels from my collection (brooches, neckpieces, bracelets) in 4 themes (« Black envy« , « All Whites« , « Get the Blues » and « Red (thread) » will be displayed, separated by a stream of  about 60 rings …… Was VERY hard to do a choice (galeria Tossal is not big …) !!!

Of course jewels by the « better » actual jewellers (Christophe Burger, Sébastien Carré, Edu Tarin (Talente Prize 2016), François Pereña, Patricia Lemaire, Marianne Anselin, Teresa Faris, Maria Rosa Franzin, Philip Sajet, Noon Passama, Jorge Manilla, Gaetano Pesce, Gigi Mariani, Liana Pattihis, Marta Mattsson, Ramon Puig Cuyas , etc etc ……..) but also by all the youngs newly graduates  (my favourite field of investigations !  ….) from the better jewelry schools (Alchimia in Italy, Idar Oberstein in Germany, Massana in Spain, Afedap or HEAR in France, Suny New Palz in USA …..).

I’m VERY proud &  filled with emotion to share my choices and to give back to these jewellers, I hope, the pleasure they gave me.

The exhibition, titled « PASSION BIJOU(x) », will be held in Galeria Tossal, Valencia (Spain) from April 21 to May 22 2016, during the MELTING POINT jewelry event that occurs every two years in the city of Valencia.
