Demitra Thomloudis

« Our bodies perpetually occupy the built environment. My work attempts to reverse these roles and interactions by allowing the visual language found within constructed spaces an opportunity to intimately coexist and inhabit the body. I examine and challenge formal architectural organization and its materials in an attempt to redefine and elevate its presence within the construct of jewelry. As artifact my jewelry captures a moment between material, time and place that purposefully interacts with human form. By relating to the aesthetics of architecture in this way I see jewelry having the potential to connect us closer to the world we are surrounded by. » (actually exhibited (and sold) at Alliages)

« REVEALED COLLAPSE attempts to analyze the point of disjunction associated with its materials, construction, and the composition itself.  The necklaces exude the strong presence of actual line, which, when worn, surrounds the body and lies in tension with the softness of the figure. Moments within the line structure are highlighted with color, volume and irregularity, which act as ornament within the necklace itself.  With these pieces, I am interested in the body’s physical coexistence with the constructed form and how the interaction with the wearer activates and completes the work. «

« RECONSTRUCT is a collection of jewelry inspired by the fragmentary aesthetic of informal architectural construction, temporary spaces and bricolage. This work exemplifies a particular act of making, where materials are curated, constructed and remnants from the maker are celebrated. Through the lens of jewelry and changes in scale, weight, and texture, these assemblages ask the viewer to consider new associations to raw construction materials and their intimate relationship to the body as adornment. «

« REMNANTS implements the structural language of the urban built environment.  Hand fabricated out of steel, sterling silver and embellished with  graphite pencil, my work borrows and deconstructs the organization and materials of constructed spaces. Within these simple forms ornament is described and invented through the simplicity of an edge, a sand paper mark or the junction of the materials themselves. »

EXPO ‘Territoires de l’Innovation’ – INMA, Paris (FR) – 10 Mars-31 Aout 2015

Territoires de l’Innovation, galerie de l’Institut National des Métiers d’Art  (Viaduc des Arts, 23 av. Daumesnil 75012 Paris)

 "Territoires de l'Innovation", 10/03 - 31/08/2015,

A l’occasion des

Journées Européennes des Métiers d’Art  (27-28 et 29 Mars) :

Métiers d’art et innovation vous semblent a priori incompatibles? Venez découvrir les dernières créations des artisans d’art au sein de la galerie de l’INMA ! L’exposition Territoires de l’Innovation présente cette capacité qu’ont les métiers d’art à se renouveler. Les professionnels détournent les matières comme Sébastien Carré et ses bijoux en pellicule photographique ou encore le bois gonflable et retro-éclairé des ébénistes d’ARCA. Quant à Luce Couillet, elle repousse les limites de la création textile en imaginant un tissage de bois. Penser différemment les espaces avec l’Ecritoire Plug-In de Pierre Mandile, mi-paravent mi-écritoire.
S’adapter aux avancées technologiques, c’est aussi les utiliser pour mettre au point de nouveaux procédés comme Célia Pascaud qui s’aide de Google Earth pour reproduire à l’échelle une chaine de montagne en verre.
Faire la liaison entre innovation et patrimoine, c’est cette caractéristique que met lumière l’exposition Territoires de l’Innovation. Présenter des artisans qui réinventent les métiers d’art comme Lucas de Staël et ses montures de lunettes en acier, pierre et cuir. Sa dernière création : Vivarium, une monture en peau d’iguane.
Repousser les limites et les capacités des objets du quotidien comme Renaud Gruss et le Coruss. Cette fibre synthétique remplace le crin de cheval classique que l’on retrouve sur les archets sans ses inconvénients. Le vélo Alérion combine parfaitement cette double nature, sculpture fonctionnelle, il prend des allures d’aigle sous les doigts du Meilleur Ouvrier de France en sculpture sur bois, Charles Boulnois et de Keim Éditions.
Pas moins d’une quinzaine de pièces venues de toute la France seront exposées à la galerie de l’INMA, et ce, jusque fin août.

Sébastien Carré - bracelet Le Réveil de Dunn © Milo Lee PhotographySébastien Carré – bracelet  »Le Reveil de Dunn » © Milo Lee Photography

« Les bijoux de Sébastien Carré racontent une histoire, celle de la poésie du corps. Un récit parfois douloureux mais cathartique. En s’inspirant des étapes de l’acceptation de la maladie (qui sont similaires à celles du Deuil décrites par Elisabeth Kübler Ross),  « Inflammation Noire » représente la 4ème  phase, celle de la dépression. Chaque élément de cette création est porteur de symbole, le matériau principal utilisé est de la pellicule de film qui provient du cinéma où le jeune bijoutier se rendait étant enfant. Le film employé (« Le goût des Autres » – d’Agnès Jaoui) permet d’évoquer le problème de communication avec l’entourage.

La pellicule de film c’est le souvenir, ou comment fixer l’instant, se remémorer. Inflammation Noire est la représentation de ce souvenir d’avant la maladie. En voulant jouer sur l’ambivalence, Sébastien Carré a imaginé un collier à plusieurs facettes. D’un côté il peut être doux et hypnotisant, de l’autre piquant et douloureux comme peuvent l’être les souvenirs. L’idée étant de créer un poids sur les épaules par un objet qui au contraire serait très léger.
Le « Le Reveil de Dunn » est un bracelet qui fait également la part belle aux symboles. A l’heure de la virtualité, Sébastien Carré nous entraine dans un monde sensoriel. Afin de réveiller notre corporalité, il pousse le spectateur à se confronter également à des sensations désagréables, gênantes. Mais ce ne sont que des sensations transitoires. Le jeune bijoutier nous apprend à apprécier les choses qui nous entourent grâce au Réveil de DUNN. Une fois enfilé et que la sensation désagréable s’est évaporée, le bracelet se fait doux et agréable, comme une deuxième peau.«

DECOUVERTE at SCHMUCK 2015 : Jim BOVE – The Drawing series

Jim Bové is a practicing artist and educator living just outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He is an Associate Professor at California University of Pennsylvania. Jim has organized and curated several international exhibitions and lectures between the United States and Japan, including the cross-cultural exchange, Metalsmiths Linking. In 2011 Jim’s artwork was selected for Metalsmith magazine’s Exhibition in Print. His artwork has been featured in several books, including Lark Book’s 500 series, Humor in Craft by Brigette Martin and most recently in 500 Art Necklaces. His artwork resides in collections in the United States, Japan, the Dominican Republic, and Malaysia. Member of SNAG

 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. »

Jim Bové drawing series broochDrawing Series: Brooch – Awarded Honorable Mention, Cheongju International Craft Biennale, Cheongju, South Korea. 2013 Industrial auto paint on die formed copper with patina. 2012

« 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. «
