« My work is inspired from what others often overlook. Man makes a street, a wall to control his environment, and then life – elements – slowly decompose this to bring it back to nothing. In the interim, I see beauty.»

Roxy Lentz has just finished a show on Dec. 3, Quattra4 at Louisville, all for the benefit of a worthwhile charity. Gorgeous jewelry presented there !

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 2 – Carlos SILVA – Tests and Experiments

Carlos SILVA

Expérimentation(s), expérimentation(s), & expérimentation(s) !!
D’ailleurs un de ses albums de photos s’intitule « Tests and Experiments » et on dirait que c’est vraiment ça son « leitmotiv », le « truc en plus », ce qui l’éclate ! le matière de prédilection, en tout cas celle autour de laquelle il tourne et retourne, c’est le bois …. le naturel …. auquel, petit à petit, il ajoute des « produits dénaturés » de la « civilisation » (plastiques, goudron, mousse synthétique pour déco, plâtre….)

Here are some « experiments », as an « appetizer » ! ;-)

« “A subject that is beautiful in itself gives no suggestion to the artist. It lacks imperfection.” – Oscar Wilde
In our daily lives we come across many elements that hold a hidden beauty. 
I feel I am rarely attracted by the immediate beauty of nature. It is in its minor flaws, irregularities and asymmetries I find true expression. 
 In my work I create jewelry that can translate this seemingly random nature. I use many organic shapes, and use techniques which allow me to replicate these unique shapes, their natural formations and imperfections, because therein lies their true beauty. »

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 2 – Anne DINAN – nostalgia …

Classé dans : Anne DINAN (US),COUP DE COEUR,DECOUVERTE,email / enamel,EXCHANGE-BIJOU,USA,VIDEO — bijoucontemporain @ 22:47

Anne DINAN

« (My) inspiration is nature and industry combined. What have we done? »

J’ai craqué pour le monde d’Anne Dinan -qui malgré son nom très français, nous vient des USA- il y a quelque temps, et je vous ai montré ses blancs …. au tour de ses bleus, qui m’enchantent !
Mais à part les couleurs, et peut-être plus que la couleur, l’émail cache -et dévoile, comme une photo en train de se développer- des mondes industriels « désuets » -je pense au château d’eau en métal empoussiéré du film « Bagdad Café »-,  des paysages industriels comme abandonnés, rouillés, témoins d’une Amérique empoussiérée, « from Vegas to no way » comme dit la chanson du film  …. des paysages, des visages, surgis du passé ….. séquence émotion ! (SURTOUT en écoutant « I‘m calling you » !!)

 

anne.dinan - vitreous enamel - 2014 - "Unknown Relatives" serie: Anne Dinan – vitreous enamel – 2014 – « Unknown Relatives » serie
« Unknown Relatives”  was based on a series of old portrait photographs found at a family farm in Michigan. Dinan created the 20-piece assemblage using kiln-fired vitreous enamel on copper from digital waterslide transfers »

Anne Dinan is a nationally recognized jewelry and visual artist who attended the School of Museum School of Fine Arts in Boston.
A resident of Exeter, N.H., Dinan has presented her unique and diverse pieces at a number of shows including Alchemy 3, the 2015 Enamelist Society touring exhibition at five New England galleries ; seasonal shows at the Button Factory in Portsmouth, N. H. and Pettengill Farm in Salisbury, Mass; and at
“Myths – Test Drive” in Germany at the 2016 Munich Jewellery Week show (SCHMUCK) .

« Dinan earned second place in the wall piece category of the 15th Biennial International Juried Enamel Exhibition for “Unknown Relatives,” which was based on a series of old portrait photographs found at a family farm in Michigan. Dinan created the 20-piece assemblage using kiln-fired vitreous enamel on copper from digital waterslide transfers. The pieces were mounted on wood from an old wheelbarrow.
“Unknown Relatives” also was featured in “The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes (third edition) by Dublin artist and photographer Christopher James. Dinan’s work will also be featured at galleries in Munich, Germany and Paris.
She attended the Museum School of Art in Boston. » (The Enamelist Society’s 15th Biennial International Juried Exhibition and the 11th International Juried Student Enamel Exhibition at the League of NH Craftsmen, 49 S. Main St., Concord., jan 2016)

THE BIB
« There is no day I wouldn´t get dirty. Never endless collection of bibs for public and private use, for men and women. I have started to like the topic of bibs and I am always returning to it. The inspiration comes from my own “akwardness“ and from “dirty” t-shirts in my cupboard.«

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 2 – Sébastien Carré – De coeur et de tripes …

« Sébastien Carré is a jewelry designer based in France. After studying five years at HEAR, the prestigious Art school of Strasbourg in France, he decides to stay there to keep on working on his organic jewelries. Throughout many exhibits he tries to wake up corporeality and the senses of the spectators.  »

Sébastien Carré -  Viscéral -Sébastien Carré -  Viscéral ………. 7 metres d’intestins ….

Sébastien Carré - Viscéral, 2013  Collier 7 mètres, Cotte de maille Aluminium, coton, lin, soie, cuir 7 meters Necklace, aluminum chainmail, cotton, linen, silk, leather ("+ de 187000 anneaux a la main et deux semaine de broderie intensive=près de 6 mois de travail sur cette pièce" !!): Sébastien Carré - Viscéral (porté), 2013  Collier 7 mètres, Cotte de maille Aluminium, coton, lin, soie, cuir 7 meters Necklace, aluminum chainmail, cotton, linen, silk, leather (« + de 187000 anneaux a la main et deux semaine de broderie intensive = près de 6 mois de travail sur cette pièce » !!)

« The making of these pieces of jewelry is inspired by cell mitosis. The modular process used to produce its shape, and the interactivity of materials chosen, bring forth the idea of a living organism.
The materials I use are picked in order to allow me to work despite the constraints of my disease. (eg: Crohn’s disease) Being able to work outside of the studio was definitely the most important part of this process, and textile became one of the most obvious choices of material to use during my creative process.
I am using this process to create objects to represent parts of the human body (see the seven meter necklace which represents the digestive tract), sometimes to symbolize the concept of the inflammation, or to even question our relationship with our own body and others’.
Even if we can find cathartic meaning in my pieces of jewelry, I consider them more interactive artefacts designed to help you feel your own body and to instigate discussion and thus interpersonal communication. » (Klimt02)

« Pour ma part, je suis dans un autre domaine, celui du bijou d’art, dans lequel la valeur artistique et conceptuelle compte beaucoup. Certains artistes vont même jusqu’à réaliser des bijoux quasi importables. En questionnant le rapport au corps, le bijou d’art quittera ainsi l’espace du musée, d’une galerie, en trouvant un nouvel espace d’exposition, celui du corps, qui n’a jamais connu une telle mise en valeur que dans notre société de l’image. ….. J’ai été diplôme en juin 2014, après 5 ans d’études à la Haute Ecole des Arts du Rhin (HEAR) …. C’est également grâce à mon Erasmus à l’Escola Massana de Barcelone, que j’ai réussi à gagner en autonomie » (Les Pulpeuses)

rencontres-sebastien-carré « Quelles sont les matières que tu utilises pour signifier l’organique ?
« Tout peut potentiellement être utilisé, métal, papier, cuir, textile, pierre semi-précieuses… Je cherche cependant des éléments qui me permettent d’amener du sens à mes bijoux. J’ai par exemple utilisé de la pellicule de film pour évoquer les souvenirs responsable de la dépression. Le cuivre est souvent employé pour symboliser l’inflammation car il est traditionnellement employé comme anti-inflammatoire (déjà chez les Aztèques…); L’acier inoxydable me permet de symboliser le monde médical; le nylon évoque quant à lui la présence humaine; et les pierres semi précieuses sont généralement choisies en fonction des théories de Naturopathie qui leurs sont associées. Ma seule constante est désormais de créer la structure de ces bijoux par l’emploi de techniques associées aux textiles sur lesquels je viens appliquer ces différents éléments comme un cancer colonisant un organe. Tout l’intérêt étant de jouer sur la préciosité des matières au niveau de la représentation de la partie malade afin de faire réfléchir sur nos questionnement occidentaux lié à la préciosité. Ainsi j’essaye de montrer que l’on peut trouver du bon et de la beauté dans toute situation (même les pires) parfois en changeant simplement de façon de penser ou en changeant de point de vue. »  (Le Polyèdre – rencontres avec Sébastien Carré)

 Ansiosa Hormona (Jessica Morillo)Ansiosa Hormona (Jessica Morillo)

« Esta linea de joyería textil propone la igualdad entre sexos, ya que siempre que pensamos en un accesorio la referencia principal es femenina.
Quebrar la idea de que un hombre no puede usar un collar y que tampoco estamos acostumbrados a esto , cambiar la visión convencional y que esto no cuestione la sexualidad de quien lo porta.

Estos objetos/collar/cuello, esculturas portables unifican en color pero desestructuran en formas tanto para hombre y mujeres.
De morfología orgánica se ubica alrededor del cuello, toma recorridos irregulares asimétricos donde varia su tamaño y volumen se transforma en engarses textiles haciendo un paralelo con la técnica de joyería tradicional de engarse de piedras y luego termina cruzando texturas.
Partir de concepto de igualdad para reflexionar y cuestionarse como socialmente estamos parados y que nos lleva al prejuicio de la sexualidad y cuanto tiene que ver eso con lo que portamos, lo que usamos, vestimos.
Las estructuras sociales duras históricas que nos heredan maneras viciadas de percibir, de vivir la realidad, nos condicionan, limitan a poder liberar el deseo de elegir vestirnos sin condicionamientos hombres mujeres, heterosexuales, homosexuales y bisexuales.
Esta colección tiene como objetivo la resolución estética de piezas textiles distinguidas, desestructuras, únicas e irrepetibles pero también generar un pregunta referente a la igualdad y a la libertad de elección sea de cualquier tipo. »

 » La pieza presentada es parte de un proceso de trabajo de dos años que a modo ritual, lento, repetitivo fui desarrollando, cortando mis prendas, usadas/vividas con registro de mi cuerpo y de las experiencias transitadas, para luego volverlas a coser, sin pensar en un fin, sin pensar en que será luego de terminar.
Me servía como una práctica que calmaba un sentimiento interno doloroso de separación, estaba separada y buscaba de manera inconsciente generar el puente que vinculara el pasado y el presente para poder cerrar la herida.
Esta pieza es un exorcismo, una ofrenda, ha sido para mí un ritual su construcción, puntada tras puntada iba uniendo pero a la vez lastimando la piel de cada prenda. »

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 2 – Burcu SULEK in a deep deep BLUE

Classé dans : Burcu SULEK (TR),COUP DE COEUR,EXCHANGE-BIJOU,MADEN (TR),Turquie (TR) — bijoucontemporain @ 22:15

Burcu SULEK

I discovered her and her work some « JOYA »s ago ….. in 2013, exhibited with the members of MADEN school …. LOVE at first sight for her BLUE jewels …. and impressed by this … SOLAR person !

And this impression of « SOLAR » remains, when you go for searching information to her website ! First thing, I go to the page « about », and there, usually, very complex, philosophical, psychological, aesthetic explanations … With Burcu Sulek ?
EVIDENCE, SIMPLICITY, and a BIG, CLEAR, SOLAR SMILE, with these words :
« I am taking great pleasure in creating what I love. « 
Directly, a SMASH, a SPLASH, a WAOUW of simplicity, happiness, beauty !!! For me, mixed with the souvenir of these BLUE jewels, in one word, MEDITERRANEAN !!
Then, you go to the page « works » … and there, the same splash of evidence, with the different titles :  « caves of HOPE », « HOLES of EMPTINESS »,  « EMPTINESS », « JUST »,  « BLOOMING HAPPINESS » and  « REBORN » (with no dates, nowhere, so, no way!,  you can’t « psycho-analyse » these titles …. ;-) …) So you search, as we say in french « on cherche la petite bête » (translated by « being nit-picky », « nitpicking »), « emptiness » ??? ha ha ….. some sadness ? some bad period ? and no, even there, in these « holes » or in this « emptiness » the sun arrives with its light and clarity : « Sometimes you find absolute fullness in sole emptiness », or « In this world of trickery, emptiness is what your soul wants… » …… Holes can be there, emptiness too, but they are just the « dark face » necessary to make the « bright face » exist ….
And this sentence « We all have hopes, plant yours in the caves » is SO full of HOPE !!! so simple, so gentle, so EVIDENT  !!

And then ? Well, It made me feel so safe, so fine ….. that just no need of jewels !!!  ;-)

So give us just a SPLASH of PLEASURE with my first love of BLUE !

« With her works she creates a plant and animal life and landscape where geometric knowledge alternates in processing natural and informal, where the color will find its space and where the story will become the main theme. Each work tells a story chapter by chapter linked to the experience of Barbara Paganin, but that each one can imagine different, adapting it to his own memory, to their own experiences, so bringing out from the seas of memories the images, flash, life paths that converge in unison in a single center or in the work itself. » (Elena Segato Virtualkiosk)

Barbara Paganin - "More" necklace, 2013 at Milan 2016  Miart & Triennale « More » necklace, 2013 – oxidised silver, gold and polymethylmethacrylate

« Il lavoro di Barbara Paganin condensa la coerenza concettuale di un percorso artistico articolato, supportato da conoscenze e capacità tecniche eccelse. Pur padroneggiando a fondo l’arte della lavorazione dei metalli, l’artista va oltre, desiderosa di sperimentare sempre nuove esperienze con materiali altri, quali il vetro, la porcellana, il polimetacrilato, il titanio raggiungendo costantemente un successo qualitativo di massimo livello. Il risultato sono dei pezzi « parlanti », delle opere che sempre hanno racchiusa una storia che ogni volta si racconta in modo diverso ad ogni diverso osservatore.
Non certo una mostra celebrativa quindi, forse anche quello, ma la reale opportunità di conoscere ed emozionarsi avendo l’incentivo per avvicinare e apprendere un percorso artistico esemplare che il catalogo con il testo di Mirella Cisotto, curatrice della mostra, e gli ingigantimenti fotografici dei singoli pezzi aiutano ancor più a svelare. » (archimagazine - EXPO « Barbara Paganin -Dall’orto alla soffitta » Oratorio di San Rocco, Padova 16 ott.- 22 nov. 2015)
« la « sequenza simultanea » di oltre 120 pezzi messi insieme in occasione di questa esposizione, toglie davvero il fiato«

« inspired by the vivid colors and organic shapes of her natural surroundings, Barbara Paganin channels the textures and forms of landscapes and fruit in her imaginative, contemporary jewelry. Paganin lives in Venice, Italy, where she is a graduate of sculpture from the Academy of Fine Arts and now teaches jewelry design at the Art Institute of Venice along with maintaining her studio. In her designs, Paganin replicates patterns and forms derived from nature in intricate detail. »

« Barbara Paganin, the Venetian goldsmith, from the first creations of the ’80s to the most recent completed during this year 2015. For over 25 years, exhibited in Europe (London, Vienna, Monaco, Gothenburg, Paris, Antwerp …) and the US (New York, Chicago, Miami …) ; known internationally, has won several national and international awards. The artist inherits from goldsmith school of Padua, within which is inserted the critically intense structuralism that it then turns into an original form of naturalistic figuration. » (Virtualkiosk)

« Dall’orto alla Soffita is the first retrospective dedicated to Paganin’s work in Italy, and we should be thankful to the city of Padua for paying homage to a great maker, and aligning itself with recognition she has already received abroad.
The question is, why did we have to wait so many years?
One possible interpretation is that her work is too innovative and especially too “divergent” from that of the Gold School of Padua to have been widely promoted or simply given its proper due in Italy. Being so stylistically detached sent her on a different, international career course. » (AJF)

« The space in between »

Fil rouge à suivre, que je suis depuis un moment déjà, fil rouge rompu, changement de cap ? Mais il reste toujours et encore ces espaces, vides? architecturaux? liés par un fil, même s’il n’est plus rouge …..

« I aim to build « flesh » around a metal frame with an original surface of « skin ». I would like to create forms that give evidence of their structural elements : an internal support, core or axis, a body growing around it and finally an external surface, the skin. » Iro Kaskani, JOYA 2016

« Iro Kaskani studied architecture and jewelry design in Florence, Italy.
Her education and experience in architecture guides her creativity. Her work is mostly determined by the interest to compose fine metals with alternative materials and define new forms. She does not consider a piece of jewelry to be destined just for decorative purposes. If it was so, it would be so limiting. Jewelry becomes one with the person wearing it and unites with his/her unique personality. This is the true essence that influences and provides meaning to her work. »

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 2 – Reka Lőrincz – you are what you eat

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,EXCHANGE-BIJOU,Hongrie (HU),Reka LORINCZ (HU) — bijoucontemporain @ 23:47

Reka Lőrincz

Un humour jubilatoire, grinçant, décapant, à tout va, qui dénonce, montre du doigt, ce qu’on mange, ce qu’on avale -mentalement comme physiquement- , ce qu’on croit ou qu’on veut nous faire croire ……

« Jewellery design means the interpretation of today’s world to me. A sort of communication between the outside world and that of my own. Making the invisible visible. Through my jewels I am contemplating the tangled variety of the universe. Heaps of emotions and thoughts pass through my mind through the impulses of the environment which I examine and turn them into objects. I am intrigued by the street. What exactly means what I see. Through my objects I mainly tried to reflect the difference between that of the shown and the real world which can sometimes look appealing, fake or even dangerous. »

Avec tous les médicaments que j’avale (merci mon diabète !!! :-( …) je commencerai par cette broche qui m’enchante !!! entre « boulimie du médoc » et « boulimie du bijou » …… ;-)

« Budapest-based Reka Lörincz is an award-winning artist who typically expresses social criticism – such as concerns with commercialisation, mass production and popular culture –through 3D objects.
Her ‘Too Much is Not Enough” collection  is the perfect example.
Populated with symbols of 1950s diner culture, which are then translated into kitsch and colourful crystal gem-studded jewellery, it’s designed to amuse as much as they provoke. » (Adorn)
