La B.O. n’est pas à la fête avec la création contemporaine …..

difficile en effet de trouver quelque chose d’innovant ……….. Voir par exemple « The Earring show » à la Velvet da Vinci Gallery : de TRES belles choses, mais tout est, je dirais, « classique » : un pendant depuis une oreille percée ……..

 

Voici quelques « découvertes » sortant des sentiers battus ……

jolie découverte, à JOYA 2010 :

« My musical study and performance has paralleled my concentration in visual art throughout my life. This interest has prompted an investigation into the dialogue that exists between the sound that is perceived in one’s Imagination and the sound that one hears in reality. As our sense of hearing allows us to interact with external sound, I am pursuing a three dimensional exploration of the ear through chasing and repousse’ in precious metal. »

« I use ancient metalsmithing techniques of chasing and repoussé to create jewelry and sculptural forms in precious metals that examines the origin of ornament. Starting with the decoration of architecture, sculpture and painting, this series of wearable sculptures is inspired by botanical specimens significant in the history of ornamentation such as acanthus leaves and sunflowers. Expanding on ideas of the wearable, my work examines interactions between the body and ornamentation of the body. However, instead of using these symbolically rich botanicals in miniature, as the basis of ornamenting a traditional form of jewelry, I have developed a life size form for my pieces firstly, from the plant itself–the original source of the centuries-old ornamentation—and secondly, from the shape it necessarily must take as a piece worn on the human body. .. » (Catherine Clark Gilbertson)

Tenez vous bien !!! ….. ou le règne de la « fraise »

Colliers ou « ornements de cou » qui contraignent le corps à une posture particulière, l’obligent à se redresser, à « porter beau », entre ornement (gorgerins, « fraises » et collerettes) et appendice médical (minerves…) …

FRAISES

Et quand on a une soudaine envie de « fraise », il s’avère que la récolte est …. débordante de variétés !

« Gorgiere — Già in uso nel Cinquecento, fu nel secolo successivo che il colletto alla spagnola o gorgiera crebbe di volume assumendo nel costume dell’epoca un ruolo caratterizzante. Realizzate in candida tela inamidata e impreziosite da trine, le lattughe – è questo il nome che fu loro dato in Italia – costituivano un complemento capace di mettere in straordinario risalto la bellezza e l’espressività di un volto. E’ proprio l’eleganza e la bizzarria di questi antichi accessori d’abbigliamento che sembra riecheggiare nelle creazioni di Silvia Beccaria. »

EXPO ‘Chased + Repoussé’ – Velvet da Vinci gallery, San Francisco (USA) – 17 mars – 18 avril 2010

Velvet da Vinci in San Francisco presents: Chased + Repoussé, an exhibition shown in conjunction with the release of the recent publication, Chasing and Repoussé, Methods Ancient and Modern, by Nancy Megan Corwin.

This exhibition includes work from twenty-one contemporary artists who share a passion for these ancient metalworking techniques, many of whom have work included in Corwin’s book. The twenty-one artists reflect a range from traditional roots to modern approaches to the practice of chasing and repoussé. Dating back to antiquity, the technique has been used to add embellishment on armour, large scale sculpture, and gold and silver jewelry. The Statue of Liberty was formed from a sheet of copper using chasing and repoussé, as was the mummy mask of King Tutankhamen.

« Chasing and repoussé are methods of metalworking in which the metal is embossed from both front and back, creating a three-dimensional form from a two-dimensional sheet. Repoussé is a French word meaning « to push up or forward. » It refers to a family of techniques that form sheet metal. Repoussé can be thought of as focusing on the creation of volume, while chasing is work done to the front such as planishing, lining, matting, and making crisp edges on forms that were raised from behind.
The techniques of chasing and repoussé are traditionally used to add detail to the surface of a piece of hollowware or jewelry. Sheet metal, hollow-formed metal, flatware, and sculptures can all be chased (textured and refined from the front with steel tools called chasing tools and using a chasing hammer), and worked from the back with soft-faced steel tools (repoussé).
The work is held steady in a material called pitch (wood-based resin combined with wax and plaster), and hammered with fine steel tools. Pitch can be held in a heavy metal bowl, spread on a piece of wood or poured into the hollowware piece that is being chased. The versatility of this material is what gives chasing its sculptural and detail possibilities. Contemporary metalsmiths continue to apply these techniques in both traditional and non-traditional ways. What makes these techniques contemporary is the freedom that many artists experience in terms of content and aesthetic
