Il n’y a qu’un pas entre la sculpture et le bijou, et mon travail se situe le long de cette subtile frontière. Fondamentalement, je crée des bijoux ; toutefois, mes pièces sont autonomes, des sculptures portables, des objets uniques, animés d’une vie propre. Ainsi s’établit une relation individuelle entre l’objet et son porteur, comme la rencontre de deux âmes sœurs en quelque sorte.

« L’intuition est au cœur de mon travail ; c’est mon outil le plus important. En général, les choses émergent lorsque vous n’y pensez pas. Cela induit une atmosphère qui permette de ne pas tout expliquer. Ceci est primordial, car ainsi mes objets peuvent être nimbés d’une touche de mystère. S’ils invitent à la réflexion et à la discussion, ils sont tout autant une source spontanée de plaisir.
Je crois que le ressort de la beauté repose sur la force de l’âme et la personnalité. Mon travail séduit les gens qui sont attirés par sa profondeur et ses qualités matérielles, et qui en apprécient la gravité. Ceci peut expliquer que mon travail soit apprécié autant par les hommes que par les femmes.
Mon travail prend du temps. Il ne peut être créé quand il veut l’être. J’ai sans doute appris cela de mon grand-père, qui était un artiste. Une fois qu’il avait terminé une peinture, mon père et lui s’y plongeaient pendant des heures, réfléchissant longuement pour, parfois, n’ajouter qu’un petit coup de pinceau à la fin. Ce suprême moment de concentration est extrêmement important dans mon travail.
Quant à la forme, mes pièces sont géométriques et lisibles, cependant leur surface n’est pas lisse – elle est pleine de vie. Ils sont le résultat d’un savoir-faire parfaitement maîtrisé d’une part, et de mon attirance pour l’imperfection de l’autre. Tout se joue sur la tension qui est créée par ces contrastes. »  Dominique Labordery

EXPO ‘Forgotten Stones / Vergessene Steine’ – Eva Maisch’s Gallery, Würzburg (DE) – 18 Avril-23 Mai 2015

Forgotten Stones – Art Jewelry Exhibition at Eva Maisch’s Gallery

neue Ausstellung « Vergessene Steine » wird am Samstag, den 18. April eröffnet.

 Eva Maisch gallery

Wir präsentieren Arbeiten von  Adam & Stoffel, Michael Becker, Rudolf Bott, Petr Dvorak, Annette Ehinger, Dominique Labordery, Deborah Rudolph, Nils Schmalenbach und Pia Sommerlad.

Lustrous and colorful, hard and imperishable: stones have piqued people’s interest since the early days of human history, when hunters and gatherers, our early ancestors, interpreted them as gifts from the gods and attributed healing and protective powers to them – and used them as jewelry. Over the course of cultural history, people have changed their notions and interpretations of them. Precious stones appeared in legends and fairy tales, and were incorporated in the crowns of aristocrats and the jewelry of wealthy citizens. They became status symbols, an economic factor and the subject of scientific research. In our day and age, precious stones continue to play an important role as jewelry elements or investments. In contrast to conventional gem-studded jewelry, which features gemstones in classical cuts and arranged in repetitive patterns, contemporary jewelry artists are using their own individual techniques to restore the magic of gemstones.

Some of the Forgotten Stones showcased at Eva Maisch’s gallery radiate an almost weightless aura, others display a heavy, solid quality, and others again surprise the beholder with unusually imaginative cuts or their natural crystal structure. They stimulate our senses with finely engraved textures or imposing cuboidal shapes. Combined with matte gold, blackened silver or stainless steel, or spotlighted without any setting at all, they provide impressive reifications of creative freedom and individuality. With her current exhibition, the Würzburg-based gallerist and goldsmith provides insights into the work of eminent designers. They developed their individual styles while studying at art academies and universities, and have been honored with many international awards. At 7:30 p.m. on April 28 and 29, 2015, there will also be a concert with the singer and songwriter Hubert Treml (ArtAurea)

  »My jewellery requires movement, analysis and contemplation. It needs to be discovered again and again. My intention is to combine graphical forms, clear structures and sensitivity of colour. This expression of form is created by precise craftsmanship, using traditional techniques and a mix of materials. » – Dominique Labordery

LOOT 2012: Mad about Jewelry – EXPO-VENTE – MAD Museum, NY (USA) – 11-15 Sept. 2012

 LOOT 2012: Mad about Jewelry

The Museum of Arts and Design will present LOOT 2012: MAD about Jewelry, its juried selling exhibition of artist-made jewelry for four days this October. Now in its 12th year, LOOT: MAD about Jewelry has become known as the ultimate pop-up shop for contemporary art and studio jewelry by both artists and collectors alike; it affords the public the rare opportunity to acquire pieces directly from some of the most innovative jewelry artists in the world. This year, the creations of 50 emerging and acclaimed jewelry artists will be on sale. Prices will range from $200 to $12,000, with $1000 the average. Proceeds from the selling show will benefit the Museum’s exhibition and education programs. LOOT 2012  (Artists: Nikolay Sardamov)  11-15 sept 2012

LOOT 2012: MAD About Jewelry, the ultimate pop-up shop for contemporary art and studio jewelry, whose proceeds benefit the Exhibition and Education programs of the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD Museum), will run from Tuesday through Saturday, September 11 – 15, 2012.
Unlike any other jewelry event in the country, LOOT 2012 gives jewelry lovers the opportunity to meet some of the most innovative creators in the field and acquire work directly from them. This 12th edition of LOOT will be the largest and most international ever, with jewelry by more than 50 emerging and acclaimed artists, hailing from 12 countries.
It will also showcase the work of jewelry students from New York’s own Fashion Institute of Technology.

Like last year, the exhibition and sale has been curated by Bryna Pomp, a jewelry specialist, and Nancy Olnick, a noted collector; they selected the artists for their originality, use of materials, and expert craftsmanship. Much effort was also made to find distinguished artists from around the world.

Among those in this year’s roster will be the acclaimed German bead artist Axel Russmeyer, who in addition to participating in the exhibition and sale will be awarded the inaugural LOOT Award for Contemporary Art Jewelry. This annual prize is in keeping with the long-standing commitment of the Museum of Arts and Design to presenting jewelry as an art form. MAD is the only American museum to possess a gallery dedicated to the display of both temporary jewelry exhibits and its own collection of contemporary and modern studio and art jewelry, which it began assembling soon after its founding in 1956.

“Axel Russmeyer is an artist whose outstanding achievement in crafting highly original and exceptionally beautiful jewelry sets the standard of excellence for all in this medium,” says Michele Cohen, the Chair of LOOT 2012. “His color and texture combinations and his sense of design take beaded jewelry to another level of the imagination. You have only to see and touch his pieces to understand why his work is coveted by the most prestigious museums and private collectors around the world.”

 

Other notable jewelry artists participating in LOOT 2012 are:
Eimear Conyard
This Irish artist views jewelry as object as much as adornment. In addition to producing splendid, yet spare pendants, brooches, and rings, she also makes limited-edition timepieces. For LOOT 2012, she will offer a new
collection of timepieces, specifically designed for the exhibition.
Eva Eisler
In Europe, this Czech artist is as well known for her tabletop, lighting, and furniture designs, as for her minimalist art jewelry. The chair of the metals department at Prague’s Academy of Arts, Architecture, and Design, she will bring along the work of six of her top students, two of whom will be in attendance.
Emmeline Hastings
A sculptor as well as a jeweler, this British artist works in Perspex and a variety of metals to create wearable objects that evoke the motion and pattern of waves.
Dominique Labordery
Working in agate, oxidized silver, and gold, this Belgian-born, Dusseldorf based artist uses minimalist details to the maximum effect.
Jeremy May
This British artist makes jewelry from carved out book pages, which he laminates and polishes. The excavated tome then serves as the jewelry container.
Kazumi Nagano
The Tokyo-based Nagano brings the sensibilities of traditional Japanese painting to jewelry making. Woven out of strands of silver and gold, silk, nylon, and Japanese paper thread, her jewelry is subtle, yet sumptuous,
and gossamerlike in weight.
Linda van Niekerk
Rare Tasmanian wood and tidal stones, ribbons of sterling silver, chunky discs of African amber, and oxidized Turkomen beads are among the materials from which this master artist, born in South Africa, now based in
Tasmania, makes striking wearable sculpture.
Joe Pillari
This Philadelphia-based artist makes enigmatic hand-painted enamel brooches inspired by old photographs.
Nikolay Sardamov
This Bulgarian artist jeweler creates a rigid meshwork out of clusters and layers of circles in silver and gold. While the geometry is simple, the effect is rich in pattern and density.
