BIJOUX with a HOLE ….

un trou …. pas juste un trou, mais une cassure, une brisure, une faille, un « défaut », une « petite destruction », une blessure, un manque, un « manqué » …

Mais aussi une ouverture, une fenêtre …. vers un ailleurs, vers un « regard sur soi », vers une introspection, vers ce qu’on a (d’)enfermé et qu’on laisse (enfin) sortir/voir/respirer/s’épancher ….

Comme le dit Joo Hyung Park, « Beauty (is) in Imperfection » ….. Même discourspour Brooke Marks-Swanson : « « I am drawn to the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. …..  My object is to cause the viewer to speculate, imagine and to investigate… »

COUP de COEUR ! Emanuela DUCA – superbes SCORIES

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Emanuela DUCA (IT),Italie (IT),metal,www JewelleryScape — bijoucontemporain @ 0:42

De superbes textures, granuleuses et rugueuses, « brutes de décoffrage » : elle évoque elle-même le magma, les cendres volcaniques, les antiquités romaines -et leur rouille, leur oxydation-, le granulé du sable ….. et moi ce qui m’impressionne le plus c’est le contraste entre ces bijoux « sauvages », je dirais presque « masculins », des « bijoux de ferronnier », et les photos d’Emanuela Duca, à l’air on ne peut plus « blonde et douce » ! SUPERBE travail !
« In my most recent work, “Sand” and “Terra,” I revisit ancient Italian forms and reinterpret them with a modern sensibility. Sculpted in wax, then forged and constructed in sterling silver and 18K gold, the individual forms are highly textured, their surfaces evocative of volcanic ash and the ancient ruins of my native Rome. Yet their shape and combination is clean, simple, and minimal. Just the kind of contrast I aim to achieve in all my work. » (Emanuela DUCA)

EXPO ONLINE at JEWELLERY SCAPE – METAL section

http://www.jewelleryscape.com

EXPO ONLINE at JEWELLERY SCAPE -  METAL section dans Agata BIENKOWSKA (PL) enter

« This virtual exhibition presents, for the first time, the « virtual jewel community »: 250 works that, for methodological reasons, have been grouped into five macro-categories based on the material used: metal, paper, plastic, organic and fabrics. Within each of these categories however the initial heterogeneity has been preserved, as a conscious choice as well as well as to value the individuality and the geographical and semantic specificity of each piece. The works presented are those of great masters and young students alike, coming from all aver the world, characterized by different backgrounds and languages, alternately high or low technologies, manual or serial manufacture processes: the red thread that unites them all is the project, the necessary connective tissue in the contemporary babel.
Each of these works contains within it a world which unfolds before our very eyes, gifting us with the preciousness of a reflection and the emotion of a suggestion. Extraordinary pieces, for their making and the ideas behind them, from which we can sense memories of places and lives, shadows of incidental trajectories. And passion: in the form of challenge.

Each and every petal is cut by hand, the edges are smooth, then the flower petals are lifted and twisted to make the flower petals more rigid and dimensional in appearance. » (to shop on Etsy …)
