EXPO ‘Read and Worn: Jewelry from Books’ – RR Gallery, NY (USA) – 10 Mars-30 Avril 2016

RR Gallery -  Very excited for our next exhibit — Read and Worn: Jewelry from Books

March 10 – April 24!! (extended to April 30)

 RR Gallery - 2016

Work from Jeremy May, Flora Vagi, Shiri Avda, Kiwon Wang, and Katherine Richmond
Shown: « Four Fantastic Tales » by Jeremy May

The Gallery at Reinstein|Ross is proud to present “Read and Worn” an exhibition featuring the work of five international artists who transform the pages of books and newspapers into unique works of wearable art jewelry. These artists are storytellers, who utilize the printed word as their form of expression. Whether using publications in their entirety, or simply using a few sheets of print, these artists give new life to the printed page. In the spirit of “intellectual recycling”, discarded newspapers and old books – literature, history and news – are given a second chance as bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and rings. Paper has long been a popular material for the creation of art, with artists often hand-making their own paper. Using the pages of books, newspapers, encyclopedias, however, is a recent trend, ironically spurred by the popularity of e-readers and online publications, and thus the abandonment of the printed and bound book.

Flora Vagi brooches at RR Gallery: Flora Vagi brooches

Hungarian artist Flora Vagi loves the smell of old books. Collecting old books, she removes the pages to create brooches inspired by marine life and floral forms. Vagi’s multilayered brooches are organic and curvilinear, just the opposite of the original structured and bound books. Vagi refers to her work as “intellectual recycling”, she enjoys knowing that these books, once found on someone’s shelf, have gone from inhabiting a private space to a public one when worn on the body. Vagi, is a celebrated art jeweler who often works with wood. In “Read and Worn” she will show her paper jewelry in the United States for the first time. 

Kiwon Wang neckpieceKiwon Wang neckpiece

Since childhood, Korean artist Kiwon Wang, has been inspired by paper. Not only is paper used freely in Korean domestic architecture, but growing up, her family always had an extensive library of books. Encouraged to “find out who she is”, while in graduate school at the Rhode Island School of design, it was obvious to Wang that paper, pearls, and metals were going to be her materials. Even now, printed paper is Wang’s material of choice. Wang chooses articles from old newspapers to create necklaces, brooches, and bracelets. Most of her pieces are adorned with pearls, the lustrous gems prized for their beauty in both Western and Eastern cultures. Wang is attracted to spherical forms, not just because this shape represents the earth but also because process of recycling is circular.

Jeremy May  paper ring: Jeremy May  paper ring

London-based artist Jeremy May purchases books from his local thrift store. After reading each one, he chooses a story that inspires him the most and turns it into a wearable sculpture.  May selects the pages that he carefully removes from the book, laminating as many as a hundred sheets together, then applies a high gloss finish before reinserting the jewelry into the excavated space within the book. Through his jewelry May hopes to give books a “new lease on life” and inspire people to fall in love with them all over again.

 Shiri Avda, “Rock Paper Scissors” Rings: Shiri Avda, “Rock Paper Scissors” Rings

Israeli native Shiri Avda in her work “The Mechanism of Reading” aspires to provoke the viewer with an experience equivalent to reading and leafing through the pages of an old book. Her objects, meant to be both worn and displayed on the wall, are carved from discarded books and embellished with an old lace pattern. Her second series, “Rock Paper Scissors” is inspired by the “world of texture and color” in the printed word. Avda does not conceal the typeface here, instead choosing to reveal the beauty of the printed pages that she takes from antique books and atlases. A fan-like shape – a flourish of paper -  is often used in her pendants, rings, and brooches.  

Katherine Richmond  Brooch: Katherine Richmond  Brooch

British artist Katherine Richmond trained as a jeweler and silversmith but her Graduate thesis at the School of Jewellery, Birmingham City University, UK prompted her to explore working with alternative materials, including books. Richmond utilizes pages from multi-volume Victorian journals and books, focusing on illustrations which she believes are rarely ever seen by the public, to create multi-layered and highly detailed brooches, necklaces, and pendants. Unlike the rest of the artists in the exhibition, Richmond’s jewelry is full of strong images by which she creates her own narrative. She “uses books as a symbol of permanence and longevity to create wearable objects with a fragility that questions traditional notions of wear-ability.” Paper, she says, is a lot more durable then people think it is.

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.

EXPO ‘From Darkness to light’ – El.Marneri Galerie, Athens (Greece) – 24 Mai-29 Sept 2012

« From Darkness to Light »

The deeply symbolic work of the philhellene artist Stoian Donev, “Light and Darkness” is presented for the first time at Eleni Marneri galerie . The artist brilliantly utilizes the two contradictory meanings with the purpose to signify that with poetry, “light can dominate darkness”. Prompted by Donev’s work, 54 talented greek and international philhellene artists in the area of contemporary jewellery, painting and design get inspired and express their personal perception of “light conquering darkness”.

COUP de COEUR ! Jeremy May (UK) – laminated paper jewelry

Jeremy May’s jewelry,  made by laminating hundreds sheets of paper together

PS : il m’a semblé intéressant de vous montrer à la suite ces différents créateurs de bijoux en papier, qui démontrent bien les infinies possibilités offertes par ce matériau !!! matériau que,vous avez pu le constater, j’apprécie tant ! :-)

« Paper is many things : a carrier of text, illustration, history and emotion.
Jeremy May (UK) has captured the beauty of paper via a unique laminating process. Littlefly jewellery is made by laminating hundreds sheets of paper together, then carefully finishing to a high gloss. The paper is selected and carefully removed from a book, and the jewellery re-inserted in the excavated space.
Each piece is impossible to replicate, and is unique to the  wearer. The beauty of the jewels extends within the piece: text and images pass all the way though the object, only exposed at the surfaces – giving a tantalising glimpse of the book within »
