« In the natural world the vibrant exuberance of enticing and often forbidding forms, all with an endless array of textures and clashing colors, excites me even as I struggle to accept its impermanence.
Seeking to express my profound wonder for the natural world, I turn to jewelry with its intimate connection to the body. Jewelry has the magical ability to transform how a person presents oneself while bringing a sense of theater into our lives. Why be so cautious with our adornment, our “costumes”, before we exit this stage? I am enamored of the brooch as a sculptural form and the ease with which it can be worn and brought to life by the movement of the wearer.
My use of vitreous enamels (glass fired on metal at 1500F/800C) is irreverent but skilled and it complements my intuitive process of responding to a piece as it evolves. This openness often results in a piece that I didn’t foresee at the start but that is consistently rooted in its underlying geometric beginnings.«

Genesis, Life and Form Through Different Lenses

Genesis, Life and Form Through Different Lenses by Ezra Satok-Wolman and Wendy McAllister. -   Exhibition  /  03 Dec 2014  -  16 Jan 2015 - Klimt02 Gallery Barcelona

Genesis: Life and Form Through Different Lenses is a duo exhibition of jewelry by Ezra Satok-Wolman and Wendy McAllister at the Klimt02 Gallery. The concept was born in Barcelona in 2012 after Ezra’s trip to the Sagrada Familia, when he came to realize that Gaudi’s infamous project was the perfect archetype for the macrocosm microcosm concept with nature as the basis for its artistic concepts and many of the structural elements. After seeing Wendy’s work in person for the first time at Sieraad Art Fair in 2013, Ezra realized that they were both inspired by the same subject matter and trying to represent very similar concepts in their work. On that same note, their interpretations are vastly different and the lens paradigm began to evolve into an exhibition concept. Not only did this draw a clear parallel with the Sagrada Familia project, but their subject matter was in line with Gaudi’s artistic motivation, to demonstrate the beauty and wonder of nature’s grand design and its connection to the rest of the Universe.
