EXCHANGE-BIJOU 2 – Carlos SILVA – Tests and Experiments

Carlos SILVA

Expérimentation(s), expérimentation(s), & expérimentation(s) !!
D’ailleurs un de ses albums de photos s’intitule « Tests and Experiments » et on dirait que c’est vraiment ça son « leitmotiv », le « truc en plus », ce qui l’éclate ! le matière de prédilection, en tout cas celle autour de laquelle il tourne et retourne, c’est le bois …. le naturel …. auquel, petit à petit, il ajoute des « produits dénaturés » de la « civilisation » (plastiques, goudron, mousse synthétique pour déco, plâtre….)

Here are some « experiments », as an « appetizer » ! ;-)

« “A subject that is beautiful in itself gives no suggestion to the artist. It lacks imperfection.” – Oscar Wilde
In our daily lives we come across many elements that hold a hidden beauty. 
I feel I am rarely attracted by the immediate beauty of nature. It is in its minor flaws, irregularities and asymmetries I find true expression. 
 In my work I create jewelry that can translate this seemingly random nature. I use many organic shapes, and use techniques which allow me to replicate these unique shapes, their natural formations and imperfections, because therein lies their true beauty. »

EXPO ’40 Jewels (40 Joias)’ – Galeria Tereza Seabra, Lisbon (Portugal) – 29 Oct.-19 Nov. 2013

40 Jewels (40 Joias) -     Galeria Tereza Seabra (Lisbon, Portugal)

“40 Jewels” celebrates the 40th anniversary of Ar.Co – Centro de Arte e Comunicação Visual, Lisbon, Portugal, and the 35th anniversary of its Jewellery department. Founded in 1978 by Tereza Seabra, Ar.Co’s Jewellery department became her responsability for 25 years, until it was passed on to Cristina Filipe in 2004. This was the first (and is still the only) contemporary jewellery program fully integrated into an art school in Portugal. National and international collaborations with artists,  jewellers, public and private schools and other entities were and have remained a crucial part of the Jewellery department’s identity. “40 Jewels” will present selected works by 40 ex-students who have completed Ar.Co’s Studies Plan between 1978 and 2013.

« Eccentric collection » with Be De Lite

Be De Lite (Carlos Silva ) : « Eccentric collection » ou la légéreté, la transparence, la joyeuse « exentricité »  du plastique

« The materials assume aesthetic of organic “glamour”, using various references that go from the “pop” universe of the 50’s and 60’s, to the spontaneous experimentalism of the adherent pieces that function almost as a second skin »
