Agnes LARSSON Remains  - august 8-sept 7 2015 - Ornamentum Gallery

Agnes Larsson, hair jewelry

« Remains – Agnes Larsson 2015 -
Skin, – the container of our body, a carrier of life, holder of light, a surface with a depth. It is faded, solid and transparent. It is hardened,  petrified and reshaped. As a construction it is strong but at the same time fragile. It has been transformed and time has left its mark.
Hair, - A remnant, a trace of life. Bleached, almost white. On its own very brittle, together it is strong with movement and vitality. 
Aluminum, –  often seen as light, polished and cold, yet it has been shaped with a surface soft like skin- tactile and warm, changing…ageing. Grey like stone.
Remains marks Agnes Larsson’s second solo exhibition with Ornamentum.  Larsson was born 1980 in Stockholm, Sweden.  Awarded the AJF Emerging Artist Award for her previous body of work created of carbon in 2010, she earned her MFA in silversmithing and jewellery at Konstfack, Stockholm, under professors Ruudt Peters, Helena Lehtinen and Karen Pontoppidan. «

Silke Spitzer: Breathing

gal Ornamentum

« Silke Spitzers most recent body of work BREATHING is aptly named. Like the delicate task of inhaling and exhaling these pieces feel effortless and very intimate.  She choreographs her ideas with pinpoint balance between primal earthiness and refined beauty and somehow does this  so it conjures lighthearted memories from a childhood that we wish we’d had. »

EXPO ‘HANNAH HEDMAN: LOSS’ – Ornamentum gallery, Hudson, NY (US) – 6 Juill.-5 Aout 2013

 Hanna Hedman: Loss

Hahha Hedman 'loss'

 « All around is beauty, but a lingering bleakness is pulling downward. » – Hanna Hedman
Hanna Hedman’s new group of jewellery merge from aesthetics of loss, personal inner darkness, imitated nature and talismanic objects.
Blossoming sentimental flowers that imitate still life paintings become preserved into metal. Desiccated leaves form a hand that wants to hold on to you or a mask to hide behind. The work represent a frozen moment of decay; a preserved dark beauty that derives from the struggle of good and evil. Light and darkness are contesting one another. The jewellery wants to be beautiful on one hand, but on the other hand haunting and not even jewellery at all.

COUP de COEUR ! Jennifer TRASK

avec Jennifer TRASK  j’ai eu l’impression d’entrer dans le domaine des elfes et des trolls, sur fond de musique de Björk ……..

Represented at SOFA NEW YORK by Ornamentum, Hudson, NY
Jennifer TRASK has an M.F.A. in metalsmithing from the State University of New York at New Paltz. Inspired by man’s effect on nature, Trask uses salvageable materials like pre-ban ivory, antlers, gold and palladium to create fantastical botanical arrangements. Trask says her “recycled materials address the uncomfortable distance we have created from nature itself. The references are specific, biological and metaphoric…Beauty is great, but I’m more interested in getting people to look at the unusual.” Jennifer Trask will also be a speaker in the SOFA NEW YORK 2011 Lecture Series.

Jennifer Trask’s  Calciflora (Agavacea) brooch ‘Corona’ – 18K gold, palladium gold, bone, teeth (deer), sapphires, rainbow moonstones -
‘Unnatural Histories’ series, Flourish (2008), begins with the following definitions of the word flourish:
1. To grow well or luxuriantly; thrive
2. To do or fare well; prosper
3. To be in a period of highest productivity; excellence or influence.
4. To make bold or sweeping movements

Jennifer TRASK – « Germinate » neckpiece created out of an assortment of found materials (often in the woods behind her home in upstate New York) : deer antlers, cow and ox bones, pigeon skull, teeth from a nutria (beaver-like animal), pre-ban ivory, plastic, steel, brass and five tiny hidden diamonds – at SOFA N.Y. 2010 (Ornamentum Gallery)

 

« What inspired you to make this piece?
I’ve been working on it along with the large wall installation (below) for the Dead or Alive exhibit at the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD Museum, 2010). Naturally, the work has been mingling and some of these are fragments from the larger piece. The ornament and growth are directional, circular if you look carefully at the neckpiece. The recycled materials also address the uncomfortable distance we have created from nature itself. The references are specific, biological and metaphoric.
Why bone?
I wanted to work with something elemental and bone serves three purposes: the concept, it relates on a visceral level to the body, and is easily sourced as remnants from hunting, or as found material.
How long did it take you to make?
It’s hard to say how long a single piece takes since I work on several projects at once and there is an organic evolution to the process. I gather materials and arrange them, and then rearrange endlessly, sometimes, until there is a natural flow to the design. When you start looking at growth patterns there are curious overlaps—nerve cells and capillaries to the way plants branch and vines twist, and so on.  » (interview on Wmagazine, « Treasure Hunt »)
