 EXPO Gal. Slavik - Annamaria Zanella & Renzo Pasquale - 7mai-20juin 2015 (Annamaria Zanella « popp Cell » brooch)

Annamaria Zanella and Renzo Pasquale Exhibition  For the period of the Vienna Festival the Slavik Gallery is presenting a special duo exhibition devoted to the work of the artists – and married couple – Annamaria Zanella and Renzo Pasquale. Although they have quite different styles, their jewellery is complementary. Together, their artefacts form a wonderfully harmonious whole.

Annamaria Zanella‘s fascinating jewellery objects are as exciting as they are unusual. In this exhibition she is presenting colourful necklaces made in idiosyncratic materials to which she gives a special finish with elements in gold. But in her diverse and highly imaginative creative world there is also room for glass, enamel and plastics, all radiant with powerful, finely harmonized colours. Every one of her miniature sculptures is an expression of the artist’s breathtaking inner power and bubbling energy. All richly poetic, many also have a special story to tell, such as the « Gala » brooch in silver, enamel and red plastic that she dedicated to Gala Eluard, who was muse and wife to both Paul Eluard and Salvador Dali.

The work of the jewellery artist Renzo Pasquale is permeated by a great love of geometry. Masterfully worked in silver, titanium and plexiglass, his brooch « Olimpico » betrays his admiration for the Italian Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio, whose example has inspired Renzo Pasquale to an oeuvre characterized by aesthetic balance, perfect proportions, and the noble harmony of classical Italian poetry. Also a stonemason by training, he invests his gold rings with a special clarity and liveliness through a precise use of cut lapis lazuli, jasper and agate.

Artists:  Alexandra Brachtendorf — Mirjam HillerHelfried KodréKaori JuzuStefano MarchettiRamon Puig CuyàsSilvia WalzPer Suntum

The Slavik Gallery is starting its new cycle of exhibitions with a display of unique jewellery by international artists whose arresting creations never fail to impress.
The dynamic, technologically inspired brooches of Ramon Puig Cuyàs, Professor at the famous Escola Massana in Barcelona, catch the eye with architectural elements and a striking use of colour.
Silvia Walz also teaches at the Massana school. Her imaginative and smilingly colourful enamel bangles are bursting with energy and joie de vivre.
Mirjam Hiller makes jewellery out of sheet stainless steel or copper, which is sawn, folded and bent into shape to form little art works that are unique. The artist herself: « The piece of jewellery must be irresistible to the eye. It must hold me spellbound and touch my senses. Unique, exotic and beautiful, it should awake one’s curiosity and yet still be a little familiar. »
As the Japanese jewellery artist Kaori Juzu lives and works in Denmark, her creations are influenced by two quite different cultures. Her many-coloured « enamel jewellery treasures » tell stories of mysterious and unknown worlds.
In the golden jewellery objects of the German artist Alexandra Brachtendorf the gilding is done on a ground of rough forged iron, creating lively surface structures that are rich in shine and shadow.

EXPO ‘TWO – THE SYMMETRY OF THE MOMENT’ – Galerie Slavik, Vienna (AT) – 15 Oct.-16 Nov. 2013


15 October to 16 November 2013
Exhibition opening: 15 Oct. 2013, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Discover the symmetry of the moment in this exhibition juxtaposing the beautiful inspirations of Margit Jäschke – a wanderer between two worlds of art – with the ironic jewellery still lives and bitter-sweet compositions of Georg Dobler.
Margit Jäschke – a visual jewellery artist, painter and creator of installations – takes her inspiration from the sensuality and form of materials. The distinction between jewellery meant to be worn and an autonomous work of art becomes obliterated as details evoking various associations move into the foreground. The jewellery pieces open up vistas of fantastic worlds.
Finely structured bare tree trunks, blossoms with delicate petals, turquoise stone pendants – Georg Dobler creates ironic jewellery still lives with his naturalistic silver copies of the beauties of nature. Large, sparkling amethysts give the blackened silver necklace an aura of grandeur and resplendence, while the bright red flowers in the floral brooch seem to eternalize moments of ephemeral nature in extravagant form. Stylistically, the artist views his creations as being akin to the Art Nouveau of René Lalique.

Exhibition opening: 22 Sept. 2011, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.



Portuguese jewellery art – a variety of gorgeous works and captivating forms

A compelling display of works by Portuguese jewellery artists opens the new panorama of exhibitions at Vienna’s Galerie Slavik. The range of unique pieces of jewellery encompasses strictly geometric, richly pictorial and consistently reduced creations.

The golden necklace by Ana Albuquerque, who has intensively explored the material gold and its history, is a compelling piece of simple and strictly reduced form, which is further accentuated by the glow of gold.

The name of Tereza Seabra, an artist who in the course of her training studied with Thomas Gentile in New York, has become synonymous with contemporary jewellery art in Lisbon today. Her golden vintage pendants take us on a journey into the past, a picture diary of old photographs and miniature landscapes painted on ivory and framed in gold.

The golden ring sculptures by Paula Crespo, one of the most noted Portuguese jewellery artists, are powerful, wearable miniature sculptures.
The works by Alexandra Serpa Pimentel are based on natural forms and structures. She designs powerfully expressive necklaces which in movement seem to merge with their wearers in fluid unity.

The white paper brooches by Ana Coutos appear to float as weightlessly as a feather.

The exciting series of « Luster – Territories » brooches in silver, aluminum, lacquer and gold leaf by Dulce Ferraz reflect topographic morphologies created by man and nature.

Castello HansenNel LinssenKaoru NakanoSilke SpitzerFlora Vagi

In its current exhibition JEWELLERY – WOOD – PAPER, Galerie Slavik presents creations by international artists in a rich array of forms and designs inspired by the world of nature.
The Danish jewellery artist Castello Hansen specialises in working in wood – and he prefers birch for its lightness. His ring sculptures and pendants, with their simple and clear forms, are captivating to the eye. The profiled golden disc at the centre of his round brooch of whitened wood seems to float as it catches the light.
Silke Spitzer, Grassi Prize winner of 2010, views her wooden creations as homage to the beautiful things that nature offers – the simplest materials and the simplest shapes mirroring the indomitable force of constant recurrence.
Her necklaces of discs sawn from thin branches reflect the growth of a tree, seeming to expand from the perfect surface of tiny slices of veneer into the three-dimensionality of space.
The fabulous paper-folding technique which the Dutch jewellery artist Nel Linssen has developed and used since the early 1970 brings forth creations of timeless relevance – bracelets and necklaces assuming variegated and unexpected shapes and tinges of colour as the wearer moves or the light changes.
Owing to the vitality and lightness and the high aesthetic quality of the works, the wearers experience the spiralling neck chains composed of folded paper elements in bright and variegating tones of blue, red and yellow as a highly pleasurable experience. The selection at the exhibition gives an insight into the enormous variety that Nel Linssen achieves with her passion for cutting and folding paper, using techniques which she has perfected to absolute mastery.
Flora Vagi presents chains made of richly coloured wood chips and brooches reminiscent of sea anemones compactly knitted out of fine strips of paper.
Kaoru Nakano folds Japanese ‘washi’ paper into almost weightless chains and brooches.

EXPO ‘Helfried Kodré : Jewellery & Sculpture’ – Galerie Slavik, Vienne (Austria) – 4 Mai-12 Juin 2010

Helfried Kodré
« After a 18 year long break, (Kodré a graduated Art Historian with a strong love for Italian architecture, and was teaching at the University of Vienna for ten years), he started to create again in the early 1990ies. With new forms, a completely new approach, having learned and being trained with a new, broad and analytic vocabulary, but in his familiar artistic language. He never stops, he always goes on, improving, refining, contouring, shaping – and bounding himself to be consequent. He still chooses the materials he always preferred, and his sculptures, too, show the extraordinary skill of a self-trained perfectionist. »

dans un MONDE SUB-AQUATIQUE naissent des BIJOUX ……

Ce n’est pas du matériau utilisé d’où je veux partir (genre je vais vous montrer des bijoux en nacre, en corail, etc ….) non, c’est de « l’impression marine » donnée …. comme une vague, de tous les côtés, qui doucement envahi les créateurs ….

Ce n’est pas tant le matériau qui compte, quoique …. corail, nacre, coquillage(s), oursins, galets…. ils ont leur mot à dire. Est-ce qu’ils viennent donner la « touche marine », en … « touche finale »,  ou sont-ils à l’origine de l’idée ? N’est-ce pas plutôt leur texture, leur aspect, leur granulé, je dirais presque leur « grain de peau », qui inspire ? qui donne l’idée de « faire comme si » ? Beaucoup de ces bijoux »aquatiques » sont en papier, silicone, argent, porcelaine, verre, feutre …. rien à voir avec ce que l’on est censé trouver en fond de mer (oui, enfin, rien de ce que l’on ETAIT censé trouver ….. maintenant ….. pfff ! ma brav’dame ! ……… ), mais ce qui merveilleux c’est que ces matériaux « terriens », voire industriels, nous parlent du fond des mers avec maestria, presque mieux que les « vrais », car ils ont un pouvoir d’évocation très fort, le rêve, l’imagination, l’interprétation sont libres de s’envoler : ce n’est pas « vraiment » du corail, mais ça fait penser au corail, ou à plus, à ce que l’on veut, à ce que l’on ressent  …. enfin, la maestria des matériaux qui nous parlent, je m’entends, plutôt la maestria des doigts de ces créateurs que j’envie tant (les doigts ET les créateurs ! ;-) )

Bon, assez parlé, des images ! :-)
