« SCENES OF THE MIND »
« My work is a means of expression, articulating ideas, transforming thoughts and emotions, shaping my psyche into jewelry.
This creative journey provides me with peace of mind and helps me improve myself. Pursuing and discovering new paths, experimenting with different colors and materials, is part of a process for bringing to life pieces that hold a special meaning to me as an artist and to the wearer.
My new project is about inner “Transformation”; transformation of the soul.
I created a jewelry collection that symbolises the transformation of positive and
negative thoughts that we are having during the day.
The continuous stream of thoughts, via meditation, gradually fades away, providing serenity and tranquility to the mind and soul. Through silence and observation of my thoughts, there comes an understanding, a need for change and self-improvement. »

« via meditation, slowly, all the bad (thoughts) are buried deep inside (the broken mirrors pieces that are INSIDE the brooch) and peace and beauty and serenity comes out, with nice and soft colors, with a smooth structure, done with smooth materials (paper), that looks like a flower in bud, a blossoming flower , a future beauty …. »

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Yiota VOGLI – all that matters…. painting & jewellery by Yiota Vogli – As gallery (Greece) – 6 Juill.-12 Aout 2017

  Yiota Vogli

All that matters ………. at As gallery - Agapi Smpokou Contemporary Jewellery and Art

opening on Thursday 6/7/2017 at 20.00

AS GALLERY- Agapi Smpokou contemporary jewellery and art is presenting the solo painting and jewellery exhibition of the artists Yiota Vogli, entitled « all that matters ». The exhibition’s opening is on July 6, 2017 at 20:00 at AS Gallery, Psaromiligkon 9 in the center of Heraklion.

all that matters…. painting & jewellery by Yiota Vogli
« I have drawn photographic portraits that capture an expression on human bodies, which seem to represent not just the subject’s personality but include manifestoes of our contemporary society.
This body of work is an exploration into the physical and emotional limits of individuals operating in contemporary society, using the human images, to expose psychological and physical states like joy, despair, guilty, emotional release, gravity, presence and absence. The question concerning female faith and generally the virtuous behavior which supposedly characterizes women in every area of their lives emerges as a central subject.
The female body becomes means and subject of emotional communication, when at the same time it turns into a canvas on which expresses the individual and public freedom, while reflects the aesthetic value of our times. »

« The emblematic photographs of the surrealist Man Ray (1890-1976) are the artist’s raw material, the basic building blocks of these works. Thereafter the artist intervenes either by the use of the digital ‘touching up’ of the photographs or through means solely afforded by painting, such as the addition of colour or the subtly nuanced repetition of the same subject, thus emphatically underlining invented symbolic features of the image. The cumulative function of memory and associations leads to the inclusion of other apparently disparate elements such as street graffiti, Byzantine images and Renaissance art or even fragments from ancient texts. The resultant new work has thus the form of a palimpsest, not just in terms of its images but also in the representation of feelings. »  Despina Tsougianni  PhD. History of Art

AJW 2017 - 19-05 : 19.30 : opening : “Worthless” by Arkivet Collective

Welcome to the opening of The ARCHIVEs exhibiton « Worthless » opening Friday the 19th of May 19.30 at Gallery IOS22 in collaboration with ATHENS JEWELRY WEEK 2017

http://athensjewelryweek.com/
http://www.arkivet.info/

ARKIVET (the Archive) is a group of Norwegian artists consisting of Putte H. Dal, Hilde Dramstad, Elsie-Ann Hochlin, Camilla Luihn and Heidi Sand.
As jewelry artists they each have their artistic distinction. What they have in common is that they like to apply a theme based and conceptual approach to their craft. Since their debut as a group in 2014 they have had numerous exhibitions both in Norway and abroad.
ARKIVET sets out to investigate, through their individual works, different angles on how jewelry may work as a medium to promote dialogue in society today. Projects are developed through discussion and research with a common wish to bring jewelry as an artistic expression into contemporary society. As an example ideological, socialist, capitalist or ecological values may be analysed and processed through jewelry to artistic expression that fosters reflection.
The jewelry materials, artistic idiom and narrative content discusses concepts in the context of sitespecific exhibition design. For each project ARKIVET reaches out to interdisciplinary collaborators such as musicians, writers and philosophers, and ARKIVET also publishes annual publications.
In the WORTHLESS project the group wishes to explore how worth or value is perceived in today’s society. What makes something valuable? What is worthless? ARKIVET promotes a visual and mental association space for a discourse about the social and economic mechanisms that govern what is considered valuable. ARKIVET emphasizes the communicative aspects of jewelry and chooses to reveal something about human dignity, political aspects, self-esteem and the environment.

« This collection has been created as a need to express my experience of being a new parent. When I observed all internal and external changes of the pregnant body, I embraced all the emotional ups and downs that we both had. I kept the storm of feelings created the moment we saw our baby and hold it in our arms and finally I stood amazed at the magnificent process of breast feeding. All these became the fragments of time at my beginning on the way to parenting.

« The human body is a space. The human body takes up space. The human body is the separator of an inside and an outside space.
How do these spaces interact with each other? Are they interconnected or out of balance? How do human beings deal with the condition of being the mediator?
Maybe there is no distinct answer but the exploration of these questions through the notion of materiality might be an answer in itself. »

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Grece (GR),Victoria IOANNIDOU (GR) — bijoucontemporain @ 2:30

New amazing work by Victoria Ioannidou jewelry-object designer,maker
“ THE UNBAREABLE LIGHTNES OF CO EXISTENCE”
The time has come to leave behind and part ways with all that is negative and preserve the quality of my life
because I am the one who will choose …to give up….. to live in the past…. to loose my pride..to fear…
OR to react… to feel anger… to fight ..and finally to move on.
You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” ― Mae West
so………………..
I had to destroy the path ,leave no trace, so the evil could not follow me
