De temps en temps je reprends ma série «virus de la comparaison» …. la plupart du temps «pur hasard» ou ce que j’appelle «air du temps», parfois, souvent je crois, pure « ignorance culturelle » (de l’histoire du bijou) de la part de jeunes qui démarrent, et parfois … finalement assez rarement, on préférera ne pas parler de la vilaine «copie» …….. juste d’un «rapprochement visuel» !

« In the jewellery world Marjorie Schick is a complete original. Over forty years she has built up an impressive oeuvre. Her colourful wood or papier-maché constructions make a powerful visual statement when worn as wearable objects. « (Book: « Sculpture to Wear. The Jewelry of Marjorie Schick »)
« I often construct forms of a scale which puts the work into the category of body sculpture rather than jewelry. »
« My work has been about exploring the boundaries of jewelry and sculpture since my first year in graduate school, though I did not quite understand it as that. Then, as I left school to begin my professional career, I found my direction in the work of sculptor David Smith: what would it be like to put your head or an arm through one of his works? That was 1966. I have been trying to achieve that fusion, to be both jeweler and sculptor (and something of a painter as well) ever since. I am as excited about this adventure today as I was more than forty years ago. » (CharonKransenArts)
« My work is a sculptural statement which is complete when off the figure yet is constructed and exists because of the human body. I am intrigued by the idea that the human body is capable of carrying large objects, both physically and visually; therefore, I
often construct forms of a scale which puts the work into the category of body sculpture rather than jewelry.
There are five major aspects to my work: the constructed three-dimensional form, the color relationships, the definition of space, the combination of patterns, and the scale of the objects in relationship to the human figure. My goal is to create a sense of visual tension among the formal elements of each object, such as from line to plane, from color to value, from one directional
force to another, or from the rhythms in the structure to the rhythms in the colors. Each object is studied and worked in totality, no part being any less important than any other.
I refer to the linear constructions I did in the 1980′s as three -dimensional drawings to wear and to the newer more organic works as sculptural paintings to wear. I hope that as objects they seem to be « alive » with aesthetic presence. The motivation for the work is never to fit into any trend but rather the work is done out of a passion for creating, for trying to do something significant » (Pittsburg State Univ.)

Izabella Petrut - « Blood on the ground » necklace – Innocent project – plastic toy, acrylic paint, copper, silk thread, varnish, 2013
The “Innocent” project gives me the chance to express an issue I am very much concerned with: the abuse against animals. The plastic toys are a way of representing an innocence that can only imply the horrible things that could / might have happened. I cut the animal toys the way butchers do, whilst others I use in twisted positions. After that I melt them, creating situations that I imagine they end up in. I paint them in lively colors that are not specific to those animals and this way the first impression of the audience is of a happy piece of jewelry and only then, after a closer examination, they truly see the animal and its suffering. Most of them are hand painted so that every brush stroke I make allows me to connect with that animal and feel it’s pain. The electroformed pieces represent the animals that live in cold metal cages, while the silk represents a natural material that stands for blood (red silk) and the darkness of the night (black silk). By creating more feminine pieces of jewelry I am trying to nurture those animals’ suffering.
1% of all money made from selling these pieces of jewelry will be donated to an animal shelter.
Materials: plastic toys, electroformed, alpaca, silver, paint, varnish, onyx, silk, pigments, copper, gold leaf. Izabella Petrut

« My approach to jewellery often begins with a focus on the relationship between the jewellery piece and the human body. I look for simplicity and harmony in this relationship through the process of making: experimenting with materials and forms, constructing one part at a time, pausing to see the effect on the body. In the end I feel the need to leave an imperfection or add or eliminate an element, so that there is something a bit off or unexpected, at times in search of tension, rigor, sometimes for a touch of warmth. »
