Giampaolo Babetto is indisputable one of the grand masters of the contemporary jewellery. Raised and educated in the academy of Marion Pinton in Padua, the philosophy and art of the renaissance, especially the architecture of Andrea Palladio had a deep impress on him.
The basic idea of Palladio, that the human has to be in the center of the artistic work becomes appreciable and portable.
The exhibition represents at all points the subject of the current 10th symposium “Schmuck-Denken”: The Art and the Good Life!

Mario Pinton naît en 1919 à Padoue. Il est le fils d’un graveur qui lui transmettra le goût duraffinement et du travail du métal. Ses études le portent tout d’abord à l’Ecole Nationale d’Artde sa ville natale où il travaille l’argent.
 Puis, il obtient son diplôme d’orfèvre à l’Institut National d’Art de Venise. Enfin à Milan, il apprend l’architecture à l’Académie des Beaux-Arts.Il retourne alors à Padoue pour fonder, au sein de l’Institut Pietro Selvatico,  ce qui va constituer un véritable mouvement artistique en ébullition : «L’Ecole de Padoue».
Les adeptes de ce mouvement ont tous en commun certaines préoccupations stylistiques telles que le travail de l’or, une parfaite maîtrise technique et un goût prononcé pour la pureté des formes. Si le matériau utilisé est des plus traditionnels, la conception des bijoux n’en demeure pas moins avant-gardiste. De cette école sont sortis les plus grands créateurs italiens comme Francesco Pavan, Giampaolo Babetto, Graziano Visintin pour les premières générations, Annamaria Zanella ou encore Stefano Marchetti pour les plus jeunes.

Maria-Rosa Franzin: Jewels wearable thoughts
The body ornament is the visualisation of a thought, of states of mind, of sensations aroused by a painting, by music, by a particolar detail of reality.This is the definition suggested when one observes the jewellery created by Maria Rosa Franzin, artist and goldsmith, who received her training at the “Pietro Selvatico” Art Institute of Padua, where she also teaches “Progettazione Orafa (Goldsmith Planning and design).And it is thanks to her teaching commitment at the Pietro Selvatico for years the only school in Italy that has been active in the field of goldsmith research- that was stimulated to abandon her first passion, painting, and choose jewellery.
The change of medium, if, on the one hand required a new awareness of the problems involved in the design and realization of a wearable object, on the other hand has not changed the innate pictorial sensitivity of the artist. Indeed a firm pictorial approach distinguishes all Maria Rosa Franzin’s works, where it is possible to emphasize two principal lines of creative elaboration. The “screenjewel” is composed of gold and silver laminas on which the artist works with oxidation, sanding, engraving, filing, acid baths and inclusions in pure gold. On the surface of the jewel, therefore, emerge images. vision of sidereal space, of boundless territories and landscape, at times even succeeding in evoking expressions of sound, the whistling of the wind, the rustling of leaves.
The protagonist in the necklaces “Hartung” and “Lightness” is the thin steel wire, a graphical sign that infuses the jewels with a slight vibration and at the same time allows it to expand beyond its structural limits, creating a field of forces around the metal elements.

 Graziano Visintin : The geometry of gold
I studied the goldsmith’s art at the “Pietro Selvatico” Institute of Art in Padua, from 1968 to 1973, where I studied under Mario Pinton, Francesco Pavan and Giampaolo Babetto, in whose studio I worked for two years. I have been teaching Laboratory/Workshop Techniques at the same institute since 1976. At first, my works were configured as a reduction of shape and volume, where solids lose their mass yet preserving their outline. Primary geometrical elements such as squares, triangles, circles and ovals aligned, criss-crossed or superimposed, confronting the compactness of gold, an element that was never abandoned even when ebony and ivory were used.
Gold has always fascinated me. It is a precious material, not so much for its pecuniary value, but for its characteristics of workability (malleability and ductility) and therefore requires the utmost attention. In the eighties shapes were elongated, emptied, dematerialised to the point of becoming brilliant light. Double elements, criss-crossing traces of gold thread outline necklaces offering points of incidence and reverberation where light creates extraordinary effects.
Circles, squares, triangles are apparently simple elements, but I have been fascinated by them in trying to understand the expressive potential of primary shapes that are always different when observed with attention. The homogeneous continuity of the circle, confronting itself with its centre, recalls the processes of individuation; in the triangle the polarised disparity recalls the value of force and energy exerted in space. In the nineties I added a strong pictorial effect to my works. Niello, obtained by the fusion of silver, copper, lead, sulphur and borax, is an alloy that was well known by the Egyptians. Sometimes I use it as a colour or to contrast the splendid yellow of gold, and then they are beaten laminas, lozenges, trapeziums, that form compound elements.
The minimal absoluteness of shape almost creates writings on the object, and then enamel, made more unique and precious by thin, superimposed gold leaf, integrates with the laminas joined by small cubes that create geometrical relationships of logical, and rigorous design. Measure, equilibrium, simplicity but above all, vocation to geometry creates the quality of shape in apparently simple objects .

EXPO ‘Hand-Made’ – Galerie Louise Smit, Amsterdam (NL) – 1er Avril-4 Mai 2012

Hand-Made : Annamaria Zanella & Renzo Pasquale
01 04 2012 – 04 05 2012

Annamaria Zanella :
The structural emphasis which has always characterised her work is also visible in its compositional freedom, which apparently moves away from the rigour of geometric abstraction typical of the Padua School. Her deconstructed works are therefore always based on rules which seem to be inverted, worn by contradictions, discordant elements, unpredictable opposites. « Poor materials », pigments mixed with lacquers, patinas, niello, oxides and powders corrode surfaces and change the ideal project which, however, can always be recognised.
The dynamic colours of surfaces are not so much informal as imbued with the movements of Action Painting. Zanella’s abundant use of materials unusual in jewellery, such as paper, cardboard, rags and iron, may seem to recall neo-Dadaism, but her work is far from being absurd or onirical; it is always concentrated between compressed emotions and openly expressed rationalism.
Creativity, strength, sensitivity and courageous inventiveness make this artist unique in her formal solutions and in her assiduous and constant experimentation with materials.

Renzo Pasquale :
The geometrical shapes, transparencies, the superb ability in working precious stones like rock crystal, granites, jasper, etc. impressed Prof. Mario Pinton who, as head of the Pietro Selvatico Institute of Art, charges Renzo Pasquale with setting up an artistic laboratory of hardstone and semi-precious stones and also to teach this art to the students of the Institute.
Teaching brought Renzo to confront himself with other goldsmith artists of the Pietro Selvatico Institute of Art: Francesco Pavan, Giampaolo Babetto, Diego Piazza… It is with them that he starts to exhibit his works in various exhibitions form the eighties onwards. His work reveals the transparencies of the material.
The infinite variations of light that filters through these sculptures made of rock crystal or black, opaque granite. Sculptures that can be worn without conveying the impression of a redundancy of lines and volumes. Essentiality of design, concrete perceptions of thought of Euclidean beauty.
Pondered geometries, meditation on the study of shape, equations of pure mathematics: all seem to dissolve in the emotional impact transmitted by these creations of his, that talk not so much of stone but speak a language of pure poetry and perfect equilibriums.
The displacement of solids, sections, torsions, slippage, cutting, breaking through of solids such as cubes, cones, pyramids, cylinders created in different-coloured stones, always matched with small portions of gold. In this case gold emphasizes a drawing, enhances a section, receives the perspective breaking-down of a stone wall.
Plastic transitions of the inorganic, apparently indomitable material (stone) that softens as it is transformed in the hands of the artist. The transition and change in the Paduan artist’s most recent works are evident.
From the consolidated enquiry regarding shape in space of the previous years now reveals a series of pins where « going beyond » is transformed into the play of opaque transparencies, in secret rooms, of misty glass where a window seems to be made of, and created by, light.
A portrait of time, a photographic shot engraved in quartz to look for new emotions that tell of personal abstract perceptions.
A set of landscapes of the life and soul that this artist transforms with the hard stone into delicate water colours that partly evoke the contrasting shades and « chiaroscuro » of the great Dutch painters of the seventeenth century.
