ENVIRONNEMENT MODERNE

…. environnement urbain : travaux, béton, ferrailles, échafaudages, palissades, barrières, outillages, machineries, matériaux de construction, lignes, cartes, plans, routes, échangeurs, sens interdits …….. démolition, reconstruction ….  tout cet environnement, même hostile ou menaçant, fascine ….. un moment, le mouvement est arrêté, « photographié », pensé, intériorisé puis réinterprété selon chacun, retraduit, « miniaturisé » pour devenir bijou … une construction nouvelle, en quelque sorte ….

Linda Hughes Square Neckpiece and bracelet

« Colour plays a very important part in your jewellery and it is often bold and bright. Would you consider this a signature style or do see yourself moving towards a different palette in the future?
The palette relates directly to street signage but I do feel free to incorporate other colours and don’t feel inhibited by it.
What ignited your interest in signs? Was it marked by a particular experience or moment?
Some of the urban landscape in Australia seems particularly contrived, like a theatre set. A mixture of international influences all mixed up, often without connecting to the environment. My attention is drawn to signs as ‘street furniture’ if you like, ‘props’. «

Linda Hughes – Necklace

« In her new body of work, contemporary jeweller Linda Hughes explores the ‘stripe’, historically favoured as a metonym for danger, exclusion and as a device to attract attention. Hazard signage, ubiquitous in the urban landscape, changes when placed on the body as jewellery. In this exhibition, Hughes applies the visual language of the stripe to the sculptural form of the wearable. Displayed against as a series of graphic backdrops, the work explores the tension between body and environment, critiquing the complex theatre of public space. »

Linda Hughesnecklace  – « It’s got legs » exhibition

« Shared Zone, is both the culmination of Linda Hughes master’s research and her first solo exhibition.
Hughes utilises the familiar urban language of invisible everyday objects such as road signs, posts and hazard markings. Juxtaposing these symbols on the body she uses them to define space and create landscape. Her work invites the wearer to become a part of the “theater of the wearable” that arises when the brooches, neckpieces and bangles are placed so as to interact and create their roles – transforming the body into a stage. »

Benita Dekel, Massconstruction – silver & concrete (ciment)

« Benita Dekel, a graduate of the Department of Jewelry Design at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design (Israël), developed a series of jewelry pieces that combine silver with concrete. The results of the combination of concrete, which we usually associate with heavy, industrial construction, and delicate constructions in silver is that despite being made of concrete the pieces do not appear heavy. The shapes of the pieces, which are very familiar, almost as though they have been taken from various construction sites, manage to surprise both in their shape and new function«

« …my recent work presents deteriorated architectural forms as objects of adornment. As a series of brooches, they reference jewelry’s historical representation of wealth, while their forms capture degraded fragments of local architecture. Folds and cuts in iron surfaces invite peering into their voids, where delicate patterns set in colored enamel offset the dark metal façade. Reminiscent of wallpaper, the patterned interior surfaces speak of a careful care and consideration put into adorning ones own personal space. Voyeuristic glimpses inside the pieces reveal worn surfaces suggestive of domestic interiors.   » (2010)

My work reflects my intimate world. Often I construct abstract versions of rooms, buildings, boxes, nests, clusters, and cities that mirror my feelings, dreams, and fears. Some of them relate to memories I have, people in my past, my family history, others to the people around me. Yet others deal with my needs for protection, my fear of being locked in or shut out and my fascination with visible and invisible boundaries and territories. I am intrigued by the process in which walls simultaneously define and shut out space. I love the imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete; cycles of growth and decay, eroded geological structures and abandoned buildings inspire me. I often make unorthodox combinations of materials to create tension and balance. Sometimes I use found objects: quiet mirrors of other intimate worlds.

EXPO ‘¡Genial! New Jewelry from Spain’ – Velvet da Vinci Gallery, USA – 15 Juin-17 Juill. 2011

La nueva joyería en España

All images from ¡Genial!  New Jewelry from Spain at Velvet da Vinci Gallery,

La galería Velvet da Vinci reúne en la exposición ¡Genial! a 18 artistas de diferentes generaciones representativos de la joyería contemporánea española en la actualidad; aunque de orígenes diversos todos ellos tienen en común su relación con Barcelona.
Repasando la geografía española observamos que se impone la tradición más conservadora y, en gran medida, prevalece la idea de que el valor de la joya recae principalmente en el valor del material con el que está hecha. Las nuevas joyas ya no son necesariamente de metales y piedras preciosas, sino que los artistas joyeros utilizan toda clase de técnicas y materiales como madera, plástico, esmaltes, porcelana, resinas, hueso, tejidos, viejos objetos, fotografías, etcétera para atraer la atención del espectador, otra característica que las distingue es el tamaño, lejos de estar sujetas a una regla, las medidas de estas joyas pueden causar sorpresa y así encontrarnos por ejemplo con enormes broches que funcionan como una escultura ya que buena parte del valor artístico de las piezas viene dado por el trabajo conceptual que encierra cada una de ellas.
Los nuevos conceptos de joyería se han ido introduciendo poco a poco en nuestro país a través de las escuelas y galerías que se encuentran principalmente en Barcelona y su área de influencia. Esta ciudad mediterránea, cruce de caminos y puerta hacia Europa, de mentalidad abierta al conocimiento de nuevas propuestas, está impregnada de dinamismo creativo y actividad comercial, por cuyo motivo muchos joyeros procedentes, sobretodo, de diferentes lugares de España y de Latinoamérica así como del resto de Europa y del mundo en general coinciden en este punto en algún momento de su trayectoria artística para participar en exposiciones, compartir experiencias, ampliar estudios o, simplemente, buscar inspiración.
La joyería entendida como objeto artístico, como una reflexión original y única, va ocupando un espacio que hasta hace poco en España estaba vacío. Nuevas galerías, ferias especializadas, workshops, exposiciones y conferencias sirven para conectar con el público y atraer a nuevos coleccionistas. A pesar de que nos queda un gran camino por recorrer, sobretodo si comparamos nuestra situación con la de los países del norte de Europa, seguimos avanzando y las nuevas herramientas de comunicación permiten que nos aproximemos cada vez más deprisa al resto del mundo.
Contar historias, reinterpretar símbolos, ensalzar la naturaleza, representar paisajes de la memoria, buscar la sorpresa, indagar en las tradiciones, motivar la reflexión y enlazar elementos geométricos son sólo algunos de los argumentos de los que se sirven estos artistas para la realización de sus joyas. Ramon Puig Cuyàs hace referencia a una arquitectura ligera a través de sus composiciones armónicas construídas con líneas y planos que se interseccionan creándose espacios que invitan a un recorrido desde diferentes puntos de vista. En las piezas de Judy McCaig aparecen elementos figurativos que se repiten y la imagen de los pájaros acaba convirtiéndose en un símbolo que evoca el movimiento y la libertad. En sus joyas Grego García Tebar transporta sentimientos engarzando sus sueños en ellas para que éstos acaben depositados en la memoria. Silvia Walz nos acerca a los tiempos escolares de cuando nos iniciábamos en el estudio de la geometría.
Desde las propuestas más conceptuales a las más formales en el conjunto de los artistas participantes, algunos de los más significados de la joyería contemporánea española, encontramos trabajos realizados con materiales muy diversos como metales, madera, porcelana, resina, esmaltes o tejidos. Teniendo siempre en cuenta el diálogo permanente entre el cuerpo humano y la joya viven sumergidos en sus procesos creativos enriqueciendo el conocimiento, experimentando con materiales y buscando nuevos recursos para, a través de sus diferentes lenguajes, elaborar pequeñas obras de arte como las reunidas en esta exposición las cuales son una clara muestra de lo que se está haciendo actualmente en nuestro país, un trabajo heterogéneo sin marcadas líneas comunes emanando libertad. (Montserrat Lacomba Barcelona, May 2011)

Contemporary Spanish Jewelry
Velvet da Vinci Gallery has curated an exhibition entitled ¡Genial! presenting 18 artists of different generations who represent contemporary Spanish jewelry. Though the artists’ backgrounds are varied, all have a common link with Barcelona.
When contemplating Spanish jewelry, it is obvious that the most conservative tradition plays a major role along with the idea that the value of a piece of jewelry is found mostly in the value of the material from which it is made. These traditions still hold true to a great extent. The new jewelry, however, isn’t necessarily made from precious metals and stones, but today’s jeweler artists use all kinds of technologies and materials like wood, plastic, enamels, porcelain, resins, bones, fabrics, found objects, photographs, etcetera to attract the attention of the spectator. Another characteristic that distinguishes them is size. Far from being subject to a rule, the sizes of these jewels can provoke surprise. For example, we can see enormous brooches as if they were sculptures since a large part of the artistic value of such pieces is thanks to the conceptual ideas that surround each of them.
Such new concepts of jewelry have been introduced to our country little by little through schools and galleries that are found mostly in Barcelona and its sphere of influence. This Mediterranean city, which is the crossroads between Spain and Europe, has an open mind to knowledge of new ideas. It is impregnated with dynamic creative and commercial activity, and it is that motive that draws many jewelers from other parts of Spain and Latin America, as well as from the rest of Europe and the world in general, to travel there at some time in their artistic trajectories to take part in exhibitions, share experiences, to study or simply to look for inspiration.
To think of jewelry as an artistic object, as an original and unique reflection, is occupying a space that in Spain had been empty even in recent times. New galleries, fairs specific to contemporary jewelry, workshops, exhibitions and conferences have been good for making a connection with the public and attracting new collectors. Even though we still have a long, hard road to follow, especially when comparing our situation to that in other Northern European countries, we forge ahead with new communication tools allowing us to quickly become closer to the rest of the world.
Telling stories, reinterpreting symbols, celebrating nature, representing memories, seeking surprise, investigating traditions, motivating the reflection and joining of geometrical elements are but a few of the arguments these artists pursue for the accomplishment of their jewels. Ramon Puig Cuyàs refers to an airy architecture through his harmonic compositions constructed with lines and planes that are intercut to create spaces that invite us to tour from different points of view. In Judy McCaig’s pieces, there appear figurative elements that repeat themselves to then become completed by the image of birds that becomes a symbol to evoke movement and freedom. In her jewels, Grego García Tebar transports feelings from her dreams by connecting them with her jewels so those feelings become deposited in our memories. Silvia Walz takes us back to our school days when we were beginning a study of geometry.
From the most conceptual to the most formal among the participating artists, all of those represented are among the most significant in Spanish jewelry. We find works realized with very diverse materials including metals, wood, porcelain, resin, enamels or fabric. Always keeping in mind the permanent dialog between the human body and the piece of jewelry, these artists live immersed in their creative processes, enriching the greater knowledge, experimenting with materials, and looking for new resources across different languages to elaborate small pieces of art such as those assembled in this exhibition. They are distinct examples of what is being done nowadays in our country — heterogeneous work without obvious lines of demarcation, based on freedom. (Montserrat Lacomba -Translation by R. Weis)

“En el 2000 empecé a crear joyas. Me gusta experimentar y trabajar con diferentes materiales como plata, cobre, esmaltes, tejidos, resina, etcétera. En 2008 empecé a publicar Mar de Color Rosa, un blog dedicado la recopilar y compartir información sobre joyería contemporánea. Desde 2009 formo parte del grupo Joyas Sensacionales, coordinado por la joyera Silvia Walz.”
En cuanto a los materiales, le gusta experimentar, pero utiliza principalmente cobre, plata, latón, resina, textil… Suele buscar la manera de trabajar el color a base de oxidaciones, esmaltes o pinturas.

« In 2008 I had the idea of founding a working group for jewellers in Barcelona. Personally, I would have loved that idea having finished my studies at the Fachochschule Hildesheim in 1990.
University is a sort of island where the students can live out interesting ideas and make them happen without too many difficulties.
The difficulties come precisely one month after finishing ones studies: Now what?
Suddenly, survival is all that matters … What can or can’t sell? These are questions which hardly mattered when studying.
Then, those pretty thoughts and creative projects all fade into the past and one sinks easily into the everyday and any motivation for making interesting jewellery completely disappears.
The Taller Perill, founded by Alicia Giraldez gave me the chance to extend my work as a teacher at the Escola Massana, such that in 2008 I suggested the “Joyas Sensacionales”    ( Sensational Jewellery) project for both ex- students and jewellers who wanted to work together.
Sensations, feelings were precisely the subjects with which I wished to stimulate and motivate my group of people. The themes chosen had to be open enough to give everyone the chance to find their own way, whilst I also wished to allow space for an exchange and for open discussion.
Thus, in September 2008, I began to involve a number of innocent ex-students in my initial project, rapidly finding enough victims for the first theme “the forgotten”. The Galeria Amber-Art provided the amber and exhibited the finished works in their gallery.
Here was another important point for me: I not only wished to motivate the jewellers into making personal work, but also hoped that these pieces could be shown in galleries and further, that they would sell.
In this way, over the past 2 years we have shown different projects in various galleries in Spain and Andorra.
So far the group comprises 16 artists. 11 of these have been there since the beginning and 5 have since joined us. Depending on the theme, there are guest artists who have formed part of the project’s display.
I hope that we can still share many sensations and that this project has plenty of life ahead.
Who wouldn’t want to live on an island where the market isn’t the driving force? »  Silvia Walz 2010

virus de la COMPARAISON …..? Ramon Puig Cuyas et ….. Barcelone sous influence

Assiste-t-on à une « Ramon-Puig-Cuyas_t_isation » du bijou Barcelonais ??????

Des broches comme des petits tableaux, ou comme des petits plateaux où l’on aurait déposé des objets trouvés au cours d’un voyage intérieur …. même séries de petits branchages, petits cailloux, mêmes petites attaches … le résultat est attrayant, sympathique, … tentant …. :-)

Laura Martínez « caza el aire que se mueve entre los objetos que no existen »

« Cuando propuse el tema “Lo efímero y lo duradero tenía miedo de que hicieran joyas que ni si quiera aguantaran hasta la exposición, por lo efímero, o bien joyas hechas para toda una vidaa base de diamantes.
Afortunadamente,el grupo de las Joyeras Sensacionales han sabido tratar este tema de una forma mucho más sutil y delicada. A todas les gusta loduradero, pero en el fondo de sus corazones adoran lo efímero.
Con este tema las 15 joyerasde pronto se han convertido en una especie de cazadoras de momentos.-Quizás se puede aplicar la frase delfilósofo español José Ortega y Gasset con unos pequeños retoques, « La caza es todo lo que se hace antes y después de la muerte del momento. La muerte es imprescindible para que exista la cacería del momento » (como es lógico él habla de animales no de momentos)
Elisa Pellacani caminando en busca de su presa encuentra una casa de abejas y la funde en plata.Una estructura perfecta que había sido contenedor efímero para sus habitantes y que se convierte así en un testigo duradero de este momento. Montse Basora, también inspirada por los insectos construye capullosdemariposas. Lola (Gratacos) por otro camino encuentraunas ramitas de árbol y las baña en porcelana para convertirlas en cuerpos huecos que lucen con su fragilidad. Mientras los objetos de porcelana de Lola carecen de esqueletos, RosaNogués reconstruyeesqueletos paralos fragmentos de porcelana encontradosy dibuja así contenedoresimaginarios. María Lóbezrecoge impresionesde piedras preciosas, el resultado son capullos de piedras. La piedra y el papel intercambian los roles, lo duradero desaparece y se queda el papel, que es efímero. Xus Anglès cose fragmentos con un hilo de plata de 2metros. El contenedor que aparece delante de nuestros ojos es una trampa para los recuerdos.
Tanto Xus, como Montse, María, Rosa, Lola y Elisa creancontenedores vacíos. Vacíos, pero que de alguna forma habían estado llenos y nos sirven para entender el paso del tiempo.
Fàtima Tocornalpor el otro lado, va persiguiendo los momentos de alegría. Sus caras, hechas con esmaltes, nos hablan de estos pequeños momentos, que en cuanto nos damos cuenta ya han desaparecido. Para StéphanieBarbié lo efímero significa movimiento y lo duradero es estático, sus piezas son el resultado del diálogo entre estos dos extremos. También para Montserrat Lacomba el movimiento, en su caso el movimiento del mar, es la fuente de inspiración y al mismo tiempo lo usa como metáfora de lo efímero. Gisselle Moralesse concentra en la luna y el sol y crea pequeños mundos llenos de colores y reflejos de luz.Eva Girbes construye monumentos paralas relaciones entre humanos, que para ella son lo más efímero y duradero a la vez. Nicole Deuster intenta atrapar los momentos en un pin-board, como si fueran insectos de un coleccionista yLaura Martínez caza el aire que se mueve entre los objetos que no existen. Alicia (Giraldez) crea una criatura hecha de material efímero, mientras Isabel (Herrera)  nos recuerda que todo material es efímero.
Aquítenemos los trofeos de las cazadoras de momentos. Se trata de instantáneas de la vida que con estas piezasde alguna manera se convierten enduraderas. Como se trata de joyas en algún momento formarán partede otro momento,siendo llevadas.« Silvia Walz, coordinadora
