Past, Loss, Future
The collection tells a story of aging, personal loss and life before and after big turning points in life. The pieces have a sense of comfort and safety to them and look very heavy, but are actually really light. Like a person who carries great sadness whithin, I wanted my pieces to be very quiet and scream very loud at the same time.
Every piece is unique, it is entirely impossible to make two of a kind.
I find the subjectivity of visual reality intriguing. I have studied how to educate the visual mind to see and think differently, objectively, tried consciously and intentionally to change the perception of beauty by exposing my mind to another, controversial reality or truth. Through this study I have also been forced to change my perception towards my own reflection, thus accepting a new way of looking not only at myself and my past, but the world and the people around me. This series is a reflection of the things I now see more objectively.
The “Loss”- collection is a continuum of the “Past, Loss, Future”- collection. In this collection I have been concentrating on personal loss, sadness, and loneliness; on what happens after you loose someone you love. I have gone even deeper into the emotional turmoil of an individual person and tried hard to capture these feelings in my work.
35- a token for every winter I survived
35 brooches, one brooch for every year of my life. These pieces are made in remembrance and respect of all the hard winters I have been forced to endure. It is my intention to continue making one brooch every year for the rest of my life.
Miscellaneous pieces of jewellery made between the years 2006-2014.
