Dimensions of Distance
Through composing jewelry works I explore relationships between practices and techniques, artificial objects and their interconnection. Similarities among traditional art - making processes, industrial production and art training I received led my interests towards experimental practices of combining artificial as well as natural found objects. It is a game between objects / materials and myself - by keeping using the same artifact as a basic module, variation and transformation of forms have no end. All feeling and thinking reveal on the surfaces of jewelry subtly through composition, textures and usage of shibuichi, silver and precious stones. My work aims to change the viewer’s perception of objects and materials through closer observation. Value is not always in the material itself, it is in our perception of it.
"She destroys and reconstructs materials digesting her past experience. Found materials of Fiskars historical industrial part were sliced to create the surface that looks as if the moment was frozen. Gemstones flicker iridescently. The stone-like surface is reflecting time in their solidity and permanence. She uses materials as her non-verbal language.
Creating a suggestion to the observer without using figurative elements provokes a wider range of possibilities of reflections. For this reason, the creative process becomes extremely important, the spontaneity of the form and the composition are fundamental, the imperfection becomes the strength and the fragment infuses a feeling of completeness."
