For this RCA / Galerie Marzee project all students got an off-the-shelf jeweller’s ring box. It was up to the students what to do with it, where you take it… there was only one rule : everything should happen inside the box, the students could not change the exterior in any way. And the box must be wrapped in an A4 size piece of paper [or similar material] that doubles as an ideas worksheet summarizing in text and images the students’ journey towards the piece contained in the box.

Love Colour Rage Satisfaction

I take a big piece of wood and cut it with my saw into a raw form.
The decision where to cut comes quickly, intuitive, as precise as it can be and as incidental as possible.
This was the first step, now I follow the feeling, a feeling that seems like an ancient knowlege of my ancestors.
Pieces of wood float in buckets of coloured water, soak in the dye, my personal driftwood.
The process has started, i try not to interrupt the constant flow of action and reaction.
I remember the five elements of a pentagon star, water, wood, fire, earth, metal.
I use my ability to transform and put my energy into materiality.
It is a big experiment and a besotted search for the right composition.
There are moments of madness, moments of relief, moments of happiness and love, it´s all in there.

In this ‘Beautiful City’ things are different. The necklaces are begin from a different approach. They are created by an action. This action is captured in the image: symmetry, duplicating, shifting, turning. They are not the maps of a place, they are the maps of an event. A part is duplicated and moved. A new measure is added and this makes the entire image shift and turn. Previously I would have seen these movements as disturbances, now they give everything a new perspective and a new place in time.

Mononoke

A house is not restricted to the space enclosed by walls. A real house rests on the earth, and in a good house the interior and exterior merge. In western Modernism this is referred to as ‘the penetration of inner and outer space’, but in fact it didn’t require modernism for countless cultures to build their houses around an open inner courtyard — which they have been doing already for centuries if not millennia. Such a garden should incorporate a water element, and two or more gardens are even better than one. The meaning of such a garden didn’t have much to do with religion, at least not any one specific religion. The garden plays a role in virtually every religion. That the interior relates well to the open air around, and that both are important to the piece of world you call home, has to do with life and with respect for the things that surround you. It has to do with the earth as the source of food, with living greenery and with water as vital to all life. And yes, it has to do with notions of death, of being buried and life after death, preferably in some paradise.

New Places – abstraction of a landscape

Starting up with a variety of colorful images from a landscape. Sketching, cutting papers, building models … setting up a kind of map in my studio. Choosing materials … oxidized silver, gold, enamel, reconstructed stones. Thinking about purpose, meanings and limitations. Giving each part the right shape, size and place. Keeping the playful mood.
Necklaces seemed to be the perfect object for my theme, no up, no down, playing around the neck, constantly finding new directions. Wearing the object, become inhabitant of the new place.

View

My main source of inspiration is painted metal, machinery and houses.
I use materials that might be thought of as useless in the world of traditional jewellery. I often use a coloured surface on my materials since I am fascinated by paint used as protection and a covering, decorative layer. The applied colour is a layer of paint sometimes a bit worn off, which puts the object in the perspective of time.
The starting point for the series VIEW was a view over a river bank. Late summer, early autumn and the air felt fresh and reliving after a hot summer. The smell of moist soil and the cool blue sky. Still a bit of green grass. The landscape dressed in beige colour tones just before the trees turn red. This colour scale merged together with shapes from industrial landscapes, silhouettes of buildings, bridges and train tracks train tracks stretching across the fields.
