Eun Yeong Jeong

Mesos enrera ja vaig incloure un post d’aquesta artista que construeix joies inspirades en la tensió entre la vida i la mort. Sobretot, el que més m’ha agradat d’aquestes peces és el tractament que fa del color i les textures i com ens apropa subtilment trossets de natura. Actualment exposa a Schmidt Art Center.

A few months ago I included a post about this artist who constructs jewelry inspired by the tension between life and death. Overall, I liked the way she treats color and texture in these pieces, and how she delicately incorporates small fragments of nature. Currently on exhibit at Schmidt Art Center.

    Lovely pieces, BUT is it only me who sometimes wonder about the sizes, how the jewelleries interact to the body and how the artist have done the ”needle” functions to this in, for the moment” just” a object?!

    It’s always very nice, very “clean”, handsome, pretty photos…
    But IF you can’t see the size, and the way you wear it, how can you be sure that it is a pieces of jewellery?!

    Sometimes I can see these beautiful, clean photos as some kind of objects, sculptures in a public park etc.
    When you see these photos in another context you haven’t a clue that it is jewelleries we see.

    Just a thought who has run to my brain many times… I wonder if others think the same of all this absolutely good photos?!
    The photos are not a problem at all, it’s always very nice pics to look at and also very sharp so it’s possible to see details… But I think that two very important details are missing, the size and the way to wear it.

    Now it’s new weekend AGAIN!
    I don’t know where the time goes.

    Take care and keep up the good work!

    With love and thoughts Paula.

    We are seeing images and not the real pieces, of course this is a big problem because we can’t apreciate real size, color, texture,… It’s a lot of information and perhaps some of this pics don’t are in person how we are imagining, but after all I think it’s like a miracle that we can share all of that.

    Have a nice weekend Paula!

    My point is that it is a” trend” to show a nice surface, a good image… And that have been some kind of ”problem” for the jewellery makers for a very long time, this isn’t a new phenomena… But it’s a little bite pity I think, that we can’t or want to show pieces on bodies… I do the same… So I’m not better then anyone else… Much because of that I don’t want to have “time” scales in my photos, which clothes and so on show which time the photo is taken.
    But I agree, it ´s fantastic anyway that we can take part and also share so much good stuff with each other! Absolutely a big bonus and a fantastic opportunity to see nice, beautiful jewelleries and photos too!

    This is more a thought that I always think about when I look at jewellery art, that “we” show it in for me 2-D way, when everyone working more or less 3-D.
    I think it’s interesting to talk about it and hear way, and what others think about it too.

    Take care and have a great nice weekend!
    Today the sun in shinning here in Gothenburg!

    With love and thoughts Paula.
