Intro
Akis Goumas is a Greek artist with an extensive experience in the jewellery field. The artist is a regular presence in international exhibitions and fairs, such as JOYA, and his work can be found in several publications. Besides this Akis is interested on natural structures and in the study of prehistoric findings from the Aegean region, Greece.

Statement

…Layers lie upon layers of time and history, half hidden and half revealed. Like a myth’s internal structure of layers, folding and winding in on themselves, exploring some parts while keeping others in the shadow…

The process of designing a piece of jewelry or an object is a journey in time. I follow a path through emotions, concepts and images. It is an ensemble of elements, powered by memories, experiences and myths. My work is a medium, through which I aim to communicate with other people. I enjoy observing natural structures and studying prehistoric findings from the Aegean region with a group of archeologists.

An elaborately braided bird nest, a delicate embroidered by vasculars flower capsule, the growth lines on a mollusk shell, the nettings formed by capillary vessels inside the body, are all parts of a world in which I like to lose myself in. I admire the resourcefulness and the intelligence of the anonymous prehistoric metal workers, who with only a few tools created masterpieces. They teach me how to decode ancient tool traces and techniques. The  small findings and jewelry fragments that I study these last years have deeply influenced , my approach to  jewelry creation. The pieces that I make are three dimensional compositions-objects designed to be worn.

"Techniques, materials, colors and textures are the language through which I express myself during these journeys of creating.”
