Statement

It all begins with the line. Camilla Luihn’s work transcends artistic genres and disciplines, but the drawings are always the center of attraction.

As Manuel Vilhena expressed it in his text for The Cloud, the Wave and the Koi Remix, a drawing is "the physical expression of an idea"; this description is well suited to Luihn’s project. The drawings are inspired by and refer to traditional Japanese tattoo art and specific artistic genres from the 1900s. The transformation from drawings to jewellery however does not necessarily remind us of two-dimensional body art until the art moves with the body, across the skin. In this way the drawing literally grows in volume.

The hierarchical structures in which jewellery art can exist; its meaningfulness and her choice of materials are courageous. She works with very different elements, with humoristic balance and balanced humour.
