Statement

I like to think of the art of jewelry as an artistic support/complement; exploring the relationship of jewel, art and fashion with the user, and myself. This relationship is born in its making, the Choice made, the intimate space, the ornamental aspect, beauty itself. From intuition to material, from object to body/matter, to tact. In each piece I build and find part of my own world. I am interested in others discovering/unveiling their own part. They are ornaments, charms, objects of desire.

Remarks

Coming from an artistic family, Gabriela Horvat, studied professional chefs cook and advanced industrial design student, forms herself at wheel pottery, photography, art history among other fields. In 2001 she definitely dives into the jewelry world. Working with different techniques and materials, she brings her childhood experiences into textiles works of jewelry. After playing with threads and yarns from her mother [artist] she reconstructed recreations of her memories. Two years ago Gabriela and and Paula Dipierro, her mother, started working, in some pieces together. Last June 2008 she opens her own gallery-shop, in Buenos Aires, a space devoted to exhibiting her own jewelry and other artist’s work.

Selfportraits- Cocoons
The choice of these pieces explores my childhood memories, tangled in the yarns, unwinding spools of wool, building spaces. These cocoons represent those spaces to hide secrets…shells/conks of fantasies. The basket weaving gets confused with tangles and knots, odd pieces, lost and found, the smell of colors. Fortuitous and intuitive allows the thread to envelop and become master. Work is focused on continuity, progression, repetition and variation, eternal and beautiful. The endless thread turns into shell and shapes all those nooks that breathe out. Material, shape, texture, void, color develop as the interior world of each piece.
