Intro
Munich, 2007. I am still roaming around finding things, hunting for and gathering materials, like I've been doing for years.
Munich, 2007. I am still roaming around finding things, hunting for and gathering materials, like I've been doing for years. No shores here though, a few river banks and also heaps of junk. Europe: the residue of matter, contemporary and otherwise is exotic and plentiful, piled up in the flea markets, spilling onto the streets out of shops, being broken or discarded and crunched back into the earth for centuries.
So from this mass of matter I assemble these collisions of design, these Baroque, reduction resistant assemblages, representative of unruly aesthetic desires. There is a lot of pleasure here, seeking its meaning in the present, walking directly out of my lived experience. Making jewellery, I play out the tensions and beautiful collisions of my practice in a small complex space. With these miniature theatrical landscapes I am making little worlds.
