Intro
(...)In seemingly banal images of plants or kitchenware she manages through a sensible working process, where choices of composition, involvement of other materials and technical expressions transmits thoughts about the impermanence of man and the inevitable passing of time.(...)

Artist list

Bettina Speckner
Speckner uses different photographic techniques to create her jewellery. Old Ferrotypes from the Victorian era, photo etching on plants and every day objects, pictures of landscapes, kettles and cows etched into enamel are accompanied by gems, corals and pearls. From these images Speckner creates new worlds. The image in itself invite you to reading and speculation, but Speckner takes control over the content and guides the viewer towards new ways of interpretation. In seemingly banal images of plants or kitchenware she manages through a sensible working process, where choices of composition, involvement of other materials and technical expressions transmits thoughts about the impermanence of man and the inevitable passing of time.
