Malissa Kuznicki
One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” – Carl Jung
 
Jewelry's place in our lives is profound. It is tangible, wearable communication. It lives with us in a way that is more intimate than most other art forms. Jewelry is worn on the body and becomes a marker of how we wish to be perceived by the world.  In this way, it is deeply personal.  Jewelry is the armor we live in.  In times of such great uncertainty, we feel the need for armor even more.
 
Through my work, I investigate the relationship between what we express and what we wish to keep hidden.  I am interested in the dichotomies within our own psyches and the multiple senses of self.  I experiment with the tension between how we want to be perceived and how we see ourselves.  By literally placing what we wish to hide on the outside of the body, the function of jewelry is subverted and the difference is laid bare.  I continue to explore the tenuous balance between our dueling natures through narratives, materiality, and form. /
