This latest collection of Liana is inspired by found images depicting flora and fauna.

This event is part of the 8th edition of JOYA Barcelona Art Jewellery Fair. The fair extends the range of artistic jewellery to the public. For this reason, it has created a jewelry exhibition OFF JOYA circuit in the best galleries and cultural spaces of the city of Barcelona.

The images are chosen for their visual composition or specific aesthetic elements and are given a three dimensional ‘chained interpretation’, thus converting them into wearable pieces of jewellery. Unlike the making process used in preceding work, each enamel colour is fused and fired on the chain separately and the piece is constructed afterwards from the previously enameled chain.

This allows the piece to evolve with the various types of chain and colours mixing and intertwining, poetically responding to the images as if they were ‘still lives’ , translating them into an impressionistic pixelated relief of textured layers.

In a world revolving around social media, it is hard to imagine a day go by without our daily dose of virtual interaction. An intricate part of this process, is further facilitated by the sharing of images, which offer a glimpse into the inspirations and interests of our online friends
