Intro
An exhibition of jewelry created by 9 female artists from 4 different countries. What they have in common are the fact that they attended Alchimia School of Contemporary Jewelry in Florence, Italy and that they all wish to use jewelry as a way to communicate personal messages to others.
ATTA Gallery presents “Current” by ORIZZONTI,
Because jewellery is something one wears, it is why we think about what it can express. Why do we use jewellery as a means of our artistic expression? Perhaps it is because we see the possibility of a personal connection to someone through our art. Jewellery is like a poem, inscribed on the human body, our most familiar canvas.

The artist freely chooses, connects and reconstructs the materials based on an original theme and instills a message within. Sometimes the message may not be overt, but hidden deep inside the work as a metaphor.

The sensations felt by wearing the art, the weight of the object and how it feels to the touch are unique to the wearer; this is why people can attain a direct involvement in the work and connect ever more deeply with the artist’s message and spirit.

The relationship between the artist, the wearer, and the viewer - the beholder of the art, is an important factor in the completion of jewellery as a means of expression. The artist’s message comes together with the wearer’s personality, creating an entirely new poem. This becomes an expression of the individual, creating a connection with other people and their surroundings and with society. Indeed, the various dialogs inspired by the art, and the relationships established between people and objects as a result, are truly important objectives for the artist.

Our wish is for jewellery to become more widely recognized as a communication tool to enable individuals to express themselves more freely, become aware of their personal connection to society through the ideas, concepts and messages conveyed within each piece and as a fresh approach to contemporary art.
