Intro
Karen Vanmol find inspiration in architecture and nature. She finds a city without a little nature claustrophobic, but a nature landscape with no sign of humanity is too quiet.

Beyond Fashion goes abroad with the Solo Expo Evolving Habitat N°2 by Karen Vanmol at Creme de la crema at Roeselare Belgium. For more info www.beyondfashion.be and www.cremedelacrema.be

As in my earlier work, I find my inspiration in architecture and nature. Except that everything continues to evolve and change. A city without a little nature works claustrophobic for me, but a nature landscape with no sign of humanity is too quiet for me. Protecting or imitating nature, the use of natural materials in architecture, the restoring of a road surface, accidental strong shapes on a construction site, these things I find very interesting.

On my way though town, I hunt and collect. I always encounter interesting images that I use as an inspiration. In adittion, there is a certain choise of materials and colors, these are strongly influenced by memories. For example the necklaces, furniture in different colors, certain constructions. I make my story and the viewer projects its own story on top of mine.

I always start from my sources of inspiration, with these eyes I look around me. I show viewers how I look at things around me. Next to that I make jewellery and I like to use my tools and try out how materials reacts to them. Eventually I work with materials, and that provides an additional factor.
I find out the properties they possess and how I can edit them and this will count in the final result. Some techniques I use are common and you can find them in your house.

Naturally I tend to work clean and delineated, here I try against it by for example damaging materials. It gets me out of my comfort zone and it bothers me, but at the same time I want to do it.
