Intro
Picking out colours, choosing materials, thinking about my purpose, reflecting on meanings and limitations.
Giving each element its shape, assigning it a size and its place, connecting it further to circumscribe in to space, having it all transform into a necklace.

Artist list

Karin Johansson
"In the beginning, a variety of many-coloured images of a city: meeting points, streets, people, blue skies, night and day. Capturing the pulse, the movement, or the silence. Sketching, cutting paper, creating a map of sorts in my studio, micro and macro at once as my perspective.
Picking out colours, choosing materials, thinking about my purpose, reflecting on meanings and limitations.
Giving each element its shape, assigning it a size and its place, connecting it further to circumscribe in to space, having it all transform into a necklace. 
No up, no down, playing around the neck, constantly finding new directions"
