Artist list

Mari Ishikawa
MOONLIGHT SHADOW
Mari Ishikawa approaches the world in stockinged feet. Cautious, respectful, listening, looking. And photographing: capturing with the camera fleeting phenomena that fascinate her. For her new jewellery, Ishikawa took photos at night. In the gray half-light of the moon, mere memories of colours remain. Tints the naked eye cannot perceive in the moonlight only become visible to us on photos.

Ishikawa’s jewellery is related to photography through its often complicated, multilayered compilation of images. Fragments like cast off seeds, branches and shreds of moss are not, as in nature, strewn randomly over each other: the composition is clearly guided by the hand of the artist. The new Moonlight Shadow jewellery is finished in the mysterious colours of the nocturnal photos: from tender white-pink to hermetic black. Mari Ishikawa regales us with images from an elusive parallel world.
