Artist list

Javier Moreno Frías
A field lies fallow.
The earth rests, it has just one season to collect energy for the coming years of sowing and harvesting.

The alternation of exhaustion and recovery: for centuries a set routine helped people to cultivate their land. Nowadays man has started to exploit his own body. With a comparable system of performance and relaxation taking turns, someone’s shape becomes a proof of willpower. Achieving as distinction, muscles as adornment.

Strength as demonstration of one’s identity. Javier Moreno Frias develops jewellery in reaction to this phenomenon. In his pieces he employs the specific artificial materials used in sports equipment. Instead of displaying an imposing physique, he proposes the use of his ornaments as a statement. In amazement he recalls nature’s autonomy:the gradual processes, traditional cycles and logical results. The haven of the fallow field.
