Intro
ATTA Gallery is proud to present a special exhibition of contemporary jewelry, aka wearable art, by local and international artists, focusing on the reflection of the popular Pinterest culture (www.pinterest.com), where people “pin” photographic images of their interests as their visual inspirations.

In the past decade, personal phones with cameras have propelled the democratization of photography to its new height.  Photographic images have been posted and shared widely on the Internet, though this might not be the case with art photography per se.

However, the non-art photography still somehow has its foot to the art world. Many artists capture visual inspirations with their personal phones. They use these photographic images for their mood boards, or even as main materials for their art pieces. Some post them on social media platforms. These photos then get circulated on Shutterstock, shared on Facebook, re-posted on Instragram and pinned on Pinterest.

Pinterest, unlike other social media platforms, serves a purpose as a ‘catalogue of ideas’ that inspires users to ‘go out and do that thing’, rather than as an image-based social network, according to the company CEO Ben Silbermann. (Wikipedia.org)  
 
Pinterest is widely used by creators of craft, art and design. Photographs of drawings and paintings, as well as graphic images, are “pinned” and used as visual inspirations on the user’s boards. It has become a rather handy and important part in the creative process for many.

Creative and artistic manipulation of visual inspirations in the form of photographs into wearable pieces of art can be examined in this exhibition. Jewelry artists who have worked with ATTA Gallery in the past were invited to submit one piece of wearable art…with only two requirements in mind:  a visual inspirational PHOTOGRAPH and a “PIN”
