Intro
The opulence of possibilities and materials often drown out the essence of things. The concentration on one material or one technique contains perceptions in the making and thinking. With several experimental studies this will lead us to new approaches.
Iris Bodemer thoroughly enjoys her craft: the human scale and the possibility to have materials, form and meaning converge in a single piece of jewelry. In her work she pursues maximal freedom and follows her own internal compass. Her desire as an artist is to show what touches her and what she perceives around her. (…)
 
Her creative work rests on the -interaction between her thoughts, the mental images that form there, and the concrete objects that her hands subsequently mold. Serving as interconnecting factor, her eyes continually respond to what is evolving in her hands and they decide whether or not a work is going in the right direction. For every artist, creating is a mode of thinking, with the eye as an arbiter.
/ Marjan Unger 2013
 
 
Stories and pictures – every day we pour them through a filter and therein remains, what we have to save. / Anton Chekhov
