Her microscopic investigation dissects the universe from the tiny tip of a leaf to evince the unconquerable logic of nature and announce an infinite life-giving force still under forest shadow.
. 
. Sheetikoff says that her works “relate to the transition from night to day, representing the cyclical and non-linear relationship of life." In her words, the idea of naming her exhibition “This Way” related to a decision made 'randomly' that may then become a determining factor, such as being in a dark forest at a fork in the path and choosing which side to take. Or yet taking one leaf from thousands of others to craft a jewel from it, or the subtle relations of form and content revealed during the process of artistic creation.
. 
. For this set of pieces, Marina Sheetikoff has combined impressive contents: personal memory, nature as artifice, nocturnal dreams, and fears; but also, the light of daybreak and yet more: technique. Subtle contrasts, cataloguing colors, materials, and shapes. Mutations from biology to zoology. Minimal and infinite; light and shadow; positive and negative. Everything is transcending and viewers live the experience of a suspension in which jewelry is elevated to the artist’s narratives and may become a children’s fairytale. Rather than a mere utilitarian logic of jewelry circulation, the artist lends a poetic logic to these pieces and viewers no longer have to ask what they are for.

The Art of Marina Sheetikoff, This Way.

Marina Sheetikoff turns language into poetry. In her hands, jewelry shows us that true art is language submitted to poetic and conceptual crafting on several levels.

In her exhibition Por Esse Lado [This Way] held in São Paulo, in August 2017, at Galeria Alice Floriano, Sheetikoff showed a new set of works that constitute three series:  Sombrasdanoite (na floresta) [Night Shadows (in the Forest)], Frações da Natureza [Fractions of Nature] and Ponta do dia (Prumo) [Tip of the Day (Plummet)].

Visitors entering the exhibition are met by a somewhat disturbing proposition. Sheetikoff’s pieces activate a conceptual and poetic shift that leaves them disconcerted and operates a suspension of their experience of the utilitarian aspects of jewelry, not to mention its innate function as body adornment. She masterfully creates these situations in her work, drawing on strategies that have long been maturing in the course of her career. What you are looking for is what you will get, but this time she announces that it will be on the path she prompts us to take at a fork in the road: "this way", rather than the usual way. Her pieces are much more than jewels. Will visitors feel they have it woefully wrong? Or will they be blithely bewildered?

Chain Project
. Idealised and curated by Marina Sheetikoff, 2013
. This project brings together the work of 65 contemporary jewellers from 20 countries into one object; a chain.
. This large chain, uniting them all, composed of lengths of 15 cm smaller chains made by each participating member, celebrates the diversity in materials and methods of working; each chain becomes a metaphorical link in this new larger one. The resulting piece is 12 metres long and composed of a variety of raw materials, including concrete, paper, silicone, gold, silver and organic matter..

Statement

By creating pieces related to the body, I'm developing communication signs. My pieces are the result of ideas with narrative contents. Having nature as depart inspiration, I found in the metallic niobium a relation to the highlights of colors in nature as sunset, rainbow, insects and plants. Niobium metal improved presence in my studio in the lasts years and most of my pieces are made with or in combination with it.
By making jewelry, I found a field where I can manage the process of construction, lining up crafts techniques, digital design, industrial production, and experimentation to create my own language to reach into new territories of expression.
