Here some images from my newest exhibition, open in Berlin, Germany. The exhibition includes decorations and hand-crafted jewellery inspired by the Cucuteni culture (fourth millennium B.C.).
I am a fan of art forms uncovered through archaeological explorations in the city of Cucuteni, in north-eastern Romania.
The series of artifacts below attempts to re-create some of the artistic motifs apparent in the Cucuteni culture: the spiral, symbol of life, geometric and archaic patterns. The material of choice is ceramics, in keeping with the majority of objects found at Cucuteni; on this foundation I have layered a guilded paint coat.
For me, this exhibition this was an opportunity to reflect on the ability of art to regenerate itself and to speak to us across time and space in its solitary and enigmatic voice.
