MA work

…and what if I were offering you a moment of delicious confusion? If you would accept one tiny minute to forget everything around you and to enjoy the startling world in front of you?

The small wire-world of jewels evokes straightforward ideas, but when looking closer, you will realise that they are the opposite of what they seem to be. They may look fragile, yet they are strong; they look deformable, yet they keep their shape; they may look like drawings, but they are three-dimensional.

This work is not just offering a glimpse of where I have got to. It shows more where I wish to start from on this journey full of wonders, and invite you to share with me the feelings of wonder and delicious confusion.
