BROOCH (with story) - electroforming fabric mesh with LOS patina

EN - CRO

BROOCH (with story) - electroforming fabric mesh with LOS patina

In the past, something bad happened with my cervical spine, one reason is big mistake of a doctor and another reason is occupational disease due to long-term position of the body in a non-physiologic position of the body in the time when I was work as textile artist. The consequences are lifelong, pain constantly, I work very hard in pain all the time. I constantly research techniques that are not physically demanding, this is why my creativity is so diverse. I have just discovered the electroformnig of jewelry as a technique. I hope that I will be able to work with less pain - my joy is endless :)

BROŠ (sa pričom) - elektrooblikovana mreža od tkanine s LOS patinom

U prošlosti se dogodilo nešto loše s mojom vratnom kralježnicom, jedan od razloga je velika pogreška liječnika, a drugi razlog je profesionalna bolest zbog dugotrajnog položaja tijela u nefiziološkom položaju tijela u vrijeme kada sam radila kao tekstilna umjetnica. Posljedice su doživotno bolno stanje, cijelo vrijeme radim u bolovima koji ne prestaju. Stalno istražujem tehnike koje nisu fizički zahtjevne, zato je moja kreativnost tako raznovrsna. Upravo sam otkrila elektro oblikovanje nakita kao tehniku. Nadam se da ću moći raditi s manje boli - moja radost je beskrajna :)


This is how process of electroforming jewelry looks like, one step...cup of coffee is on secure distance on the shelf, far away from all chemistry :)

Ovako izgleda proces elektroformiranja nakita, jedan korak...šalica kave je na sigurnoj udaljenosti na polici daleko od kemikalija :)

ENAMELED COPPER RINGS


It is interesting to show this experience with 4 enameled copper rings, on the bottom is first what I make long time before as custom order ring and now I'm trying to do the same. All have same shape, I used the same colors, but result is different. Structures, shadows and colors depends about temperature how close is torch to ring, what is temperature of flame, how thick is the coat of color and on the end -  time. How long I keep torch on ring and on what distance, it is about seconds. All that elements is not possible to repeat when I make enamel with torch on vertical surface as ring. Copper also has reaction with colors, change it, depends how thick is coat of colors. Although on the beginning I had intention to make same ring like first but now I like the unpredictability. I love dynamics on all surface. There is something mystic in unique shadows and  structures.

skupna izložba članova ULUPUH-a "Materijal i forma – tekstil na novim granicama"

CRO - EN

VEČERAS!!! Velika radost, skupna izložba članova ULUPUH-a 
"Materijal i forma – tekstil na novim granicama". Kustos izložbe: Nikola Albaneže.

Izlažem skulpturalnu kompoziciju od tri dijela "O snovima i maštanjima"
75×100×40 cm, eksperimentalna tehnika: papir, cement, brašno, zrnca iz filtera za vodu, konci, perje, boje, resin

Gradski muzej Vukovar

Dvorac Eltz, Galerija Oranžerija, Županijska 2, Vukovar
4.10. – 24.10.2016.
Otvorenje u utorak, 4. listopada u 18 sati

KONCEPT: O snovima i maštanjima
Kompozicija od 3 jastuka oblikovanih kao gljive su moj ekološki stav prema životu i iskorištavanju otpada za stvaranje arta. Za ovu izložbu radove prijavljujem u kategoriji mimikrije. Površina jastuka od kaširanog papira ima taktilnost crne lakirane kože u prva dva rada, a papirna pulpa mješana sa cementom i zrncima iz filtera za vodu su stvorili taktilnost zelene brušene kože u trećem radu. Stablo gljive je u kombiniranoj tehnici gdje vizualnost nose gusto omotani tanki konci i višeslojni nanosi Drvofix ljepila. Višeslojnim premazivanjem raznih boja stvoren je dojam organske taktilnosti. Jastuci su šuplje forme koji su za izložbu punjeni perjem. S empatijom se odnosim prema perju zbog kojeg su koke doživjele boli, ali to se dogodilo u prošlosti i slavonskom tradicijskom životu koji ne nastavljam. Šupljina jastuka u privatnom prostoru služi kao kutija za odlaganje sitnih predmeta. Vizualno tri jastuka oblikovani kao gljive su multifunkcionalno oblikovani kao skulpture i kao kutije za odlaganje sitnih predmeta.
Snovi i maštanja u nazivu nisu obojani već neutralno sivi i fleksibilni svim raspoloženjima. Iako je crna dominantna, bijelo-žuto-zeleno mješanjem daje nijanse sive. Snovi i maštanja ostaju tajanstveni, osobni i nerazotkriveni.

TONIGHT!!! Great joy, group exhibition of members ULUPUH
"The material and form - textiles to new frontiers", Curator: Nicholas Albaneže.
My art work is sculptural composition of the three-part "About dreams and fantasies"
75 × 100 × 40 cm, experimental techniques: paper, cement, flour, grains of water filters, thread, feathers, paint, resin
Vukovar Municipal Museum
Eltz Castle, Gallery Oranžerija, County 2, Vukovar
4.10. - 24.10.2016.
Opening on 4 October in 18 hours
CONCEPT: About dreams and fantasies
The composition of 3 pillows shaped like mushrooms are environmentally my attitude towards life and the exploitation of waste to create art. For this exhibition works are submitted in the category of mimicry. Surface of the pillows made of paper has a tactile of black leather in the first two work, a paper pulp mixed with cement and beads of water filters are created tactility green suede leather in the third work. The tree mushrooms in a combined technique where visuals carry densely wrapped in thin threads and multilayer coatings DRVOFIX glue. Multilayer coating of various colors created the impression of organic tactility. Pillows are hollow forms for exhibition filled with feather. With empathy treat the feathers that made chicken experienced pain, but it has happened in the past and Slavonian traditional life that I does not continue. The hollow pillow in the private area serves as a box to store small items. Visually three pillows shaped like mushrooms are multifunctional designed as sculpture and as a box for storing small items.

Dreams and fantasies in the title are not painted but neutral gray and flexible for all moods. Although the dominant black, white, yellow and green mixing gives shades of gray. Dreams and fantasies are mysterious, personal and unexposed.

MEN BAND RINGS

They have powerful look with details, texture and patina. Silver is main metal combined with copper and brass. My favorite is raw diamond, but I use and other stones like lapis lazuli, many others will be used. Techniques are different. I love doing combination of different techniques and make with them organic look.
