I discover how strong i am under my skin.jpg

[C17: from Latin abruptio]

 

Trying to find the answers about why the last time I am often overcome with waves of different emotions.

I decided to make work as a kind of personal emotional archive to read and understand this feeling in a different way.

These moments are very unpredictable and very often take me along very unexpected paths that can go from the desperation to the calmness, from the nostalgia to the happiness 

I have more and more the feeling I need to express something and using materials, shapes, textures, colours, emotions, feelings as tools try to make individual small stories

and even when this confrontation is not easy I don’t want to lost the ability to be comprehensible to any sensitive people.

I often worry that people is indifferent to this kind of expressions in art and refuse to experience purely emotional response to purely visual, static artistically expressions in this case my jewellery pieces.

Doing this personal archive, I want to create images that I think will trigger the people with their feelings, images of personal experiences, memories of pleasure of maybe memories of pain.

And I enjoy of my work adding visual elements that confirm messages of create confrontations.

I like to do and show the process of the work and the making, some pieces looks like not finished, the Intime moments in the studio that can show that making this kind of work can be very hard and mentally draining. 

 

Realizing this made me feel a little more relaxed about wasting my life creating jewellery pieces. Like so many things in life, it is more about the journey than the destination and, it seems that people can find and appreciate these struggles and emotions in the finished pieces.

I want to abrupt the general feeling and discover new messages on it, I want to abrupt the materials and create my personal way of communicate, I want to abrupt my emotions and let me go to a new dimension of feelings.
