Full Description
Mari Ishikawa sees a parallel world off the beaten track of everyday living that she wants to make visible with her art. Such counter-worlds are discovered in photographs with long exposures, which are taken up in art jewellery. Together these pairings result in an overall picture that is almost mystical. Silver casts taken from nature are reborn as jewellery in combination with diamonds, pieces of charcoal, or paper. Thus Mari Ishikawa interrupts for a brief moment the flow of transience; a precious object is created that has been wrenched from the cycle of life and death to stand for itself and for the moment. Contents: Parallel with Nature. The Beauty of Jewellery (Monika Fahn), Mr White Hagi (Otto Künzli), Moonlight Shadow (Jorunn Veiteberg), Light as a Cloud. Deep as Light and Shade (Gabriella Zaharias-Doff), Artist's Biography.
