Lucy Sarneel - Hang on to a jewel


Lucy Sarneels smyckehantverk kan beskrivas som väl utvalda variationer av figurer och abstrakta delar. Spännande element, naturliga material, syntetiska material och textilier, ofta i kombination med zink.

Her distinctive use of fabricated zinc is inspired by the materials omnipresence in the objects and architecture of her native Netherlands. The material represents the blue-grey sky and sea, and the color of the subconscious. Zinc is the reassuring, domestic world of rain pipes, buckets, and washtubs; towers and dormer windows, the architectural jewels of old European cities; and the protective quality of steel preventing rust. Creating fields of tension in form, idea, and material, she uses familiar symbols for love, protection, and handcrafts, as well as forms relating to forgotten traditions, proverbs, popular motifs, and themes from folklore.

For some time her work has developed towards the idea of a jewel as a power-object and patron, trying to catch a kind of cultivated primitivism. This provides a counterweight to the high-tech, efficient, and mass-oriented world in which cultures are disappearing as a result of commercialization and globalization. The visual language of her jewelry is associative, often sculptural, and encourages the free experience of thoughts and feelings.
Although her work has greatly developed over the years, this need to communicate with and through jewellery is a constant factor.

Sarneels inspiration for a piece of jewellery is usually an experience, with her purpose not being to create a literal representation of that story but to connect with others: A piece of jewellery is like a soulmate; someone who communicates without words. The same goes for my jewellery and the visual language I employ.

In her lecture she will talk about important aspects in her work, non- chronological through time.
