CHOICE
A PERSONAL SELECTION

16th July - 27th Sept 2009

THE PEOPLE'S CHOICE

Vicky Thomos, Knaresborough

I chose Marta Mattsson because I would not choose something like this as a rule, but I was drawn to Marta’s work. I like the unusualness, the cute but ugly element.

MARTA MATTSSON

Somebody once told me,”You make jewellery for children, not for adults”. And when I was a student in Tokyo the Japanese students in my class came up with a new word to describe my work. The word was KimoKawaii and it’s a combination of two words kawaii (cute) and kimoi (disgusting).

I make jewellery for adults but with a touch of inspiration from my childhood. When I was a child I played with stuffed animals, slugs and other living animals. I have always been drawn to both biology and art and in my work I am trying to combine my interests. Nature is a great source of inspiration but so is Pokemon…
