CHOICE
A PERSONAL SELECTION

16th July - 27th Sept 2009

THE PEOPLE'S CHOICE

Tim Copsey, Holm

I chose The Golden Bears by Marta Mattsson and Ginger Necklace by Sam Tho Duong because both have colour, which is scrumptious, striking and rich. Both have traditional even ancient elements. Both have recognisable components but because of their modification and treatment become heightened, sinister, funny and totemic. I love the blue too!

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…
