ANNELISSE PFEIFER

JOURNEY FRAGMENTS 2012 | 2013

For Annelisse jewellery is a form of dialogue, a medium to connect with others, a language with no barriers for self-expression.

Ever since childhood Annelisse has been encouraged to draw and drawing has become an essential part of her work; it is the departing point where she frees her imagination. Her inspiration arises from her travelling journeys, the different urban and natural landscapes of each particular place, the memories, the streets, the various patterns and textures. All these elements inform her work.To document every journey she takes photographs of everything that catches her eye: window railings, old building ceilings or details on wooden doors.

Metal is the leading material; with it, the artist creates conspicuous sculptural structures that are meticulously combined with coloured plaster and 'found objects' which she collects. There is something extremely fascinating about old kitchen utensils, and the variety of packaging found in the places she visits. In each construction subtle signs can be seen of the artist's own symbolism and language through which she wishes to communicate with her audience.

Subliminally nostalgic, Annelisse's pieces are a collage of all the places she has explored in her journeys. The pieces are bold, suggestive, abstract in form, with spatial qualities and large in scale; they are a journey on their own that has to be traversed by each viewers' eyes to discover the different compositions. For their manifestation there is no beginning or end as there is no end to Annelisse's journeys.
