潘琳烨 首饰设计 本预
The instinct of an artist is to find the beauty in life and pass it to the audience in his own way.
I prefer to use found objects as my materials to make narrative jewelleries. I like to hide a long story behind the jewellery because it gives you a view of the hidden beauty. In the work I made about the love of my grandparents, I used their photos and the red rope as the found materials. In the meantime, I also express my feelings to the audience through jewellery, from the missing to my family to the anxiety about the worsening environmental pollution in my hometown. For example, in the work I did this year, I used plastic bags, which are collected from the seaside as the material to simulate the appearance of marine creatures being entangled by plastic. This jewellery design shows the severity of Marine pollution.
The visual effect is very important to me, because it usually gives the audience a shock in the first place. To make a good visual effect, I think continuous experiment is important. My experimentation is usually casual, so I always have to use my eyes for a long time to look for something that has special significance and plenty of room for development to me. I don't like deliberate methods, like chemical etching. I enjoy the process of discovering beauty.
