Art Description

Painting: Woodcut, Paint, jewellery, brooch and silver on Wood.

Things given to us; things intimate to us; things dear to us: these things are priceless to us and
an integral part of the essence of home.
The motif of this work is the insertion of jewellery into a picture: a jewellery box. What is at
first glance a simple still life of everyday objects becomes a symphony of detail and tells the
story of the wear and tear suffered by objects that mean something significant to us: they
become both important and DEAR to us.
The jewellery itself is a symbolic pile of classical jewellery: rings, necklaces, pendants,
diamonds and pearls; a normal woman's jewellery box.
The painting and the jewellery are connected by spatial perspective. The jewellery thus has its
place in the picture, just like a person has their personal space where they rest, read, love.In the jewelery box is a celebration of small everyday pleasures, a celebration of life and its spiritual
essence: not just empty pleasure, but the genius loci of the home.
