Melanie Grant Self, 2021 Bronze, dark grey oxidised silver and white sapphires cuff 6 cm height; 6.5 cm diameter Edition of 8 Signed   “Look into a mirror and the soul stares back. Before glass there was water because nature has always provided a physical prompt for self-reflection if we take the time to pause and consider. The pandemic gave me an opportunity to go inward, to be still and quiet without distraction for an extended period of self-discovery. When I surfaced, I felt the urge to make something from metal with an almost medieval beauty, an ancient artefact in a modern world that celebrated the fact I had survived. My cuff is called ‘Self’ and is crafted from silver with gold plated studs and white diamond tips. It represents the power of self-reflection and the courage to forge a new life.” – Melanie Grant

In her Rongorongo paintings, Pistone creates symbols in a deliberate attempt to reach an ideal alphabet, which addresses our shared, collective human unconscious. A place which she believes has been shaped by the experiences of our ancestors. ‘This project was dedicated to Alan Watts, an English philosopher born in (1915 – 1973). His major contribution was given as a popularizer in the West of Eastern philosophies (Zen). In one of his many monologues, there is the one on: what is love, which I used to engrave the plates (obviously it is fragmented into the various jewels), but the intention is that the message they carry is that. I am attaching the text:’ -Pistone (translated from Italian) Well now really when we go back into falling in love. And say, it′s crazy. Falling. You see? We don’t say “rising into love.” There is in it the idea of the fall. And it goes back, as a matter of fact, to extremely fundamental things. That there is […]
