It is with great pleasure that I present work by Alejandra Solar. Her work which you see here was selected for SCHMUCK 2011. Apparently it is the first time for a Mexican jeweller to be part of this exhibition – Congratulations.
She writes about her work: Throughout my creative process I continually gather images from the mundane. I select some of these characters, landscapes, and objects to become part of a different story in an imaginary world. By removing these elements from their original context, altering and playing with them, I find surprising, and unexpected connections between them and their new environment, the stories start over, the ordinary and familiar become uncanny and strange. Themes of death, religion, fantasy and fiction emerge, and become great sources of inspiration.
