Gallery: Four Gallery
Contact: Karin Roy Andersson
Artist: Hanna Liljenberg
Retail price: US$480

Hanna Liljenberg grew up surrounded by the harsh environments and salty seaside rocks on the Swedish west coast. The aesthetics of the landscape colors her work. Pale pink shapes made of paper contrast with black burned brass—almost like heather growing on dark granite. They are flower shapes growing on branches, or maybe they are decorated or even infected veins carrying blood.

To elaborate her register of symbols, Sophie Hanagarth (CH/FR) dissects the cultural heritage of our society, drawing inspiration from popular myths as much as from religious art. Questioning our habits, she shatters the lure of our material values, chiseling with a nimble and precise hand the poorest materials. With finesse and a sense of volume, she forges iron. Her reflections on the meaning of the adornment allow a joyful liberation from the tragic nature of the lightness of existence.

Her work addresses ideas of surface, acceptance, and transformation as it captures intimate moments where the biological and mechanical touch.

Like ancient treasures pulled from the bottom of the sea, Barry Clark’s jewels are rich and raw, revealing their ancient Grecian influences. Working masterfully with unpolished gems, gold, and silver, he makes gestural, symbolic pieces that feel powerful and unpretentious. “I was born in Surrey, England, in 1946,” says the artist, “but have lived in New Zealand on and off since the 80s and permanently since 1991. I have always painted and studied art informally. I am a self-taught painter and jewelry maker. I am influenced by the Minoan, Cycladic, and Celtic cultures, as well as the modern artists Brancusi, Picasso, Giacometti, and Marini.”
