Art Nouveau jewellery & René Lalique

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hiljuti rääkisin ühe tuttavaga, kes esitas mulle küsimuse millist ülikoolist saati polnud kuulnud, selleks oli mis kunstivoolud ja kunstnikud on minu lemmikud? Hullult keeruline on nüüd sellele vastata, olles kuidagi igapäeva rutiinis niivõrd tänases päevas sees ja mäletades peamiselt emotsioone mida teatud kunst ja tööd tekitasid, kuid mitte päris nimesid endid. Aga nagu enamusele graafilistele disaineritele meeldis mulle enim juugend ja pop kunst, neis mõlemis on sümbolismi ja vektorjooni mis graafikuid väga võluvad. Kõigi eest muidugi ei räägi, aga kuidagi selline mälestus jäi.

Kuigi ma ei arva, et kõik uus on hästi unustatud vana, täitsa uut on ikka ka tore näha, kuid René Lalique töödest on niiniinii palju õppida. Vaadake kuidas on esile tõstetud magevee pärlid ja iga detailike on paigutatud mitte niisama blingimise eesmärgil, vaid ikka selleks, et toetada üldist pilti. Igastahes rännak aastasse 1885 oleks üks tore ettevõtmine.

Ja niivisi kunstivaimus kutsun kõiki EKA100 Karnevalile mis toimub juba täna, riietage ennast Lalique eheteks ja läki.

I recently had a conversation with a person who asked me a question I haven’t heard since my uni years, it went down like this – which art periods and artists are my favourites? And it’s quite hard to answer that really, as I remember the feeling I had when experiencing some sort of art, but I can’t put my finger on names. But as most of graphic designers, I guess most.. I loved and love art nouveau and pop art, the graphic lines and stories it tells are simply very appealing for a young designer. Of course I can’t speak for everybody, just me and some mates.

Altho I don’t think that all new is well forgotten old, I love when new is current and absolute, I can say that René Lalique work is clearly something that should make a comeback as we have so much to learn from it. Every detail is sensually put, look at those pearls – not just hanging there for an extra bling. Going to the year 1885 would sure be nice.

And in the vibes of art history, if you are in Tallinn, come to Art Academy100 carnival tonight, make yourself a Lalique costume and lets go.

    I don’t think the fifth jewel from the top, a triangular necklace, is by René Lalique. There are more and more fakes on the market, as well as ordinary jewels falsely signed Lalique.

      The imagery is from the original museum’s webpage so I hope it’s not fake :) but of course you never know. Thanks for commenting :)
