about the work

Turning around the notion of value, my work is questioning its underlying foundation. I’m looking at symbols, what they represent and their subjective value depending on the materials they are made of. Trained as a jeweller at Central Saint Martins, I take jewellery as a medium to lead curiosity.

CRIMETHOUGHTS
This is a psychological and symbolic travel through the mind
Exploring how far ideas and obsessions can go.
We all have a criminal mind
Intrusive thoughts
The difference stands in the action we decide to take
Whether we act on it on, or whether we wait and let them go.
Why some act on it and some don’t?
This series of pieces is exploring mental compulsions.
(as well as serving a self-cathartic purpose to extract the surplus of criminal thoughts)
