KATACHI form + focus
"Creation is to turn an invisible “form” into a visible “form”.
The individuality of the work resides in that perspective.
Depending on the artist`s point of view, the shape created from the image will differ.
A work that has become a visible “form” has the potential to bring about the discovery of another perspective depending on the viewer.
Furthermore, by wearing the work of jewelry, it is possible to incorporate the perspective of another approach into the work.
The expression of jewelry is greatly influenced by the surrounding environment.
Please feel the presence of Japan through our work."
"Katachi" is a combination of "kata" (pattern) and "chi" (magical power) and means form, but the concept has complex meanings in the Japanese understanding of the term, revealing intricate relationships between form, function, and meaning.
Snow is falling here, earlier than usual. The white blankets the dark. The title of Karin Roy Andersson's exhibition HUG A TREE can be interpreted in several ways; hugging a tree saves it and provides salvation to a lost soul but takes on an additional meaning in Swedish as it alludes to the word HUGGA, meaning cutting down.
"The forest provides recovery and perspective. Twigs, stones, cones, and the smell of pine needles. Heavy snow changes the forest's shapes, sound environment and light. Here, shy animals can be seen if one is quiet and observant, while the ones used to people simply give a quick look and continue with what they were doing.” - Karin Roy Andersson
The exhibition HUG A TREE is Karin Roy Andersson's first solo exhibition in Stockholm. Many know her from Four in Gothenburg and as an internationally established jewellery artist with exhibitions worldwide. For several years, Four and PLATINA have collaborated on both exhibitions and projects.
