- Monologue. Parellel worlds of Mari Ishikawa, curated by Maria Cristina Bergesio.
The work of Mari Ishikawa expresses a deep fascination with the natural world. With a look full of charm, the artist observes nature and manages to infuse the magic in her photographs and her jewellery, as Moon Light Shadow, In The Shadow Of A Tree, Clouds.
The natural spectacle is experienced in its most intimate and small ravines, in the form of branches, the tangle of a shoot, the emergence of a delicate inflorescence. In her works throughout the poem takes the form of a feeling of nature as a living entity, palpitating, perpetual, and in her cycle of birth, growth, development.
- PREZIOSA YOUNG 2011
PY is a international competition/exhibition dedicated to young designers chosen for their individual research and the originality of their creations. This project was conceived and coordinated by Gi√≤ Carbone, Director of "Le Arti Orafe‚ÄĚ, since 1985 Contemporary Jewellery School in Florence.
