Sugar-Encrusted Jewelry by Natalie Smith

Artist Statement

Her work explores the ideas of growth, transformation and disintegration. She finds inspiration in surrealist science fiction, which is rich in atmosphere and imagery. Many of the books describe apocalyptic landscapes and alternate worlds that are on the brink of geographical catastrophes. In these dramatic dreamscapes there are no utopias, emphasis is placed on mental explorations and evocative journeys of the isolated humans.

She creates her pieces by combining permanent and temporary materials such as textiles and sugar. She likes the pieces to have a constantly changing structure and once completed, begin their transient lives. Depending on how they are cared for they may dissolve in humid conditions, change colour or melt like an ice-lolly on a hot day revealing the materials underneath. The evolution of the work is something that interests her greatly and as part of its continuing cycle she offers re-crystallisation to the wearer.
