Collection: Carol K Gwizdak : Fine Art Jewellery : Nantgaredig

Carol Gwizdak’s practice focuses on ecological issues that draw on the visual and conceptual language of the natural world and in so doing it entreats us to reinstate nature in its purist form, as the most precious of all commodities.

Her work centres around the notion of ‘Precious’ in a traditional context, subverting this by replacing the expected gemstones with the natural treasures that she finds. Often wilfully transient; her use of ephemeral plant matter contradicts the notion of jewellery as ‘precious and permanent’ and refers preoccupations with value back to the environment.

References are made to a plethora of concerns. The alarming rate of habitat and biodiversity loss; genetically modified technology and the decline of outdoor natural play and by default our childrens awareness of nature’s wonders. It implores us to question what we value. Do we care what we have lost, if, in our interior digital world, we are ignorance of its existence? In the piece EX1 is it enough to create imaginary hybrids from the bits we save and remember? The creature looks forlorn, the last of its kind, a floral construct, a definitive depiction and trophy of our wilful destruction of our planet.
