Carolina Gimeno

I make jewellery as architecture, nature invented patchwork mended, crystallized drawings, poems, abstracts landscapes in mist , maps of absence, metaphors of the body. It is a constant evolution of a internal process of perceptions and thoughts about places and human relations as fragments parts which can be re-build  once and another time,   appearing absence places  into the essence of my work.
Drawing without drawing, sewing without sewing, developing a language from a insistence on creating a family of forms through a process that was generated from the use of "pattern" as a metaphor of the body away discovering a new nature of forms  ... My work make me up imaginations in space and also complex blurred drawn in the dwelling place of my memory.
