MONICA WICKSTRÖM

The topic of my works is based on the feeling and thought a special material has to tell. Very often I am recycling different trash, but not only for the ecological reason. The concept is important as well as the change of the context of everyday thing. That is my fascination and inspiration.

I like to think and work on different levels of art, handicraft and design. Very often my pieces are not only a mix of different materials but also fields with a conceptual content. I express myself mostly in new ways. I think it due to the fact that I am curious to explore different items and material from the everyday life in new contexts.

I combine very often material from wasted things with silver or gold to give the trash a glory value in the sense to emphasize our natural resources, which we can’t afford to waste.

A piece of jewellery touching the body and meeting the soul affects the thought. That’s my goal in my work.
