Anna Rikkinen, 2018, Finland


Wearing jewellery is uncomfortable, but the façade is essential. The starting point for my signature work has been 17th and 18th century paintings. I’ve looked in to know portraits from Vermeer, Boucher and Rembrandt. I have the craving and quest for beauty. And yet for me jewellery has strong dualistic nature.
What if jewellery wears the wearer or wears her out?
