Christine’s conceptual series of jewelry entitled Rolls Series begins to look at street skating by establishing it’s core elements and their internal kinetic relationships- these are of surface, movement and material. These elements begin to coincide as her pieces bring the eye around the forms as they converge and wrap. Interesting is the fact the her abstractions are not to only be viewed, but they are meant to be worn on the body, crating a user experience.

Christine goes on to say:

Rolls Series

Through rolling, abstractions are created on various surfaces through movements, memories and shapes.

The idea of this collection is to communicate the relationship the body has with static objects when they are being used as a catalyst for movement. The visual contrast between the weightless body of the skater and the stagnant materials surrounding them is translated into wearable objects that represent the kinetic qualities of street skating.

This body of work is a result of a series of abstract formal studies into the visual relationship between a moving figure and static, decaying architectural lines, planes and volumes. This collection of jewelry celebrates this beautifully balanced relationship that is showcased through the art form of street skating.

Come see Christine’s show which goes live this Wednesday at The Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.
