Christina Darras — Silver Poems/ Dont forgret to remember Necklace
Silver poems are one-of-a-kind necklaces made with perspex discs, designed and cut at the studio, and organic forms of silver slabs with a little poetic phrase hand engraved on them. The words represent automatic thoughts as a slogan, with a sense of humour and lightness.
Christina Darras is an interdisciplanary artist besed in Melbourne Naarm. Through her practice, she explores the sentimental bond with jewellery, seeing it as part of one's life, keeping moments alive, and carrying a symbolic meaning. She employs colour as a building block, and she believes in its emotional solid value.
Darras holds a Masters of Contemporary Art at the Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne Postgraduate Diploma in Printmaking at Central St Martins College of Art and Design, London, UK Bachelor of Arts in Painting and Drawing at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, France.
