Naina.co Online Brand Building, Photography and Art by Naina Redhu The “NUANCE” Wearable Art Series of Brooches Made From Hand-Cut Paint


BACKGROUND AND DEVELOPMENT

Could I, perhaps, make brooches that looked more like conventional jewellery? Not by using metal of course – I wanted to use paint. I wanted to cut paint & create mini-sculptures. Would that be possible? Feasible? What about the economics? How would these one-of-a-kind pieces be priced? Would my clients be excited with such work or would they think that I was re-inventing the wheel? What would a piece even look like?

Those are the things I was thinking of before I began experimenting with actually preparing the paint, figuring out who to cut the paint and assembling each tiny piece on my circular wooden canvases.

I had grand plans of making two sizes in each style. One 2 inches in diameter and one 2.5 inches in diameter. Possibly a series of 12 – 14 paintings and maybe even an 8 inch canvas.

I quickly abandoned those planes when I was making my second 2 inch piece and had already developed callouses on my fingers. I tried a couple of variations of the gold and copper pieces, using gold foil and copper foil and decided to make only seven pieces, all of them 2 inches in diameter.

Throughout the process of creating the pieces, I could not stop thinking about jewellery artisans and how they could possibly work with metal and precious stones at such a small scale. A newfound respect.

I focused on some of the metallic acrylic paints in my possession. I could have acquired more but I’m more eager to “get it out” than to plan and wait & launch when it is the right time. I wanted to focus on the gold and the silver but the copper and the blue and green looked enticing enough for me to wear on my own self, so why not.

Continually reminding myself to photograph some work-in-progress images, continues to be a task that I’d rather not have. I want to make the pieces and get them out onto my store PRONTO. Like Alexander Hamilton who was always writing like there was no tomorrow.
