‘Deep’ series was influenced by the scientific illustrations of Ernst Heinrich Haeckel, who in the 19th century turned the attention of Western civilization to the world of the magnificent and tiny creatures of the seabed. Jewelry has the power to rejuvenate the human body, very much the same way that coral transforms the seabed. I wanted to create jewelry, which is alive; which invites the potential bearer to participate in the various forms it takes and to experience how these forms can be transformed from enclosed shapes, into dynamic structures in space. The shapes often resemble waves of coral polyps.
Based in the heart of the historical center of Athens, Popeye loves Olive Art Space is dedicated to promoting the Art of Contemporary Jewelry.
Our mission is to propose to both wider and specialized audiences, the most cutting edge jewelry, based on the evaluation of their craftsmanship, quality, concept, form and artistic value. We are the advocates of this inspiring field in Greece.
We create space for an open dialogue and a meeting place for local and international artists, designers and creative minds. We present the work of emerging and established artists through solo, group exhibitions, selected projects and we publish our own catalogs.
We wish to embrace the unique, controversial, sentimental, progressive, political and sometimes extreme work of the jewelry field!
