06 Dec Textile Jewelry for the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum
The artist María Muñoz presents her collection of textile jewelry made for the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid, where they can already be obtained in the museum shop as well as in their online shop.
These textile jewelery works are inspired by three paintings exhibited in the museum: Paul Klee’s “Rotating House”, Kandisnky’s “Picture with Three Spots, No. 196” and “Earth’s Rhythm” by American abstract painter Mark Tobey and consist of brooches and bracelets made from natural silk, painted jacaranda seeds and metal.
Paul Klee‘s painting represents the author’s particular vision of the cities and their buildings giving the impression of spinning around a central axis. The earthy tones predominate on a yellowish background.
In the very beginning of the last century Kandinsky had already reached full abstraction abandoning all figurative form and focusing only on the pursuit of emotions, as in this painting in which he uses different forms and a very wide palette of colors in his search for a mystical and spiritual meaning.
Mark Tobey created in the sixties some uniform and abstract pictorial spaces on a gray base punctuated by red, blue and yellow tones trying to create similar rhythms to those of the music, to which he was amateur, with what he wanted to represent his particular vision of the cosmos.
The pieces made by María Muñoz inspired by these three works have been made in a unique and personal way with threads of silk and wool. All of them have a magnet in the back for their support that also serves to avoid they ruin the garments on which they are placed. In the online store of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum you can see both, the jewels and the paintings that inspired them and you can also leave an opinion.
