HANDSHAKE 4

 

 

Volker Atrops

I like the miniature and small scale. It is the dimension of ball or a hand, a human one-to-one size. It is not like big sculpture for large public pieces or open space. When I was 16, my friends and I started to make earrings and bangles, piercing each other’s ears, and so on. The style was something in between punk and glam, my first series. I cut rosaries in pieces and attached them to earrings and necklaces. Two years later, I learned the profession—gold granulation, stone setting, casting, enamel, all that classical stuff. Some years later at the Art Academie, I was able to create common art jewelry styles, but my interest goes one hand to art and on the other to decoration and jewelry. I like to separate these fields, but maybe in my drawings both can come together.
