    Centaurea

    Necklace. Thermoformed polyethylene (PE), oxidized sterling silver

    24" long x 3.3" wide

    Collier from the Tooi, Festive Adornment series.
    "The collier Centaurea, which I made for Mobilia Gallery consists of about 140 pressed Polyethylene (PE) forms. Each form is made separately: colored PE-granules and threads are arranged in a kind of mini-collage. By heating and pressing the collage, the loose elements merge into one piece to create very light and flexible forms. I do not use templates: the contour and pattern of these forms are created by the impact of pressure. After completing the forms they are strung together on a silver chain. The collier is voluminous and exuberant: I want to represent the fullness and lively dynamic of summer and for the first time I used the color gold in order to represent sunlight in this piece. To me, a necklace is a unity, a closed circle where each single part communicates with the next. It is a composition and I direct the outcome of the finished piece by joining individual parts."

Working with color and shape, Sarah Enoch fabricates unique neckpieces that are reminiscent of Matisse’s cut-outs. Enoch has established her own unique process for creating works that are both voluminous and very wearable.

Statement

In my work I am inspired by natural botanicals and landscapes and I am interested in representations of the four seasons. During the last fifteen years I developed a unique technique using thermoplastics such as PE (Polyethylene) and PMMA (Acrylic). This technique is the basis for my research into form, colour and structure.

The collier collection “tooien” (festive adornment) which I made for Mobilia Gallery consists of pressed Polyethylene (PE)-forms. Each form is made separately: coloured PE-granules and threads are arranged in a kind of mini-collage. By heating and pressing the collage, the loose elements merge into one piece to create very light and flexible forms. I do not use templates: the contour and pattern of these forms are created by the impact of pressure.

After completing the forms they are strung together on a silver chain. Each collier consists of about 170 elements. The colliers are voluminous and exuberant: I want to represent the fullness and lively dynamic of summer with the collier Helianthus, or in the case of Mirabilis Jalapa, a summer night.

To me a necklace is a unity, a closed circle where each single part communicates with the next. It is a composition and I direct the outcome of the finished piece by joining individual parts.
