MAUKE V Jewelry by Maureen Vorswijk

Maureen Vorswijk began her career in fashion, working in Amsterdam as a wardrobe stylist for theater shows, and several fashion projects. After designing her own lingerie and fashion collection her designs were also worn in music videos, photo shoots and fashion shows. After 8 years Maureen made a career switch and she choose for her first love, Jewelry.

While composing images for MAUKE V there was another mission which had to be accomplished as well. That was the moment a small lingerie collection was included and which she believes women would love to put their hands on. Maureen Vorswijk doesn’t follow any particular style, thoughts or rules but has created an own individual style. She draws from inner inspiration, from images of ancient times seeking their way through her mind into her hands, art, photography, old magazines, when looking at her family, her trips to Surinam and Nigeria, personal transformation and her obsession for beautiful things.

But the feeling she strives for is to create that piece of jewelry for her customers that makes them feel confident, feminine, strong the moment they put it on. Maureen launched her first collection Afrik & Silver in 2012 during LFW using materials such as sterling silver, 14 kt gold, a variety of handpicked gemstones from Africa and natural material asleather cords for her entirely handcrafted and hand-polished jewelries. Handmade headpieces and feather necklaces were included.  The foundation of MAUKE V Jewelry will always remain the same, the challenge to continue creating unique jewelry with a timeless appeal for women.

BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.

INTERVIEW: ELSA EGON

Interviews | September 21, 2020

"Art represents for me a 'ligne de vie'. I have been painting since my 15 years: since then, artistic practice has accompanied all my experiences as a girl, woman, mother. My only safety net in the most difficult situations, today represents the way to seek beauty in the objects and materials we use every day. I often work starting from a material that already carries a story in it, because it has been found, extracted and reused. It may perhaps be recognized by the people who had it in their hands. Somehow, it tells a collective story, piecing together, to establish bonds, but at the same time fixing my experiences." Read more
