Hands And Heads… Jana Machatova

“Each moment which we live suddenly turns into history”.  (Jana Machatova)


Jana Machatova is a contemporary jewelry artist from Slovakia. I’ll be honest here: I don’t like all her work. Some of it is rather political, and much of it just doesn’t tickle my esthetic fancy. But, there are pieces in her gallery that really struck me, and when that happens I just have to post about it. It concerns a set of brooches… The photographs on the gold background made me think of byzantine icons a bit, and the strange setups with seemingly disembodied hands and heads make for a very mystical atmosphere. Also, they are eye-catching and beautiful; what more do you need?

About quantumphysica

My name is QuantumPhysica The Insane, but you can call me QP. I am insane, admitted to a mental hospital in Belgium, and waiting for a decent diagnosis at the moment. Once I was a physics student with goals in life and what more; now I'm simply the patient of Room 93. Ever wondered what life is like in the psychiatric ward? I'll tell you everything you ever wanted to know... I am... particularly twitchy of personality. But I also am genuinely interested in everything. There is nothing that doesn't interest me, really. Everything, from quantum computers to fashion and cars to traveling... I also give advice. On anything. No taboos whatsoever. And I make lists of things...
