Context Gallery, jewels and contemporary objects

Tomoko Umemoto

Sculpture transforms the space where it influences, it highlights it and it complements it, individualizes and projects in it the character of its inhabitants and at the same time its limitation. My work in jewel format or portable sculpture aims to surpass these spatial limits to place and continuously intervene in any space that the bearer occupies. My inspirations are found in the organic forms that mostly constitute the means to reach a double effect: harmony with the body and counterpoint to the geometry of human spaces.
