Lethal beautifully – Art Jewellery by Märta Mattsson
Swedish jewellery artist Märta Mattsson (b. 1982) sees beauty in what others might find strange or even unpleasant. She has transformed the pull towards what can at first be seen as appalling into an artistic motivation - to not want to look, while not being able to look away. The jewellery are part of their own world, where sparkling rocks, metals and materials from nature meet beetles, insects, and taxidermied animals. Odd and dead objects gets brought into new life through her work.
