Elisabetta Duprè

A formal lexicon, with few essential elements, a rigorous execution and limited chromaticism: all elements that form the language from which the jewellery takes shape.

The study of music and contemporary dance guide Duprè in the attention to shapes, rhythmic and spatial connotations of changes in materials.

Her works are characterized by the meticulous elaboration of detail, by repeated use of forms with minor variations.

Acting by subtraction, the inspirational idea takes on an abstract form and becomes a dominant theme, so as to compose the piece through variation and aggregation operations.

She works mainly on colour contrasts, obtained with the use of fine or high carat gold, with silver, both white and oxidized.

The contrasts are sometimes extreme, such as that between pure gold and oxidized silver, or at times created by slight variations in colour tone.

The shapes used, whether geometrical or soft and free, rigorous and clean, even though, in her extreme rigor, we can perceive “human imperfection,” which she seeks and underlines.

Her latest works are inaccurate constructions and not predefined three-dimensional geometry. The work is constructed in relation to space that is a structural part of it. It is a free construction that interacts with stasis and achieves a constant minimum re-adaptation within the surrounding space.

Space contributes to the formation of the jewellery: it not only acts as host, but also acts as a structuring and structural material.
