My "Good Luck " necklace is the first piece I made and is still my favorite.
When I wear it - on the street, grocery store , at the dentist, anywhere - everybody says - Good Luck back to me.
Think positive. Pretty word opens the iron door.
Hieronymus Bosch's art with its profound irony and inventiveness is an internalized part of Jelena's imagination. Enlightenment gone sour, scientific observation of nature overloaded with details that push towards the grotesque - Bosch extracted fantastic from the very density of realistic observation of life, nature, and human character.
Heaven, hell, and everything in between on his paintings and drawings are made up of quotidian objects that were twisted and deformed by invention, irony, and poetic imagination, their original purpose forgotten. This vision of the world is perverse and whimsical, yet so very humane in its irreverence, awe at the world, and humor.
