Forgotten spirituality

Mihaela Pascu in conversation with Gaspard Hex.

V. There are always certain situations or people who need to put everything into categories even when one cannot be placed into a specific one. Where do you see the jewelry pieces you create into the artistic field nowadays?
Well, I have no idea, and honestly, I don’t really care. Some may say it’s dark, but it’s not really my point of view, some may say it’s shamanic, I may agree more with those. But on the path I’m walking on, I don’t think technical words and classifications are so important. Emotions can rarely be well described with words.

VI. The pieces presented at Galerie BSL have a complexity and beauty that makes us want to understand what was behind the entire series. How would you portray the inspiration and the process of creation for these ones in particular?
For these pieces, I think the general idea was to introduce ancient nature spiritualities such as amazonian shamanism and celtic druidism into our nowadays world. I also wanted to portray my vision of Atlantis, no matter if mythical or historical. I used a lot of rough stones, such as black tourmaline for it’s energy, or opal because of its polychromia that may refer to the feathers used in Amazonia and that have something really magical I couldn’t explain with words. Some of them are also conceived as micro-universes to tell about the relations between microcosm and macrocosm and show that everything from the smallest to the biggest is connected.
