LIANA PATTIHIS
...
07831265943
'The processes Liana uses in making her jewellery are ones of building and burying...The natural quality of the surface gives a feel of a much earlier age, yet buried

under the enamel are anonymous, potentially unattractive, silver chains of this age of mass production. The point of delight is not only that unique, colourful and exciting pieces of

jewellery are created, but that the rules of enamelling have been broken and rewritten so successfully.'

Caroline Broadhead August 2010

Αλυσοδεμένο-Alysodeméno meaning ‘Chained’ is my first solo jewellery exhibition.
'The title ‘Alysodeméno’ is used here not only in a literal sense, since my work involves enamel which is ‘chain bound’ but more meaningfully, metaphorically; as the future is inexorably linked to the past and the traditional is tied to the contemporary, so is the strong undivided link between what represents me as a person and my Greek-Cypriot heritage which is expressed through my art'.
Preview on Thursday 11 November, 6pm-8pm.
Opening hours: Friday and Monday, 11am-7pm;
Saturday and Sunday, 1pm-7pm.
Supported by the Hellenic Centre.

Biography

I was born in Cyprus and have been living in London since 1980. Initially trained as an Interior Designer, I attended Jewellery Design at Middlesex University. I graduated with First Class Honours in 2007, before establishing my own art-jewellery practice in North London.

Stretching the boundaries of what can be achieved with enamel as a medium, I have developed my own unique method of sifting and fusing it on a movable base. My work comprises mainly brooches and necklaces made out of silver and gold chain alone, or chain attached onto a copper mesh base which is then enameled. The appeal to me is that each piece is unique. My designs cannot be pre-conceived; each piece is allowed to create itself.

I have exhibited internationally:
At Electrum Gallery London (2007), at Galerie Marzee
Netherlands (2007), at Goldsmiths’ Fair London (2009), at
Contemporary Applied Arts London (2011), at SOFA (New York, Chicago, Santa Fe) and Art Palm Beach (2008-present) with Charon Kransen Arts New York. Liana has also exhibited in Italy, Cyprus and Israel. She was selected to take part in Joya Contemporary Jewellery exhibition in Barcelona for three consecutive years since 2009 and has been selected to return as a Guest Artist in 2012. In November 2010 Liana had her first solo exhibition in London titled ‘Alysodeméno’-'Chained' supported by the Hellenic Centre.

This exhibition is travelling to The Benaki Museum in Pireos, Athens Greece from April 25 - May 27 2012.
