Clockwise: a brooch made by Mayte Amezcua, using nickel silver, copper, pieces of tablecloth and a plastic rope to recreate adorned supermarket trolleys.
Mayte Amezcua, who also managed the first exhibition, takes the supermarket trolley as an international icon. However, she takes into consideration how it turns into a mobile store in Mexico, and that has a certain decoration that functions as disguise. “Each of these vehicles is transformed into an unexpected place the people go to and where they satisfy their daily needs.” Thus, Amezcua presented a brooch, a necklace and a ring that copies the trolley’s structure, adorned with pieces of tablecloth and plastic rope.

Contrast can be achieved in many ways. Using different materials, varying color values or hues, playing with surface treatments (smooth and textured, patterned and plain, etc). Contrast makes for a vibrant, stimulating visual presentation. Nicole Jacquard
