Drawing, Sculpture, Craft Art: "Temple Earrings" by V. Varga

Comments about Temple Earrings:

Revised Review: Please use this one:
8/9/17

I certainly understand why drawing comes easily to Victoria Varga (She mentions this in her Artist's Statement) since I can visualize her abstract drawing --- both line (straight and curved black lines) and color --- as the iconography of a 2-dimensional work. In addition to temples, which is how Varga sees them, these tiny sculptures remind me of alien beings with red heads from which a single piece of hair (the vertical section of the earring wire), sprouts, and red arms shaped like the heads, emerge, directly from an oversized body.

The horizontal top and bottom edges of the 3-dimensional (figurative) sculptures, as well as the horizontal parallel black lines on 1 of their side surfaces, serve to stabilize and ground them. The diagonal outline of the earrings contrasts with the stationary horizontals by suggesting movement, as diagonal lines always do. In this case the diagonal is formed by the increase in width as the earrings descend towards their base.

These earrings are very much about movement and Varga suggests it in other ways as well. She creates 3-dimensional movement via a slender vertical slice cut into the center of each earring. The repetitive curving circular black lines surrounding red circles echo the movement of wheels; these black lines and red circles constitute the primary design on the red, black and white 2-dimensional surface of the earrings. Thus, Varga uses the 2-dimensional surfaces of her 3-dimensional moving earring sculptures to create original drawings that also suggest movement. And the earrings themselves move with the wearer.

Finally, a 2" length, perfect for most wearers; a trio of great colors; and lightweight! Just 3 more features that make these earrings 5-star works of art. ~~ HARP
