[New Orchid Gallery] Nora Rochel


Nora Rochel

herbs or herbal medicine with its secretive, mythical but also
healing aspect is inspiring nora rochels work with the title
herbalism. she is looking deeper into the subject of plants, the
leitmotif of her work, fascinated by supersticions surrounding the
traditional folk medicine, with its roots at the very beginning of
human history or even before. The work is relating to the past and
the future with use of futuristic forms casted in aluminium and the
conciousness that there are still undiscoverd plants which may be
holding new cures for illnesses. It is exploring the world of
flowers and plants, the miracle of life with its cycle of growth,
bloom and decay.

Inspired by the wordplay of the German word “querbeet”, meaning
unsystematic, mix and match as well as referencing flower beds, Nora
Rochel explores the world of flowers and organic growth as visual
form?giving and expressiveness in both jewellery and everyday
objects. While flowers generally are considered a bit old fashioned
and sentimental typically viewed as the embodiment of the flat and
naive ? she was inspired by the full spectrum of their complexity
and variegation. Wearing Nora Rochel’s rings turns one’s hands into
small landscapes and gardens. Many of the rings are fanciful, but
often the source of inspiration is a real flower. Characteristic
features are hidden details like small flowers on the inside or the
use of different metals in one piece. They catch the instant of a
flower’s pure vitality while avoiding kitsch.
