Artist Statement: Tulipanes is a contemporary jewelry collection that explores the theme of fatigue towards masculinity. The designs are inspired by the ways in which masculinity is embodied and performed, which are then subverted and made playful through ridicule.
By making light of the discomforts and restrictions of traditional masculinity, the collection aims to create new conversation around gender and identity. The designs are intentionally frivolous and everyday, using familiar body parts like the anus, mouth, and penis in unexpected ways to challenge conventional norms.
Overall, Tulipanes invites us to rethink our assumptions and explore the body in unexpected ways.
