During winter 2013 in Paris, at a huge retrospective of Dalí’s work in the Pompidou Center, I was able to re-discover him in all it’s dimension. I’ve got inspired to create a drawing that later on I converted it into a silk scarf: «el Boc de París».

This past summer I went to the Dalí Theater – Museum in Figueres, there I was able to see it with other eyes. The shapes of the museum convey pain and joy through charming and fun details. Like the jewels Dalí designed

One of my favorite, «Pomegranate Heart», takes me to my childhood, in the orchard of my parents’ house, where they had a pomegranate. Grabbing them mature, broke open by birds or the sun’s heat, with breaches that revealed the reddish granulated fruit.

Dalí with this design knows how to convey, translate and connect an underlying message in the collective unconscious.

I couldn’t stand the temptation to paint, or rather, get carried away by the seduction of the jewelry and express the feelings that caused me. I wanted to convey the Dalí’s jewels on silk scarves so creatively.

Using different techniques: first, directly, with the pen on the paper and applying color with watercolors. Continuing with photography, along with a digital finishing process on the computer and finally stamping it on silks.

A pomegranate to the heart – Silk foulard “Pomegranate Heart”

The pomegranate heart suggests and attracts towards its intense red ruby grains.  On the metal base of the membrane that protects them, converted into wrinkled silver of a rough skin, of a metallic gold containing them.

I imagined a scarf with a print in which the metal and gold colors dominate. On which a glimpse of red grains were seen… And sometimes, forming black holes that contrasted the red. The result is a golden scarf of strong contrasts with red and black spots. A strong metallic presence.

“Honeycomb Heart” with a tear included

Another heart that beats strongly, the Honeycomb Heart. If in the Pomegranate Heart the red blood color arises within the rubies. In this one, the red envelops the heart from the outside and from within comes a hexagonal lattice, where the diamonds come on different sizes and colors.

What ability to seduce has Dalí! In his artistic background watches and eyes are always present. In The Eye of Time, the metaphor is categorical. The pupil of the eye is a clock running, you look and you can see the time on it. Is it not in the sight that the linear time of our lives escape? The pupil is bordered by diamonds flanges and a bright red tear. Soft watches, soft eyes.
