Madeleine Goes Pop!
This jewellery is inspired by Pop Art - a movement that that emerged in Britain and America in the 1950s. Like rock and pop music, this was an art form for a new generation who after the rigours of war and rationing, were hungry for glamour, fun and a world of consumerist plenty. “Pop Art should be popular, transient, expendable, low-cost, mass-produced, young, witty, sexy, gimmicky, glamorous, and Big Business”, explained pioneering British pop artist Richard Hamilton in 1957. Challenging the traditions of fine art and the seriousness of abstract expressionism, Pop Art played with contemporary culture celebrating the banal and the kitsch and turning everything from comic books to soup cans into art. “I like things that are boring,” claimed Andy Warhol. “Art is what you can get away with.” A sense of humour also has its place in jewellery, and Madeleine Goes Pop collection is jewellery to make you smile.
