Getting Back To Origins

It’s an almost nonconformist approach to the primitive, getting back to raw materials like food and processing them as little as possible. Distressed knitted work become fish nets, looking humble and basic and responding as a signal of primitive (looking) handcrafts.

Erupted volcanos and black lava serve as an inspiration reminding prior times, when live was a little rougher. More simple. And less contaminated. It’s this burnt look that comes across as mystique and basic as seen on the ceramic pieces above and lava plates below.

And of course, when talking nature and rather primitive forms of living, there is always a tribal approach, often alienated and serving a visual purpose rather than wanting to offer an anthropological study. Wilder Mann by Charles Fréger (pic top left) is an excellent project has inspired many disciplines with attempting a very personal take on the hunter-gatherer-farmer evolution, and eventually becoming urban.

Well, Archaic Simplicity is all about the opposite progression getting back to origins. It symbolizes the relationship between mankind and nature, and recalls ancestor habits and routines.
