A recent graduate of the Royal College of Art, Sandhu creates experimental work that makes use of both precious and non-precious materials, taken into the context of jewels and excess. As a designer and artist, he is intrigued and captivated by human relationships — the relationships they have with each other and with their objects. The work objectifies the wearer and humanises the object.
The starting point of the series was to create oversized jewellery that takes control of the wearer and forces the wearer to bend over backwards to be able to wear the piece. The wearer is being integrated in the actual piece of jewellery. Creating objects of adornment that put the wearer on display and exhibit them instead of the other way around.
‘In my work I put object and alive subjects against each other to visually battle it out. In my world the objects have a mind and motif of their own just as we do.’
