"Sampleando" 18K Gold, Sterling Silver and Diamond in the Rough Ring by Juanjo García Martín. This is a one of a kind fine jewelry creation hand made in Málaga, Spain.
From the artist:
"A sampler is a musical instrument, similar to a synthesizer, that plays previously recorded audio samples. This is the inspiration I have used in this piece. I have sampled the idea of another artist to turn it into a new idea (but inspired by his work.) In the field of painting this strategy is not new. We find examples in works such as Picasso. When he would visit the workshops of other painters, they would hide their works with sheets or towels, so that he couldn't see anything. But we must not confuse ourselves: sampling is not copying. It is to remove an element from its original context and convert it into a fragment or piece that will serve to make up another different whole. We live in a world where we receive stimuli and information from multiple fronts, and the tas of the contemporary artist consists largely in reusing and reinterpreting such information. We can almost consider it as a recycling job."
