Galerie Slavik opens its doors to the Winter Journey 2011, thus leading the way to the multifaceted world of contemporary jewellery art.
The gallery presents works by internationally renowned masters of their craft like Bruno Martinazzi and Anna Heindl, as well as young and creative talents, among them Giovanni Sicuro, Isabell Schaupp and Kamilla Ruberg. The broad spectrum of exhibits ranges from strictly geometrical brooches and extraordinary, hollow-shaped bracelets to ingeniously playful necklaces and delicately floating ring creations in gold.
Bruno Martinazzi presents miniature sculptures in gold and silver evidencing his power of expression. The artist amalgamates timeless classic materials with symbolic design to generate a complex dialogue. His miniature sculptures of body parts such as hands, fingers, lips, the navel, a breast, or just eyes in his brooch “Occhi”, dissevered from the human context, are what we call “art to wear”.
Fine brooches in gold, the geometric sculptures by the Danish artist Kamilla Ruberg, sparkle and shine. The artist loves to play with geometric structures, using their potential to generate movement, create patterns and evoke optical illusions in her works.
The powerful sculptures by the Italian jewellery artist Giovanni Sicuro, worn as brooches or pendants, and his rings in gold and niello are highlights of our winter journey.
The young German artist Thanh- Truc Nguyen develops a totally new vocabulary of forms in her works: soft transparency in fascinating shapes. The new enamel brooches by Isabell Schaupp focus on the interplay of light and shade in dream images created with black pearls as in “Shadow of Pearls”.
“Pearl Buds”, enchanting earrings made of gold and freshwater pearls by Anna Heindl, underline the individuality of their wearer.
Accompany us into the enchanting world of contemporary jewellery art. We look forward to your visit.
