Sculpture to Wear
26 August 2021
Louisa Guinness Gallery is offering a curated selection of artist jewellery for sale via Sotheby’s East Hampton Gallery
‘The aesthetic of traditional jewelry as an accessory designed to enhance the wearer’s beauty is not a primary motivator, not the main goal of artist jewelry. The artist can create something that can break all the perceived barriers of what jewelry should look and feel like. The objects become an extension of their œuvre, sometimes linked to the practice they are most celebrated for, and sometimes examples of powerful and conceptual new themes and meaning.’
The catalogue and interview make interesting reading for makers interested in wearable art.
