Intro
An exhibition of photographs and face jewelry by 92Y’s 2019 Artist In Residence. Claudia Lepik is an Estonian jeweler working in metal and mixed media with an edgy, avant-garde style.
As a recent graduate of the Estonian Academy of Arts, Claudia Lepik explores connecting jewelry to the body in unusual ways, using the power of tension in her materials to hide and reveal parts of the body, and delves into the themes of strength and fragility. This show is part of NYC Jewelry Week.

Lepik's pieces block and distort the face, sometimes in ways that are conventionally attractive, and other times in ways that challenge conventional expectations of jewelry.
