Intro
The name of the show – "AIR" (translated from the Hebrew word "AVIR") presents the idea of the ring as a "void" that the body must fill.
Gallery Loupe presents "AIR" – an exhibition of rings created by art and design masters from the faculty of the Jewelry Design and Industrial Design Departments at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design in Tel Aviv, Israel. The name of the show – "AIR" (translated from the Hebrew work "AVIR") presents the idea of the ring as a "void" that the body must fill. Each participating artist addresses this concept in a unique way using a provocative range of material and meaning

"AIR" has been curated by internationally recognized Contemporary Studio Jeweler, Prof. Deganit Stern Schocken. Prof. Stern Schocken's own work has been exhibited worldwide for over three decades and she continues to be a leader in the world of Contemporary Art Jewelry in Israel and abroad.

"Rings are symbolically charged objects in all cultures and times, bearing much tradition, mythology, fantasy and energy." The ring is "penetrable" – it envelopes the body even as the body penetrates it. The hand, provides the platform for the ring's meaning, the weight of symbol, memory and beauty." – 

Deganit Stern Schocken
