Artist list

Jantje Fleischhut
It started as a fairytale: moonlight on the mountains, blooming alpine meadows and a young prince in love. An old legend about the Dolomites served as a source of inspiration for the new jewellery of Jantje Fleischhut. She made no straightforward translations, but suggestive, abstract compositions. By combining specially designed elements with found objects she achives a subtle balance between vision, craft and coincidence.

A new chapter is added to the story: with our heads still in the clouds we arrive in the present. The mountains are opened up by the train, benches are waiting and technical installations compete with the mountain massif. People arrive at the scene - unusual in modern jewellery: lonely visitors stand pondering in the landscape.

Not only in an expressive sense, but also technically does Jantje Fleischhut work on the highest level. With great zeal she manages to broaden the possibilities of plastics as a medium for her art. She now succesfully incorperated drawings and photographs in this material, producing multilayered images with a compelling perspective. And behind the mountains the ever luring shine of gold and silver.
