Intro
Galleri Hnoss is proud to present the jewellery artist Gemma Draper, working out of Barcelona.

Artist list

Gemma Draper
Gemma Draper playfully explores her own fascination for ideas and concepts, creating physical objects with a unique sensitivity to their own world. The philosophical approach towards her own creations adds to her expression, often commenting on the problem of interpreting something out of reality. Or, as she puts it, "When we want to illuminate reality, aren’t we imposing, precisely, a disproportion that burns it?"

Gemma was born in 1971. Among her academic merits she holds a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from Autonomous University of Barcelona and a Master of Fine Arts at Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, USA, besides being a graduate from famed school Massana in Barcelona. She has previously displayed her work at solo exhibitions in Stockholm, Munich, Amsterdam, Helsinki and Barcelona. She also teaches and holds lectures across the world.

In the exhibition at galleri Hnoss Gemma will show pieces from her latest projects "The floating knot" and "The nuptial suite"
