Artist list

Arline Fisch
"I have always been concerned with the making of jewelry to be worn, of unique works of art, which have the human body as their site. I try always to develop objects of personal adornment, which have dramatic impact yet do not place the wearer in the role of anonymous pedestal, forms which please and exalt the wearer. The strongest influences on my work have come from studies of ancient cultures - Etruscan, Egyptian, Greek, Pre-Columbian - from which I have derived direction, design courage and technical information."

Remarks

Opening reception: Saturday May 17th from 15 to 17h
