Intro
His pieces often originate from his personal experiences. Looking back, his oeuvre might be considered to be an abstracted diary of his existence.
 

Artist list

Ruudt Peters
It all has to do with worshipping and warding off. Near ancient temples archeologists often find many statuettes, ananthemata; in Catholic churches certain sacred effigies are surrounded by numerous little metal plates depicting a part of the body, ex voto's; in Japanese temple grounds there are screens filled with small wooden plaques, ema, on which the visitors have written their prayers, and in India particular Buddha statues are graced with a sheet of gold-leaf with each visit of the faithful. Through these practices people transfer their emotions to an object. The similar phenomenon is present in Ruudt Peters jewellery, his pieces often originate from his personal experiences. Looking back, his oeuvre might be considered to be an abstracted diary of his existence. For this exhibition he has gilded a number of his older pieces time and again: a life in 11 stations - IAM.
