Intro
Observing my environment and being influenced by the culture. It is an individual process in which I understand the self
-portrait as a possibility of self-questioning. Both, the reflection on the environment and the reflection on myself are the point of origin of my work.

Artist list

Niklas Link
The ambiguity of a character, which is written in my face, makes the diversity arise. From the freedom of a mask and the personal touch of a caricature to the generality of a symbol: This is how I would describe the main aspects of my jewellery. The hollow bodies made of steel always develop from sketches which are based on self portraits. They are conventionalized and three dimensional images of myself. Most of them are blackened and therefore you do not always recognize the material immediately. By integrating ready-mades, which are plastic articles that I encounter in my everyday life, zirconia and lacquers I additionally highlight specific features. Or, I can point out specific characteristic traits. This way conventionalized and three-dimensional images come into existence: ICONS.
