Artist list

Karl Fritsch
“The ring is desperate, desperate to find a finger, desperate to tell you: I love you, I am beautiful, I am rich, I am cool, I hate you, I come from Ireland or Austria, I want more, I have enough, I am married, I am funny, I am scary, stupid, important, I can´t help you. I am.”

Karl Fritsch


Purifying and removing the weight of the past is what Karl does. His jewellery and approach is actually very conventional in form, in function and the choice of materials and yet completely new. He disregards age-old values that have become stale and shallow. He does not deal in envy and does not reproach or grudge. Instead Karl invites us to look at things anew, to discard the baggage that has become a hindrance and to look at things and enjoy them for what they are.

Daniel Kruger (excerpt of the text for Karl Fritsch catalogue)
