Artist list

Pavel Opocenský
Pavel  Opocenský is not only a highly esteemed jewellery artist and a well known sculptor, but also a great carver – rather a rarity in jewellery. This approach requires the artist to investigate the material, to imagine the invisible and make it perceivable, and last but not least, it demands enormous craftsmanship. In doing so, Pavel pushes to the limits, makes light penetrate hardness, a spectacle that does not just try to impress. His brooches convey unexpected depth; also the play of shadows adds new dimensions to the pieces. The forms remain reduced, with limited colouring, according to the conditions of the material. The beholder finds nothing additional, no decoration in his work. On the contrary, reduction is taking place; he carves out, bores out, files off. Through the artistic treatment, a perfect dialogue between form and material turns out.
