Artist list

Célio Braga
Célio Braga does not make jewellery. He observes people and their interaction and gives a reaction through the objects he creates. Those pieces can sometimes be worn as a brooch or a necklace. Truly applied art: the object that poses questions and hands you suggestions can accompany you all day. As a recollection, a confrontation or an act of wilfulness.

The surface of everything Braga produces is always some sort of battlefield: elabourately worked and charged with meanings. Growth, profusion, decay, alienation, damage: essential notions of the 'condition humaine'. In his latest work a velvety night has descended, suggestive as the stars in the night-sky. The black mystery does not imply a static universe: bruises and imperfections seem to be healing, growth manifests itself everywhere and life permeates through every pore.

Next to these jewellery-related pieces Galerie Rob Koudijs also exhibits Célio Braga’s ceramic works. The plasticity of clay and the expressiveness of the glazes allowed the artist to venture into new domains. Once again the work concerns itself with the frailty of human life and the meeting with the other. Topics unexplored and yet familiar.
