Intro
A room of his own is Daniel Kruger's solo exhibition. The crafting of each piece is part of the creative thinking process, expressing the human facility as maker, his ability to invent and to do this without fulfilling a functional or existential need.

Artist list

Daniel Kruger
The jewellery I make is to adorn a person. Its place is the body and its intention is to enhance the wearer. It should be a celebration, to make the wearing of it an occasion. It is also, when not worn, an object for reflection. It is both jewellery and an artefact conceived and made by one person for the enjoyment and gratification of another person.

The jewellery I make reflects my origin both from the semi desert southern Namibia where I grew up as well as from the European traditions in which I was socialized and educated.
 
My intimacy with the landscape of my childhood and youth, the sensual immediacy of the natural element, the subtlety of colours and the dramatic spectacle of natural phenomena and the equally grandiose quiet and great distances and apparent timelessness. A landscape in which the human being plays a subordinated role and has left very few traces.
 
The search for my origin in a culture which existed far away from where I grew up. There, over time and in many countries natural resources had been utilised and knowledge accumulated in order to develop and refine technologies and ideas for creating comfort and benefits for people, for their intellectual and pleasurable pursuits as well as their amusement. It is a landscape that is cultivated and dominated by man.
 
My concern in both cases is for the natural object and the artefact.
