Intro
Beppe Kessler shows jewellery, drawings and paintings. There is a strong interaction between the drawings/paintings and the jewellery. A painting or drawing can be the starting point of a brooch and vice versa.

Artist list

Beppe Kessler
In paint on aluminium, she draws lines with an etching needle. Scratching deep into the metal, the needle leaves traces and causes the surface to shimmer and shine. The painted image becomes spatial, making it float as if it is three dimensional.
Materials carry a wealth of meanings, but Beppe Kessler is looking for a more universal kind of poetry. The mixed materials she uses for the compositions are often plain and of no value. She gives them new meaning to enter a rhythmic line play together. On the one hand, it is a constant searching for the most minimal form, and on the other, a feast of bringing different materials together that call out for the viewer to touch them.

Beppe Kessler is an artist living and working in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. She graduated from Gerrit Rietveld, the Textile Department, 1979. Since then she has been exhibited worldwide, awarded for her excellent work and purchased to a number of collections.
