Artist listTamara Grüner
With the solo exhibition 'Two Faces' the jewellery designer Tamara Grüner shows a comprehensive look at different aspects of her work. On one hand the exhibition focuses on colourful jewellery and on the other hand on pieces of black jewellery. At first sight it is difficult to see similarities in the two types of work.
Colours, diversity, materiality, quills and knobs, transparency and a great variety of shapes of the underwater world are the sources of inspiration for Tamara's colourful work. Porcelain and plastics are the preferred material.
As a result of her fascination with 'Berlin iron jewellery' of the 19th century, the colour black pervades the pieces in all its variations. Pressed and stamped parts from the period of historicism are combined with black porcelain and plastic in these jewellery pieces.
Lavish materialism and lush ornamentation, which can be found in jewellery from the Baroque period, have been transformed into contemporary jewellery.
Both topics, the underwater world and the historical looking jewellery immediately draw the visitor under his spell and makes him travel through time.
