Artist list

Beppe Kessler
Look, see, discover. That is the basis of everything that the artist Beppe Kessler makes - an open eye for adventure. At Beppe Kessler there is always an extremely fruitful interaction between making the big and the small work: often one influences the other. Kessler regularly uses painting techniques in her jewelry and vice versa.

All of Beppe Kessler's work is essentially sculptural. She makes no distinction between autonomous and functional objects: she is a draftsman who embroiders, a weaver who paints, a woodworker who makes jewelry; someone for whom choosing is not a choice.
 
Beppe Kessler's work is modest, searching, suggestive. They are not aspects that dominate in today's hyper-communicative society. Kessler makes pieces that demand attention and peace; not only during the making, but also from the person looking at the result. The title of the exhibition A Time of Seeing comes from a poem by K. Schippers and not only refers to the artist's long-term career, but also serves as a call to the visitor to look, see, discover.
