Intro
The series by Klimt02 offers space for questions, ideas, and discussions about galleries, artists and the current jewellery market. This is the eight interview in a series of interviews with gallerists and art dealers from around the world.

We continue with Ivan Barnett, co-owner and director of Patina Gallery. Established in 1999, Patina exhibits clay, wood, sculpture, fiber and other mixed media objects. The gallery holds a unique position in the field because as few others, they show studio jewelry in the same gallery space with larger works. The gallerists stage them in a manner that allows ‘aesthetic discussions’ to take place, a kind of dialogue between the jewelry and different objects in the space.
