Intro
Daniel Kruger (b. 1951), widely known as a jewellery artist, presents an overview of his ceramic works with 230 pieces created over twenty years.
 

Classic examples - tulip and lidded vases, Delft blue-and-white and baroque tableware - are familiar benchmarks, which Kruger combines with images of psyched-up footballers, homoerotic nudes or casts of small sections of chicken bone. (Pictorial) worlds collide, revealing our perceptions based on convention, frequently also on manipulation; there is less interest in spectacular confrontation, though, for Kruger’s fascination for systems of images leads to unexpected combinations of form and decoration. In a continual process of artistic acquisition, new interpretation and appropriation, Kruger explores the interstice between historical archetypes and kitsch within European ceramic history.

Daniel Kruger is represented in numerous public collections, including the Stedelijk Museum and Europees Keramisch Werkcentrum, ’s-Hertogenbosch (NL), The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The Garth Clark and Mark Del Veccio Collection (US), GRASSI Museum of Applied Arts Leipzig (DE) and Münchner Stadtmuseum, Munich (DE).
