« Beppe Kessler is not interested in pigeonholing. She was trained as a textile designer and actually did create fabrics and carpets, but she is just as passionate about working on her paintings and has been making jewellery for many years. In the 1980s she was part of the jewellery revolution in The Netherlands and produced beautiful bracelets and necklaces using rubber bands, plastic wesh and spinnaker cloth. In later years she often used balsa wood and textiles. All these activities are connected by Kessler’s infinite curiosity about the characteristics of materials and the, often surprising, results of processing them.
As her introduction in the gallery, Kessler shows pieces from the last two, three years, that testify to her inquisitive, inquiring mind. Also another, extremely important aspect of her work manifests itself in the exhibition: she is an artist who mananges to grant her pieces a poetic quality without having to refer to anecdotes and references.
During an artist-in-residency in the German town of Idar-Oberstein, Kessler researched the possibilities of polishing gemstones: natural erosion processes particularly interested her. For isn’t it a fascinating fact that during polishing the pursuit of beauty coincide with destruction and loss? The polishing process became an important aspect in the making of the jewellery in the show. In some pieces perspex was fitted with irregular facets and combined with fragments taken from CD’s, in a few of the recent works the perspex was polished into clear windows framing imaginairy landscapes.
In her jewellery Beppe Kessler manages to combine craft with eloquence and the sensorial with the poetic. »  Ward Schrijver
