Wir präsentieren Arbeiten von  Adam & Stoffel, Michael Becker, Rudolf Bott, Petr Dvorak, Annette Ehinger, Dominique Labordery, Deborah Rudolph, Nils Schmalenbach und Pia Sommerlad.

Lustrous and colorful, hard and imperishable: stones have piqued people’s interest since the early days of human history, when hunters and gatherers, our early ancestors, interpreted them as gifts from the gods and attributed healing and protective powers to them – and used them as jewelry. Over the course of cultural history, people have changed their notions and interpretations of them. Precious stones appeared in legends and fairy tales, and were incorporated in the crowns of aristocrats and the jewelry of wealthy citizens. They became status symbols, an economic factor and the subject of scientific research. In our day and age, precious stones continue to play an important role as jewelry elements or investments. In contrast to conventional gem-studded jewelry, which features gemstones in classical cuts and arranged in repetitive patterns, contemporary jewelry artists are using their own individual techniques to restore the magic of gemstones.

Some of the Forgotten Stones showcased at Eva Maisch’s gallery radiate an almost weightless aura, others display a heavy, solid quality, and others again surprise the beholder with unusually imaginative cuts or their natural crystal structure. They stimulate our senses with finely engraved textures or imposing cuboidal shapes. Combined with matte gold, blackened silver or stainless steel, or spotlighted without any setting at all, they provide impressive reifications of creative freedom and individuality. With her current exhibition, the Würzburg-based gallerist and goldsmith provides insights into the work of eminent designers. They developed their individual styles while studying at art academies and universities, and have been honored with many international awards. At 7:30 p.m. on April 28 and 29, 2015, there will also be a concert with the singer and songwriter Hubert Treml (ArtAurea)

EXPO ‘Salute to Pinton’ – Espace Solidor, Cagnes-sur-Mer (FR) -15 Juin-6 Oct. 2013

« Salute to Pinton » – bijou contemporain

vernissage le samedi 15 juin à 18h

Espace Solidor

‘Salute to Pinton’ is an exhibition intended as an ultimate thank-you for his unrestrained unique generosity and the trust he has put in us. By means of their creations, twenty one artists give a simple salute to the great master Professor Mario Pinton.

MARIO PINTON, spilla (brooch) , oro, rubino, 1995MARIO PINTON, spilla (brooch) , oro, rubino, 1995

Mario Pinton naît en 1919 à Padoue. Il est le fils d’un graveur qui lui transmettra le goût duraffinement et du travail du métal. Ses études le portent tout d’abord à l’Ecole Nationale d’Artde sa ville natale où il travaille l’argent.
 Puis, il obtient son diplôme d’orfèvre à l’Institut National d’Art de Venise. Enfin à Milan, il apprend l’architecture à l’Académie des Beaux-Arts.Il retourne alors à Padoue pour fonder, au sein de l’Institut Pietro Selvatico,  ce qui va constituer un véritable mouvement artistique en ébullition : «L’Ecole de Padoue».
Les adeptes de ce mouvement ont tous en commun certaines préoccupations stylistiques telles que le travail de l’or, une parfaite maîtrise technique et un goût prononcé pour la pureté des formes. Si le matériau utilisé est des plus traditionnels, la conception des bijoux n’en demeure pas moins avant-gardiste. De cette école sont sortis les plus grands créateurs italiens comme Francesco Pavan, Giampaolo Babetto, Graziano Visintin pour les premières générations, Annamaria Zanella ou encore Stefano Marchetti pour les plus jeunes.

EXPO ‘Annamaria Zanella, Michael Becker : Different Stories – Formal Affinity’ – The Deutsches Goldschmiedehaus, Hanau (DE) – 28 Juin-7 Sept. 2012

Annamaria Zanella, Michael Becker : Different Stories – Formal Affinity

  Annamaria ZanellaAnnamaria Zanella Brooch: La Regina della Notte 2010 Copper gold silver niello resin pigment

Annamaria Zanella’s wearable jewelry-sculptures, all one-of-a-kind pieces, have been inspired by personal experiences and impressions. With works such as Burqua or Boats from Africa, she also makes references to social injustices. While she experiments with colors and techniques, she plays with the values of the materials. Found pieces of iron and tin are refined with elaborate fired enamel; gold and silver are painted with acrylic colors or pigments. Technical brainstorms have no value of their own for Annamaria Zanella, instead they always serve her purpose of expression. Many of her pieces seem unruly at first; only on closer examination do they reveal a poetic charm. In their plastic vigor, several works appear as miniature sculptures. The artist, born 1966 in Sant’ Angelo di Piove/Padua, has been awarded many honors such as the Bavarian State Prize (2002) and the Herbert-Hoffmann-Prize (2006) among others.

The gold- and silversmith Michael Becker has devoted himself to the view from above. Many of his jewelry pieces are similar to landscapes as seen from a great height. Architecture is repeatedly an important inspiration for his artistic work. Constructed with circles, squares, and rectangles, Becker’s chains, bracelets, and brooches manifest the longing for ideal form, the striving for absolute aestheticism.  The geometric severity and aesthetic perfection of his works can be associated with poetry, passion, and the pleasure in beauty. Michael Becker likes to work with intensely colored, monochrome color surfaces such as deep blue lapis lazuli, green garnet, or red pigment.
Michael Becker, born 1958 in Paderborn, was also honored with the Bavarian State Prize in 2002.

Zanella and Becker are represented with their works in numerous public and private collections.  Both artists are included in a publication.
