JEWELLERY ART POETRY AND GEOMETRY
Annamaria Zanella and Renzo Pasquale Exhibition For the period of the Vienna Festival the Slavik Gallery is presenting a special duo exhibition devoted to the work of the artists – and married couple – Annamaria Zanella and Renzo Pasquale. Although they have quite different styles, their jewellery is complementary. Together, their artefacts form a wonderfully harmonious whole.

Annamaria Zanella‘s fascinating jewellery objects are as exciting as they are unusual. In this exhibition she is presenting colourful necklaces made in idiosyncratic materials to which she gives a special finish with elements in gold. But in her diverse and highly imaginative creative world there is also room for glass, enamel and plastics, all radiant with powerful, finely harmonized colours. Every one of her miniature sculptures is an expression of the artist’s breathtaking inner power and bubbling energy. All richly poetic, many also have a special story to tell, such as the « Gala » brooch in silver, enamel and red plastic that she dedicated to Gala Eluard, who was muse and wife to both Paul Eluard and Salvador Dali.

The work of the jewellery artist Renzo Pasquale is permeated by a great love of geometry. Masterfully worked in silver, titanium and plexiglass, his brooch « Olimpico » betrays his admiration for the Italian Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio, whose example has inspired Renzo Pasquale to an oeuvre characterized by aesthetic balance, perfect proportions, and the noble harmony of classical Italian poetry. Also a stonemason by training, he invests his gold rings with a special clarity and liveliness through a precise use of cut lapis lazuli, jasper and agate.
