EXPO ‘Pattern Magic’ – Galerie Rob Koudijs, Amsterdam (NL) – 21 Juin- 2 Sept. 2014

Classé dans : Exposition/Exhibition,Gal. Rob Koudijs (NL),Hollande (NL),Ralph BAKKER (NL) — bijoucontemporain @ 2:56

Opening at midsummer evening at Galerie Rob Koudijs
21-06-2014/02-09-2014
Saturday the 21st of June the exhibition of RALPH BAKKER will open at Galerie Rob Koudijs.

 Tomorrow Saturday the 21st of June the exhibition of RALPH BAKKER and EUNMI CHUN will open at Galerie Rob Koudijs.

« Gold glows as if it emits light; the subtle colours of translucent enamels enrich the silver underneath. In his new work Ralph Bakker once again added new inventions to the age-old repertoire of the goldsmith. Even simple components such as the connecting rings which give a piece of jewellery its coherence and flexibility, are granted a contribution of their own. They may be united into clusters, or grace the flat surfaces of a necklace like the notes Bach wrote to a musical theme.
This time the folding of material has played an important role in developing the new work. Everybody knows the effect that a fold in a sheet of paper gives it a certain strength, Bakker applied this to thinly rolled out metal. By using folding as a visual means, he made necklaces and a bracelet that are both light to wear and sculptural in effect
As the title of the exhibition already indicates, Ralph Bakker has a great love for patterns. He gets intrigued by natures surface structures and systems of growing, and these designs may easily leave their traces in his work. In spite of their mathematical arrangements the resulting jewellery is surprisingly flexible when you pick them up. Actually that is only natural for an artist who’s pieces are always developed with the wearer in mind. Bakker is a maker of whom it is really true that his work reaches its completion when it is actually worn.«  Ward Schrijver  (© Galerie Rob Koudijs)

EXPO ‘Chain Reactions’ – CODA Museum, Apeldoorn (NL) – 30 Janv.-30 Mars 2014

Classé dans : Exposition/Exhibition,Hollande (NL),MUSEE,necklaces — bijoucontemporain @ 0:06

Chain Reactions: Claartje Keur’s jewellery and portraits  :exhibition in Museum Coda Apeldoorn untill 30 March 2014  – 70 Necklaces from the collection Claartje Keur.

What started with a few silver chains and pendants in the 1970s, grew into a unique collection of jewellery. Claartje Keur (1938) has been collecting jewellery for over thirty years, specialising in neck jewellery. From 30 January until 30 March 2014 CODA Museum exhibits seventy necklaces from her collection. The exhibition combines this neck jewellery with the photo portraits of designers Claartje Keur made over the years.

exhibition in Museum Coda Apeldoorn untill 30 March 2014 www.coda-apeldoorn.nl 70 Necklaces from the collection Claartje Keur.
Claartje Keur started her jewellery collection by buying a brooch designed by Sita Falkena from gallery Ra in Amsterdam in 1983. Three years later this was followed by a necklace and bracelet by Emmy van Leersum, and in 1990 Keur made her first big neck jewellery purchase. In 1998, her collection consisted of thirty necklaces made by renowned jewellery designers. Today, the collection encompasses seventy pieces of neck jewellery from the best-known artists and jewellery designers.
Claartje Keur’s interest in neck jewellery goes back to her students days (Technical College, chemical technology) when she was given a necklace with a wrought-iron pendant in the shape of a small man. This pendant comforted her in difficult times. According to Keur, neck jewellery does not only act as a talisman, it also poses a challenge to both the maker and the wearer. How does it sit on the body? How does it change your aura?
Even though her collection now consists of more than seventy necklaces, collecting was not Keur’s original aim. “I did make a very conscious decision to spend money on jewellery, but at first it was mainly out of interest. You simply turn into a collector at a certain point; usually when others describe you as such.” Buying jewellery is a matter of taste, preference, personal contacts, and of course budget. Keur is interested in modern art and photography and has a preference for neck jewellery designed by artists who have graduated from Dutch academies. Diversity of materials was also an important factor. Keur: “I buy from as many artists as possible, in as many (unusual) materials as possible. I abhor ‘things on strings’, and I am not all that keen on gold.” The Chain Reactions exhibition in CODA Museum shows how each purchase is a reaction to the previous jewel, and predicts elements, shapes or materials in the next piece.

EXPO ‘Ralph Bakker: Introduction’ – Galerie Rob Koudijs, Amsterdam (NL) – 15 Sept.-27 Oct. 2012

Ralph Bakker: Introduction

When an artist decides to make jewellery, will he or she be making utensils or works of art? Will the results merely testify to their skills and technical knowledge, or will the artistic statement stand out? These are four options that are as different as the four point of the compass. With one maker the wind will blow one way, with the next mainly from the opposite side. As an real equilibrist Ralph Bakker manages to maintain a position at the hart of the compass rose.
Bakker’s jewellery stands in a classic tradition and is proof to his considerable technical abilities, yet, his very personal way of expression stems from a different source. The combination of a full vocational training with the artistic ambitions of the Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam brought the best out in Bakker. For already twenty years has he maintained his own position in the Dutch jewellery world, without followers or competitors. Many admire his subtle colours and ingenious connections, but above all his working magic with gold, silver and enamel.

EXPO ‘Surface and Substance’ – Electrum Gallery, London (UK) – 7 Oct.-5 Nov. 2011

 Surface and Substance

International contemporary enamel jewellery  – Curated by Jessica Turrell

 

http://www.electrumgallery.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/ELECTRUM_surface_and_substance_banner.jpg


Part I: 7th October to 5th November 2011 at Electrum

Over the last few years there has been a significant revival of interest in enamel with a number of contemporary jewellers developing new ways of working with enamel that enable them to create exciting and innovative work.

This exhibition showcases the work of thirty jewellers of international standing who, through a varied set of practices, take enamel well beyond its traditional boundaries.

The title, Surface and Substance, has been chosen to emphasize that while this is clearly an exhibition that focuses on the use of vitreous enamel – the surface – of equal importance is the ‘substance’ that underpins the work on display; the thinking and the research, which along with the obvious material knowledge and skill, is evident in the striking and individual pieces on show.

EXPO ‘Remake / Remodel’ – Galerie Louise Smit, Amsterdam (NL) – 26 Mars-30 Avril 2011

ralph bakker goudsmid
ring « solitaire 6″- gold, silver, enamel, quartz

« Ralph Bakker works gold, silver, precious gems, pearls and enamel into his pieces; the technical books in his possession are all about jewelry; he has, with heart and soul, dedicated himself to the skill and magic of the goldsmith. In the late 80‘s and early 90‘s that was an unusual attitude for a young jewelry designer, particularly in the Netherlands. At that time critics were more concerned about the conceptual aspects of the ornament.
Eventually everything rolled into place. For Ralph Bakker the jewel, with all it‘s traditions and connotations, became the concept of his work. That holds true for the rich colour combinations that he builds up with his materials, for the details in his complex jewelry, for the royal place he reserves for certain stones and foremost for the suggestive effect of the true jewel; in short, the pure seduction.
The underlying theme in all the work that he has exhibited in Galerie Lousie Smit is – the erotic. Sometimes hidden, sometimes explicit. Seduction is in one‘s mind, not only the body. His work is made for women, without consciously excluding men. For him the greatest satisfaction comes from enticing a woman to posses and to wear his jewelry.
I am one of those women. In 1991 I saw a necklace with boat-shaped links of blackened silver, the insides warmly dressed with gold leaf and each boat was set with a white shell. After sleeping on it for one night I knew I had to have that necklace. As an experienced art historian I knew the erotic symbolism of the almond­shape as well as that of the shells with their tempting undersides. But as with all seduction, and perhaps most importantly, I could connect it to a story of my own.
The sensuality in the beautiful collars is ambiguous as well. They are strong in form even though they are made for that transitional place on the body, the sensitive area between neck and breast. From this position the effect of their subtle brilliance in relationship to the face is optimal. Stemming from an ancient tradition the chain mail links make these jewels into objects that willingly form themselves to the body.
Brilliance is reciprocal, suppleness asks to be touched and traditions offer a starting point for one‘s own memories and fantasy. The adage, ‘‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder‘‘, holds more than true for Ralph Bakker‘s enticing jewelry.
