We are delighted to continue our successful arnoldsche Art Publishers exhibition series with three outstanding positions in contemporary jewelry and ceramic art from France.
Nitsa Meletopoulos’ and Victor Alarçon’s exuberant, colorful, and intoxicating ceramic sculp-tures toy with a mix of Surrealism, Pop Art, and Op art. The sometimes psychedelic repertoire of colors creates organic and grotesque works that evoke an aesthetic of excess but also draw on historical and traditional references. New works show the great sophistication of these two young shooting stars of the French ceramics scene.
Sébastien Carré’s masterful works are an expression of his life’s journey. After the sudden onset of a serious illness, the young French jewelry artist traded precious metals for beads and textiles. He has since created filigree beaded jewelry from onyx, garnet, carnelian, and jasper. His breathtaking landscapes and coral reefs show the close connection between man and nature. They remind us to respect our natural environment.
