The publishing house arnoldsche ART PUBLISHERS continues its exhibition series on outstanding positions in art, crafts and design on Nov. 09, 2018 – with jewellery works by Gisbert Stach and ceramics by Karin Bablok.
Surprising, beautiful, humorous, bizarre and exciting: these are the names for jewellery by Gisbert Stach. He experiments with processes of transformation and alienation with his schnitzel brooches of ground amber, pearl necklaces ingrown in tree bark, or rings embedded in asphalt, and expands the concept of jewellery into new media such as photography, video, and performance.
Karin Bablok is one of Germany’s most renowned ceramic artists. She turns her wafer-thin unique porcelain pieces on the potter’s wheel. Some of these are then cut up and reassembled. The black glaze painting, sometimes gestural-expressive, sometimes geometric-linear, always refers to the form and underlines the formal clarity and balanced harmony of her vessel objects.
Gisbert Stach’s current works have recently been featured in the publication Schmuck und Experiment in our program.
