Evert Nijland (b. 1971) is one of the leading jewellery artists of his generation. Trained in the Conceptual Art and Minimalism of the 1990s at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, he developed a flamboyant and exuberant style, which drew on (art-)historical resources yet is thoroughly anchored in the present.

A typical characteristic of Nijland is working with a variety of artisans. It enables him to integrate such diverse materials as porcelain, wood, textile or steel into his works. His use of glass in jewellery, in particular, is unparalleled.

This publication presents an exciting review in opulent photographs of Evert Nijland’s jewellery-making from over twenty years. Montages of images are a particular highlight, in which jewellery from works of Western art is superimposed, serving Nijland as both a reference and a source of inspiration.

Evert Nijland is represented in numerous museums worldwide, including the Nationaal Zilvermuseum, Schoonhoven (NL), the Musée des Arts décoratifs et de la Mode, Marseille (FR), TextielMuseum, Tilburg (NL), MMK Museum, Arnhem (NL), CODA Museum, Apeldoorn (NL), mima, Middlesbrough Intitute of Modern Art (GB), Collectie Marjan en Gerard Unger, Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam (NL), Glass Museum, Tacoma, WA (US), The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (US), the Museum of Arts and Design, New York (US), Study Collection Royal College of Art, London (UK), Victoria and Albert Museum, London (UK), Mint Museum of Crafts & Design, Charlotte, NC (US), Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (NL), Schmuckmuseum Pforzheim (DE).
