Since the beginning of his creative work in 1980, Georg Dobler, the jewellery artist and lecturer at the University of Applied Arts and Science in Hildesheim, has engaged in working with geometrical forms. Also in the mid1980s, when he first drew on naturalistic elements, provoking an outcry in the jewellery world, his work was still bound by geometrical forms. It was exactly because naturalism was viewed as outmoded, however, that Dobler was viewed as a pioneer by the next generation of studio jewellery designers.

The artist complements his casts from nature (exotic plants and beetles) – Dobler sees himself as a collector of structures and forms – with large, facetted stones as an artistic addition. Yellow to orange-glowing lemon citrine and tender lilac amethysts combine with the metal surfaces to create a shimmering play of colours. Pure silver shine is seldom found in Dobler’s work; his trademark is rather black chromium or oxidized silver surfaces that shine in iridescent black. Georg Dobler is not only a pioneer, he also finds inspiration among the great artists of early modern art. Thus in the mid1990s he drew on the abstract paintings of a Piet Mondrian, Wassily Kandinsky or Kazimir Malevich, who ignited his fantasy and inspired his compositions.

Georg Dobler: Jewellery 1980-2010 spans the Œuvre of the Berlin jewellery artist from the early 1980s to the present. A breath-taking journey from geometrical forms to casts from nature, works with stones to his current work, which unite the entire creative work of the artist in a grand symbiosis.
