Full Description
The multifarious relationships between drawing and jewelry constitute a largely unknown aspect of contemporary art jewelry. Private Confessions, the first publication on this topic, therefore focuses on graphic work by well-known and aspiring artists, opening up new perspectives through its juxtaposition with jewelry objects. In addition, it also deals with drawing as an artistic action and as autonomous expression, transgressing disciplinary boundaries through experimental expansion and the pursuit to broaden familiar terrain. It accompanies aesthetic reflection and exemplifies the creative back-and-forth that enables intimate dialogue with artistic impulses. A groundbreaking work, which showcases the fusion of applied and fine arts before your very eyes!

Text in English and German.
