Art Jewellery - A Personal Perspective
|Arvinius + Orfeus Publishing
Art jewellery has departed from its tradition of being decorative ornaments and it has moved beyond solely working as social markers into a new art form not restricted to specific techniques, materials, subjects or aesthetics. Artists working with jewellery as a medium should be considered equal to fine artists. In this book, noted art jewellery specialist Inger Wästberg shines light upon art jewellery as an independent art form through a number of pieces from her own collection. She shows jewellery that reflects the times we are living in; that challenges our perception of what is considered beautiful; and that deals with topics like gender equality, overconsumption, sustainability and the transience of life.
