Stephanie HensleOpening on Friday at the Kath Libbert Gallery is 'Natural Histrionics' an international art jewellery exhibition featuring work that has been inspired by nature, celebrating the drama of the natural world.

With a global reputation for showcasing the best in contemporary jewellery, Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery will yet again surprise and delight with a fantastical array of art jewellery inspired by nature, including creations from quail eggs, Billy goat horn, and charcoal!

Jie Sun

 

 

 

Chinese artist Jie Sun presents his ‘Big Fish’ golden Koi Carp brooches which when worn appear to swim straight out of the body.

 

 

 

Hyorim Lee

 

 

 

 

Hyorim Lee fashions finely feathered necklaces from colourful layers of softly luxurious leather.

 

 

 

Stephanie Hensle

 

 

From her collection ‘On Death and Beauty’ comes a Fantastical Mr Fox fur stole by German artist Stephanie Hensle, painstakingly constructed from thousands of etched brass segments - a tactile, glamorous sensory experience, Stephanie also crafts shimmering Butterfly brooches from paper-thin metals etched and tinted pastel colours, as delicate and light as gossamer wings.

Anja Eichler

 

 

 

Quail eggs are the medium of choice for Anja Eichler’s sensitive collection which uses the symbolism of a fragile egg to reflect on our human condition – falling, failing, repairing and rising up again, stronger for the experiences we have encountered and survived.

 

 

Susanne Elstner

 

 

‘Out of the Ashes’ by Susanne Elstner is a collection of jewellery from charcoal and fine gold which also has a point to make. Of it she says “Miracles even occur on barren land. Therefore, at times something new and beautiful can grow out of a piece of burned wood.”


 

Konrad Laimer

 

 

 

 

Konrad Laimer is inspired by the plants and animals of his Alpine environment, where he fashions elegant bangles, rings and brooches from the horns of Alpine goats and Chamois.

 

 

Dorit Schubert

 

 

 

Plant life inspires Dorit Schubert, who uses traditional German lace making techniques, reviving this dying craft, to create her delightful collection of floral jewellery - delicate transparent and light - though actually surprisingly robust!

 

Nel Linssen

 

 

 

Finally Nel Linssen, award winning doyenne of art jewellery, presents her collection of snake like necklaces and bangles - superbly intricate folded paper constructions inspired by rhythms and structures in the botanical world.


 

 

 

To rival the drama of nature, visitors will be invited to choose their favourite piece from the exhibition and declaim their enthusiasm for it by taking part in our ‘Natural Histrionics’ video compilation, which will be screened during the show! If a little help is needed to get over stage fright – all who participate in the video project will also be entered into a draw to win a £100 KLJG voucher.
 
The exhibition runs from 12th July – 29th September 2013
