Daniel Brush at the École des Arts Joailliers

You can now book a visit to this remarkable exhibition: the American artist‘s first in France. His well-known bakelite “Bunny Bangle” in no way encapsulates his polymorphic output… The school has decided to present two series of steel jewellery, sometimes set with stones, featuring dog collars (now celebrated in the book Necks) and bangles. To help visitors understand the exceptional work of this eccentric artist who belongs to no system, has no agent or gallery and produces very few pieces, the school will also be presenting sculptures, objects and paintings. Everything smacks of the uncompromising and obsessional, like the box for which he made each of thousands of tiny gold balls, and the 1m x 1m 50 paintings, formed not by giant brushstrokes but by thousands and thousands of lines traced with a pen. This accounts for the extraordinary rarity of his pieces, considered works of art by museums and collectors.

13 to 31 October 2017, Monday to Saturday from 2 to 7 p.m. – L’École des Arts Joailliers – 31, rue Danielle Casanova, 75001 Paris.
