Esther de Beaucé, editor of artists’ jewelry, is for the first time holding a solo exhibition of works by Jacqueline de Jong, a Dutch painter who had affiliations with the COBRA movement. “I love the power and poetry of her sculptural jewelry,” says the gallery owner, “As they speak of the slow rhythm of nature and randomness”. Strange and unique, each “Pomme de Jong” is made by the artist from potatoes grown in her garden, which are then left to dry out for several years, the time necessary for the long intertwining sprouts to grow. Arranged and sculpted, plunged into a double bath of copper then gold or platinum, they transform themselves into jewelry pieces that cling to a jacket lapel, or wrap around the neck or wrist. Creepy, fascinating and somewhat erotic.
You Say Potato exhibition until November 10th 2017 at the miniMASTERPIECE gallery.
