Point & line on …Jewellery!
Judy McCaig + Jamie Bennett
From June 1st to 29th, the Robert Mazlo Endowment Fund for Art and Contemporary Art Jewellery presents at gallery LA Joaillerie par Mazlo a selection of works by Judy McCaig and Jamie Bennett, two contemporary art jewellers who have chosen from their beginnings to place drawing and painting at the center of their approach. As suggested by its title, which alludes to Vassily Kandinsky’s second theoretical book on painting, this exhibition questions the pictorial dimension of jewellery as expressed in the work of these two artists, establishing a dialogue in order to highlight what distinguishes as much as what unites them.
As an echo to the works of Judy McCaig and Jamie Bennett, an invitation was addressed to Heidemarie Herb. Visitors will discover a selection of her jewellery works, from the “Mini Pictures” series. The artist explores the relationship between man and nature, the mysteries of the cycle of life, from birth to death, either by exploiting the expressive dimension of colour or by adopting a style which recalls the Chinese Literati paintings.
