Guest Star Friday #77...Reka Fekete

Hungarian-born, Amsterdam-based Reka Fekete makes jewelry and objects using discarded zinc etching plates. Reka uses this material because of its history--the plates contain the marks of other artists and these drawings and sketches connect their work with her work. The plates are further layered, stacked, and assembled together with tiny stitches in yarn or steel wire. Other subtle details include an occasional bit of color that remains from previous printing. Each piece has a monumental presence despite is small scale.

Thanks for reading.
