Guest Star Friday #139… Silke Spitzer

Amidst all my reading about contemporary art, I'm continuing to pay attention to contemporary jewelry. The work of Silke Spitzer caught my eye recently with its minimal design, graphic look and delicate use of alternative materials. I like the layering in these pieces and the wonderful textures and movement Silke achieves through repetition. She also strikes a wonderful balance of visual weight with each piece appearing both heavy and light. The open, interior spaces and elegant lines create a sense of comfort and calm as the eye and mind are given room to move around.

Currently, Silke's work is on view at Ornamentum Gallery in Hudson, NY, but only for a few more days. If you can't make it there, you can see more images of the work and installation views of the exhibition on the Ornamentum website.

Thanks for reading.
