Carlos Cruz Diez- Jewels
Design Miami 3- 8 December 2013
Carlos Cruz-Diez is internationally considered a master living artist of our time for his contributions to the theory and practice of color. Most recently in April 2012, he inaugurated a monumental artwork of architectural integration, consisting of walkways for the Miami Marlins ballpark.
For the On/Sight program, Carlos Cruz-Diez will strongly intervene with the presentation of eleven pieces of jewelry, six of which were realized for the occasion of the fair and an op wall sticker specifically thought and designed for the booth. The focus of this representation will be on color, line and the viewer’s perception.
The jewelry pieces presented, will be bracelets, necklaces, rings and rare brooches that the artist had hand made in the 90’s for his family and friends. These pieces gather two types of self-defined op art categories: Physichoromies and Choromointerferences; All of his color-based experiments focus on variations of the observer’s position in relation to the work, the light directed at the work, and the relationship between the colors presented.
The new pieces are made in 18kt yellow and white gold and realized in a limited edition of 5 to 12 pieces.
