Kris Ruhs Jewellery

Kris Ruhs has over the years built up a sizable body of work; each piece is hammered,

shaped and composed in a way that echoes the artist’s larger sculptures.

Ruhs’s artistic curiosity is reflected in mediums

as diverse as rope, wood, silver, brass and gold.

The organic elements individually fashioned in these materials,

when joined together, lead the eye into seeing increasingly complex relationships

between the simple shapes he chooses to fashion.

On view are a series of necklaces, brooches, pendants and body ornaments

that echo Ruhs’s larger and earlier projects, expanding

from his first exhibitions in New York City in the 1980’s to the present.
