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.
