MEET DIRECTOR JOAN GRIMAS AND PERE TORRES. RECEPTION: Tuesday, December 7th, 5PM - 7PM.
Enric Majoral captures an essence of the Mediterranean in his collections of 18K gold and silver jewelry. They are not fashion, though they reference or forecast fashion trends, but essential designs distilled through Majorals thirty-year career as a studio goldsmith and designer. Many of the pieces, like sketches, capture the purity of formal line made three-dimensional at the bench by the goldsmith. He describes his style today as "a primitivism that is conceptual at root," evidenced by the paring away of decoration and the use of gems that are cut in uncompromisingly modern form. Majorals painted and textured Obras Personales - Personal Works - are one-of-a-kind works, often painted with acrylic, that express the artists current investigations in texture and color. Come to the gallery December 7 and 8 to see his new collection.
