Gallery/ @ornamentum_gallery presents “It Is What It Looks Like”, an exhibition of new rings, together with works from Karl Fritsch’s 25+ years of jewelry making, on view until August 12. German jeweler Karl Fritsch is celebrated for his prolific oeuvre composed almost entirely of rings. Each creation is a unique artwork, the designs coming- in the artist’s words- “directly from the gut”. Fritsch plays by his own rules, simultaneously embracing and discarding the age-old traditions that define jewelry in our minds. #itiswhatitlookslike #karlfritschrings#karlfritsch
