KLAUS BÜRGEL: NEW EXHIBITION AT GALLERY LOUPE

Gallery Loupe is showing the continuing work of Klaus Buergel named Loop from 14.11-12.12.2011 in New Jersey, USA.

The artist was born in Germany and among other disciplines he studied goldsmithing in Pforzheim and fine arts at the Akademie der Bildenden Kuenste in Munich. He begun his Loop series in 2004 and uses mainly gold and silver to create these mysteriously complicated and elegant brooches that seem like they are about to move out of the picture.

There is also a very inspiring interview on his web site, where Mr. Buergel explains how he started creating jewellery, who he looked up to when he was a young student (he names Anton Cepka, Reinhold Reiling, Hermann Jünger, Daniel Kruger, Manfred Bischoff, Claus Buri, Therese Hilbert, Otto Künzli, Bernhard Schobinger among others) and what he believes about jewellery as a maker and teacher.

It is always so inspiring to read how artists who really love what they are doing, talk about their experiences, their life and their beliefs.
