AboutThe New Art Centre is proud to announce an exhibition in the Artists' House that brings together new work by Sir Anthony Caro and Edmund de Waal.
Caro is not a modeller of jewellery but rather a sculptor of pieces in gold" (Kosme de Baraà ±ano, 2008). The recent departure into making gold or silver jewellery by Anthony Caro (born 1924) is the result of collaboration with Grassy, Madrid. Less well known than his sculpture, each item of jewellery is unique and reflects many of Caro's sculptural concerns. Like his sculptures, Caro's jewellery combines functional or industrial elements to create intricate structures that are at once complex, architectural and mechanical. Their sweeping shapes of divergent planes and surfaces create a sense of great spontaneity, with light gliding over and bouncing off the play of forms. The intimacy of modelling such small-scale work with his fingertips, also served as a counterpoint to the large and monumental constructions.
