It is a great joy for the Slavik Gallery to be presenting the work of Alexandra Brachtendorf and Alejandra Solar in its latest exhibition: SHINE BRIGHT LIKE A DIAMOND. These two artists share a profound love of high-quality and unusual works of jewellery art. Forms that are soft but clear enter into an exciting dialogue with nature and landscape impressions that are full of mystery.

Alexandra Brachtendorf’s materials of choice are the precious metals gold and silver, which inspire her to works of art that throb with life. The surfaces of her works are wrought into fascinating structures, with light and shadow being joined in an endless interplay of perspectives and miniature spaces. The artist makes it a special priority to ensure that every one of her entirely individual works will be capable of reflecting and emphasizing the unique personality of its wearer.

The prize-winning jewellery artist Alejandra Solar is a graduate of the college at Idar-Oberstein and has an especial love of stones of all kinds. While her principal creations are brooches in chalcedony or rock crystal, she also likes to use lemon-yellow or bluish-green agate. She embellishes the polished surfaces with miniature depictions: views of towns, a graphic winter landscape, delicate branches picturesque against a transparent yellow ground.

We invite you and your friends to join us and are looking forward to seeing you all at the exhibition!
