SHIRLEY BAR-AMOTZ: HAPPY DAYS | THE 2012 ANDREA M. BRONFMAN PRIZE

SHIRLEY BAR-AMOTZ: HAPPY DAYS
THE 2012 ANDREA M. BRONFMAN PRIZE

 

Jewelry serves artist Shirley Bar-Amotz as a means
for making socially relevant statements. Using
"free craft" which combines precious metals with
synthetic materials and ready-made molds, Bar-
Amotz creates tiny worlds, seemingly from European
landscapes: forests, lakes and snow-capped
mountains, as well as animals trapped in mounds of
color, forming a duality of joyful colorfulness and a
tough reality.
