Lily Rosenberg and Sonja Rosenberg Trunk Show
Friday, October 25, 2013 to Sunday, October 27, 2013
Meet Lily and Sonja Rosenberg at the opening reception on Friday, October 25, 6-9pm.
In their respective studio practices, Lily and Sonja Rosenberg boldly experiment with some unlikely jewelry materials, often emphasizing texture and adding shots of colour as they create new forms.
Inspired by world cultures and their artifacts, and using traditional goldsmithing techniques, Lily forges surprising and beautiful relationships between some unlikely materials. Gold, silver, and precious stones are often paired with the less traditional such as found glass, steel, and fibre. The resulting works are clearly minimialist, yet undeniably sensual wearable art.
Sonja is inspired by the structure and formation of both urban and natural landscapes when defining the individual texture and form within each of her pieces. Stone elements, the focal point of each piece, are complemented by the innovative use of alternative materials, including glass microbeads, resin, horsehair, and sea sponge.
