The Aesthetics of the Brushstroke
The fascination of the "Painting + Structure" collection by the Kreuchauff studio originates in the aesthetics of finely placed brushstrokes. The unique pieces are based on pictures painted by Jürgen Kreuchauff (born in 1952, jewellery designer, photographer), from which individual fragments are used to create a piece of jewellery. Each piece of jewellery is a unique art object.
The idea of using fragile materials such as 24-carat gold leaf, 925 silver leaf and colour pigments with painting and graphic techniques to create a piece of jewellery, whereby unique colour and structure gradients develop, results in works that are suitable for everyday use despite their delicate appearance.
