Ruudt Peters

Ruudt Peters

Naaldwijk ,The Netherlands, 1950

In his research the jewel becomes part of a system of representation in which religions, philosophies, symbols and alchemy, combined with encounters and the suggestions of other cultures experienced during his travels, are melded, mingled and reworked, going to make up the prime matter of his works.
His jewels are organised into ‘families’ linked to a specific reference, such as for example the stage of an alchemical process for Iosis (2002) or the Kabbalah for Sefiroth (2006), and to the materials used to make them as in Lapis (1997), where the mineral powders are reworked to create a new material. Nevertheless, an overview of his work enables us to grasp the consistency of a process that has conceived the jewel as a condensate of emotions and suggestions, an object imbued with an archaic rituality while being enunciated in an idiom that is entirely contemporary.
