Published in honour of the Marzee Prize, which Christine Matthias awarded in 2008, this book looks back across her career from 2000 to 2009. Her jewellery, like her artistic intentions, is generous and unpretentious. Her visual language is simple and sparse yet poetic, speaking of sensual perception as well as at rational interpretation. Her pieces are large and formal, unambiguous signs on the body.
With a short essay, ‘Matters of the Heart’, by Renate Luckner-Bien.
