Samuel Guillén at Brooklyn Metal Works
The Spanish jewlery maker conceives, designs and materially produces all his pieces in limited editions, featuring repetitive patterns through hollow construction techniques in sterling silver.
Guillen will present his works along with David Hardcastle’s as a conclusion of a mutually enlightening interlocution that they have carried out during the last two years.
The artist’s most recent production has taken inspiration on the entanglements of basic metallic elements that constitute urban and industrial landscape: rough steel, cabling, scaffolding, tubing etc. By transforming this structures into arresting visual presences he finds the main motifs for his jewelry.
Guillen lives and works in New York. His work has been shown at the Centro Cultural Secaderos in Caracas (Venezuela) and at the Instituto Tomie Ohtake design store in São Paulo (Brasil). His last solo exhibition, titled Samuel Guillen: Recent Jewelry 2015 took place at Davis and Langdale Company in New York, which currently represents his work.
