GAETANO PESCE | GAETANO PESCE and his jewels
Gaetano Pesce started designing jewels in the mid-nineties, twenty years after his “Industrial Skins,” which depicted faces engraved on surfaces as thin as skin and were his first resin artwork. The amber striations and the flaming red, emerald green and sky blue foils of the polyurethane resin bracelets, necklaces and brooches flow down the female body, blooming like works of art.
“The beauty of resin comes from the qualities of the material itself. It is flexible and elastic by nature and adapts to the body as if it were a second skin,” said Gaetano Pesce, who has been living in New York for the past thirty-three years, working between the U.S. and Europe.
The exhibit Gaetano Pesce and His Jewels is a project born in collaboration with Adachiara Zevi, President of the Bruno Zevi Foundation. At the opening, Roberto D’Agostino will introduce, in conversation with the artist, the book “2002-2012 Gaetano Pesce for the Bruno Zevi Foundation” created and designed by Gaetano Pesce.
