Repoussé Sculpture

Linda Kindler Priest

Rare Book Room, Clement C. Maxwell Library - September 3 - October 31/2013



The work of Linda Kindler Priest is made of delicate repoussé sculptures that are based on nature, and meant to be worn. Each sculpture is a critical observation on our environment and to our relationship to the living world. They are developed by carefully combining imagery, textures, shapes, colors and chased surfaces, which are then finished with the selection and setting of precious stones and crystals. Each work of art is a unique; created by an ancient technique in which a malleable metal is shaped by hammering from the reverse side to create a low relief design.
Included in this exhibition are preparatory sketches and completed drawings demonstrating the artist’s working methods from a nascent thought to a completed masterful work of gold or silver.

This exhibition will be displayed in the Rare Book Room of the Clement C. Maxwell Library and has been organized by the Wallace L. Anderson gallery.
