The Austrian Peter Skubic (*1935) is still considered the ‘agent provocateur’ among jewelry artists today. His first works in gold were created around 1969. Within a short time he was considered one of the most highly-regarded and influential innovators in this field internationally.
His dictum: Jewelry is an intellectual discipline.
The central principles of his design are austerity, clarity of proportion, precision, radical minimalism and uncompromising rebelliousness. Tension brooches, balancing objects – these are characteristic namings of just two groups of works.
The artist/engineer Peter Skubic sees making jewelry as an adventure, a body happening, a creative liberating act going beyond established borders.
