Mesocosm describes phenomena of common human experience. Our intuitive cog-nitive faculties are adapted to a world we can observe with our unaided senses. My jewellery objects and photographs focus on the analogue and natural world, in contrast to a more and more virtual digital world.
Due to the Corona crisis the exhibition has to be postponed to a later date. I will announce the new date in time.

MARTINA DEMPF: WOOD – COCOONS – HYBRIDS
JEWELERY 2006 – 2018
I have published a catalog with examples of my work since 2006. The focus is on forms from nature, reflected in silver and other materials that fascinate me. Barbara M. Henke writes under the heading “Touching Wood – And Other Materials in Martina Dempf’s Jewelry”: ” With the transformation into an object meant for the human body, the artist removes the transience from the natural material, drawing the viewer’s attention to the beauty of the new artistic form … ”
The catalog has 48 pages,
texts in German and English,
with numerous color photos
You can order it for the price of
12 EUR plus shipping costs.
