Ring Oval In Burnished Silver

URI SIMETI

unveiled his monochromatic ellipses in several exhibitions from 1963 which were part of the ZERO and New Tendencies movement. His participation in the “ZERO Avantgarde” project, which made its debut in 1965 in Lucio Fontana’s studio in Milan, played an even greater role in featuring Simeti’s work as part of this specific scenario. In 1965, after moving to Milan, Simeti held his first solo exhibition in the Wulfengasse Gallery in Klagenfurt. Between 1966 and 1969, he was invited in Residence by the Fairleigh Dickinson University and he set up his studio in New York. During these years, Simeti’s work was to shapeup mainly as consequential research, in the transition from single elements to diptychs and polyptychs with a projecting element, often decentralized, and with an experimentation of different formats and outlines, reaching effects of greater spatial complexity during the Eighties. After years of intense work on an international level, he came back to Italy with a solo show presented at the Vismara Gallery in Milan. His works were exhibited alongside Castellani, Bonalumi and others in exhibitions such as “The Extroflexed Canvas in the Milanese Area from 1958 until Today” at the Arte Struktura Gallery in 1989 and “‘58-‘80 Bonalumi - Castellani - Simeti: Three Itineraries”. Simeti currently lives and works in Milan.

This ring has been inspired by a master’s work made on canvas, representing one oval in the centre of a square canvas. The ring is made of sterling silver with a black rhodium bath, entirely handcrafted by hand, with fusions on the sides, which allow the square above to be empty inside, to limit its weight and promote wearability.

Earrings Square In Burnished Silver These are taken from the same work of the master, with an oval in the centre of a square canvas. Made of 925 silver with black rhodium bath, entirely handcrafted by hand, one by one, with fusions on the sides, which allow to limit the weight, being empty inside, and therefore to facilitate the portability and the ergonomics.
