This remarkable piece is sculpted polymer clay that has been colored and inscribed by the Slovakian artist ONDREJ RUDAVSKY. He was a part of a group exhibition at ARTWEAR in the early 1990’s and I purchased this mysterious piece at that time. Since then Ondrej has followed an aggressive path of art-making which includes jewelry, sculpture, drawings, paintings, performance, and films. His website is www.ondrejrudavsky.com where you will be blown away by his visions and expressions. The microscopic etchings and writing on this bangle are completely in line with all of his work over the last 30 years, whereby his strong visual and original vocabulary has been released into the world. I heartily recommend to everyone a visit to his website and watch his very short and mind-boggling films, and his art.
