In his pendants, Daniel Kruger has no difficulty masterfully mixing the most diverse materials, from gold to dried leaves, from simple glass to amber or malachite or coral, from small vegetal elements to iron shavings. They are all part of the vast and open-ended group of materials that give rise to contemporary artworks, and by using them Kruger confirms that he is experimenting with objects of an alchemical stripe. Starting from the idea of apotropaic functions that ward off evil influences and protect the weaker parts of the body, Kruger tells a new story of our present day, a today dominated by fear of an unknown that no-one imagined we could experience.


Daniel Kruger


“I use many different materials, both rich and poor. The forms vary from organic to geometric, the organic however seems to prevail. Texture, pattern and colour play a big role, as does sensuality both in the shapes as well as in the use of material. Many pieces have a distinct erotic quality. I like symmetry; often pieces are made up of pairs. For ideas I draw on natural forms and artefacts of all kind, both historical as well as contemporary. This I believe is evident in my work.” Daniel Kruger
