May 25th will conclude the run of show for Jill Platner’s debut sculpture exhibition. The Manhattan-based jewelry designer’s large-scale metal sculpture installation has been housed at a pop-up gallery next to her famed store on 113 Crosby St.  Nine works, ranging in size from four feet to over ten feet tall, have been on display throughout the month of May and are available for sale.

Though this is the first time Platner has collectively shown her sculptures, they were originally conceptualized years ago when she first began making jewelry; which she has always considered to be wearable art.  With the sculpture work she was finally able to explore the mechanics of balance and weight on a much larger scale.  Movement, gravity and connectivity are essential elements of her nature-inspired designs – allowing for the possibility of interactivity with the viewer, an integral component to her bold installation.

Cool Hunting says, “The sculptures, constructed from steel, copper and bronze, resonate with Platner’s strong, elegant style.  In the gallery setting, the dramatic installation uses harsh light to cast shadows across and through the pieces, creating silhouettes almost as enchanting as the work itself.”
