This book coincides with a related exhibition titled "Vernieuwd Verleden/Renewed Past", which was presented at CODA Museum, Apeldoorn, but does not specifically document the show. Publisher's description: Evert Nijland (b. 1971) is one of the leading jewelry artists of his generation. Trained in the Conceptual Art and Minimalism of the 1990s at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, he developed a flamboyant and exuberant style, which drew on (art-) historical resources yet is thoroughly anchored in the present. A typical characteristic of Nijland is working with a variety of artisans. It enables him to integrate such diverse materials as porcelain, wood, textile or steel into his works. His use of glass in jewelry, in particular, is unparalleled. This publication presents an exciting review in opulent photographs of Evert Nijland's jewelry-making over twenty years. Montages of images are a particular highlight, in which jewelry from works of Western art is superimposed, serving Nijland as both a reference and a source of inspiration.
