“This solo show presents over 30 one-of-a-kind sculptural rings designed by Claudio Pino and also questions the unique Power of Rings. Whether worn daily or on special occasions, rings are the most common and evocative pieces of jewelry, wrote Rachel Church. Rings are very personal and embody symbolic meaning. They can be worn as protective talismans or
simply as beautiful, precious accessories. What, then, makes a ring so powerful, even in contemporary times? Of course, we cannot disregard our past if we are to understand why rings remain so important in our culture. From ancient Egypt to the twenty-first century, their long, rich history is intricate and fascinating. Rings endure as objects that have direct connections to our body language and serve as a reflection of our appearance and style. They may also recall memories of our loved ones and represent victories, and their vintage surfaces project unmistakable power.”
