Pal Kepenyes Brutalist Silver and Bronze Necklace

US$1,800

About

Brutalist nickel brass necklace with silver plated bronze pendant by Pal Kepenyes. The nickel silver collar shows a bone-shaped design. The silver plated bronze round pendant shows bas-relief spirals, atomic designs and an unreadable inscription. A sculptor from Hungary who was nationalized Mexican, Pal Kepenyes (1926 - 2021) resided in Acapulco where he has a studio. In his sculptures we can appreciate romantic, ludic and social representations of history, which is told by juxtaposed metals and with important geometric, mechanical or multiform compositions out of the ordinary.
