Customised : a survey of jewellery
Arts Other Print (2009)
  • Peter Deckers
Abstract
"Customised" is a survey of work by Dutch born Peter Deckers. It coincides with the 20th anniversary of his emigration to New Zealand. Jewellery is his first love and he artfully exploits its historical assoications with status and value. Thematically his work is an articulation of the ideas and questions that dominate his life. Environmental concerns, conflict, freedom, perception, heritage, value and identity are recurring subjects for Peter as is corruption on all its levels including the corruption of language. Peter Deckers is an immigrant outsider. His personal sense of displacement often leads him to take a global view. His work speaks perfectly for itself on a myriad of levels. Julia Nevett - foreward
