Bárbara García

Born in Madrid, Bárbara García is a multidisciplinary jewelry artist whose work creates a game for its spectators and wearers, moving among duality, opposed concepts, and contradictions. Contradiction is inherent in García’s use of jewelry as a canvas to reflect on the ferocity and complexity of our world. She makes pieces that feed on the prejudices and clichés that have hindered the development of jewelry as an artistic language, challenging the medium’s marginalization as an artistic practice in order to give visibility to the social issues that have throughout history endured a similar exclusion. Her work is characterized by a balance between concept and shape, and her collections speak of evil through beauty, of abstractions through material, of the invisible through our skin.
