Doris Betz (b. 1960) is devoted to exploring linear form in her work. In jewellery objects and drawings she fathoms the depths of the potential of the line and the possibilities of the material silver, which she contorts, turns, rolls and turns again, finally lacquering, oxidising or patinating with a flame. Unforeseen, fragile-looking, poetic formations emerge from overlaps, knots and layers, which render visible the relationship to a vegetal language of natural forms – a source of inspiration for the artist.
