Doris Betz 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.

Betz, recipient of the Herbert Hofmann Prize and the Bavarian State Prize, once studied under Otto K├╝nzli at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. She now presents a selection of her jewellery works together with drawings from 2009 to 2016 for the very first time.
