Gabriel Orozco: 40th Year
Each ring is produced as an edition, with materials chosen to match three of Orozco’s most well-known works: the Samurai Trees, which feature a palette of red, blue, yellow and white; his Piñanona paintings made with burnished gold leaf, black and green; and The Eye of GO, a configuration of black circles against a white background. The materials approximate those colors as best as possible: red resin, camel bone – chosen for its long-lasting whiteness –, lapis lazuli, onyx and jade – all carefully set into the bezel and shoulders of the ring. The underside is engraved with the number of the edition and Orozco’s signature, as well as a unique hand-carved composition made up of circles variable in size, each one touching one or more of the other circles, to create clusters reminiscent of atoms or molecules.
