January 1, 2012
Love & Luxe is excited to add a spectacular new collection to the gallery from artist Lola Brooks. Lola’s fascination with the history of the “jewel” drives the conceptual content of her jewelry and her underlying interests in material and cultural hierarchies. She is currently a Visiting Associate Professor at RISD, and holds the rank of Master Lecturer at University of the Arts in Philadelphia where she has taught since 2001. Her work is in the collections of the Museum of Art and Design and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
