pendant, medicine cast in acrylic, nylon wire

Drawer’s Delight: (a Noten-ism) The excitement upon finding something cherished hidden away and forgotten in the back of a drawer.

 

Ornamentum is thrilled to present Ted Noten under the exhibition banner Drawer’s Delight - 3 decades of new and unearthed treasures.  Stunning new sculptures in acrylic; Noten's iconic handbag forms and "Drawers" build narratives from the items encased within, together with wearable works from the artist's personal collection- treasures spanning almost 30 years, unearthed by Noten during a recent move from his studio of 25 years with specific works picked by Laura Lapachin and Stefan Friedemann of Ornamentum.  The selection represents key positions from Noten's artistic development. Each example was chosen as a marker of an important chapter in his personal narrative.

In an experience akin to finding lost treasure, the artist was reunited with many works from his personal collection, unpacked during the fore-mentioned studio move.  With a solo gallery exhibition already in planning, Ornamentum seized this opportunity to use the show to ‘tell the story of Ted Noten’.
