Body from Egg

Michael Izrael Galmer



34” x 24”

Gift of the artist: 2018.0006

After creating designs for top American silver retailers, such as Gorham and Tiffany, and developing his own extensive lines of luxury home goods and jewelry, Galmer has transitioned to sculptural works of silver. These art forms feature triumphal narratives over adversity that Galmer has experienced as a Russian immigrant to the U.S. and with which the artist identifies through his Jewish ancestry.
