Over the last 40 years, Daniel Brush’s artistic voice has been evolving.  He began his path as a painter and his exhibitions made considerable waves in Modernist circles.  This form of expression was then challenged by a moment of enlightenment at the V&A in the early 1970’s which would see him drawn, and eventually lost, to the world of goldsmith.  Mr. Brush creates one-of-a-kind jewels and objets from precious gemstones and exotic space-age metals, making only a few pieces each year.  His work is found in public, private and royal collections, and he was honored with 30 year retrospective exhibition at the Smithsonian, Washington, D.C. in 1998, which was accompanied by a lavish monograph published by Harry N. Abrams, Inc.
