The strik­ing col­ors found in two works by Ger­man Ex­pres­sion­ist Ernst Lud­wig Kirch­ner, the paint­ing “Two Nudes in a Room” (1914) and an un­ti­tled woodcut block print (1919-23), in­spired a suite of painted and enam­eled rings by L.A.-based jew­elry de­signer Lena Wald.

Most are in the shape of the tra­di­tional sym­bols rep­re­sent­ing male and fe­male, but the stand­out de­sign of the as­sort­ment are the rings bear­ing the word “un­ti­tled,” a clever ref­er­ence that could ap­ply just as eas­ily to the ti­tle of Kirch­ner’s block print as to the no­tion of gen­der flu­id­ity.
