tidbit of the day – tanel veenre

The following is an excerpt from an artist statement made my Tanel Veenre (taken from Klimt02). 

A beautiful piece of jewelry is exciting. Excitement is a quality that comes into being upon collapse of the quantifiable and measurable into the inexplicable and personal. Fleeing from gold-edged emptiness binds the artist’s soul with the thing being created. It’s all somehow wordlessly conspiratorial. Artist and jewelry become witnesses to a crime in which they are both complicit. 

Anxiety may contain embarrassment and brazenness, mockery levelled at the opinion of the court.

A talented jeweller says: The quality of the jewel is in its intellectuality. For an artist the jewel is something very personal through with he can express his concerns, feelings, idea.
