Ornamentum Gallery welcomes Tanel Veenre for the opening of BeforeAfter.
Based in Tallinn, Estonian jewelry artist Tanel Veenre is a romantic. Fairytales and rituals are often the themes, and his jewelry can be worn as mystic talismans as well as for adornment.
A passion for music (and coming from a family of artists and musicians) shows though in his use of violin bridges and tuning pegs as design elements in older works. This is a theme developed further in BeforeAfter, as wooden organ pipes form the material basis of his newest works—works that transform to performative pieces as a breath of air can enable the adornment to produce tone.
Veenre has held the position of Professor at the Estonian Arts Academy, where he continues to teach courses. Veenre’s works can be found in collections such as the Swiss National Museum, CODA Museum in Apeldoorn, NL, and the Estonian National Museum.
BeforeAfter is Tanel Veenre’s 4th solo exhibition at Ornamentum.
