Eiman Rezaei - Still Life
I am continuously inspired by the beginnings and the basics. The beginning, being the formless inspiration of what will ultimately take shape and the basics as the minimal framework to exhibit that initial spark. An idea is following a gesture that comes to mind, a movement in space, which I attempt to materialize and acknowledge, is often and ultimately fleeting.
Still Life is an exploration of jewelry as a middle space separating curiosity and discovery – a moment in which a sense of unfolding establishes a bond between the object and the wearer. The pieces require an exploration for one to feel their way through the obscurity of the tabletop object, into the familiarity of a worn piece.
There is a stillness that resides in a piece of jewelry disguised as an independent and autonomous object in space. The moment at which an object transforms into jewelry is the “life” activated by its interaction with the wearer and the intention to be worn.
