Tanel Veenre turns jewellery made from seahorses into playful, poetic and dramatic compositions. He sees seahorses as ballerinas on a stage who can create incredible ornaments just with their bodies. Tanel is also interested in masks. Masks which can conceal yet also reveal something essential, fundamental, even animal. He likes to present rawness in a delicate fashion, clothing this in a vulnerable shell. Tanel’s work is clearly human oriented. He addresses psychological subjects and mainly seeks out for inner sources, playing with impulse and intellect, finding the animal beyond the animus.
