Heads Up

gallerieparisblogI was wandering down the rue du Mont Thabor in the 1st Arrondissement, which is one of my favorite Paris streets, when my eye was caught by this fetching window of skulls. I was taken with the skulls and walked into the Galerie 13 Jeannette Mariana to see what I could discover about the bony sculptures and the artist who crafted them. The artist, Yahel Chirinian, is French-born, part Tunisian Jew, part Armenian and the rest of her is WHOLLY Indian in soul and spirit. She lives, imagines & creates at her heavenly abode in Goa, India, that is filled to the brim with her creations. skullstheparisblogdotcomShe has done exhibitions and shows in Bombay, Los Angeles, London, Milan, Delhi, Qatar, Tokyo, Brussels and now Paris at the Galerie 13 Jeannette Mariani. In the last 10 years, Yahel Chirinian has created and continues to create mirror installations and sculptures–in between fine and Pop, conceptual, profane, and sacral. Much of her work has been commissioned to customers and private collectors that spread across India, Lebanon, Italy, California, New York, and Paris. “Energies and Elements remain my greatest inspiration. yahel-chirinianThe amazing quality of light and the brightest of colors inspire creations in its complete synergy. Mirror sculptures choreograph daily life through reflections and light” says Yahel. When the light hits these extraordinary skulls, it explodes across the ceiling and walls like a disco ball–a reflection of the surrounding milieu and those of us looking into these light- and color-cracked skulls.
