Taher Chemirik’s love of nature and personal vision of the world inspire his works that are both poetic and structured, flamboyant and balanced. The multi-faceted artist imagines his creations as if they were statues. His jewellery is functional sculpture. From his theater times, Taher retains a sense of volume, of the spectacular. Labradorites with globular curves evoke planets, agates of flames, obsidians of ash, encrusted in the shimmering background of a metal.
Taher’s encounter with the stone directs the creation. He takes it as it is. Taher mixes with goldsmith precision plastics with precious or timeless materials such as brass, copper. The man admits a taste for mishaps: imperfection moves him. So he dents the metal, chooses his stones for the beauty of their flaw: an unexpected encrustation, a crack, an incongruous outline. And that appeals to collectors.
