Press Release

The Garden of Heavenly and Earthly Delights.

 

I wish to explore beyond reason, to search for the human core hidden beneath the thick lacquer of culture.  Ecstatic experiences as the doorway to the animal side of man.  In my research I have explored both religious and sexual ecstacy, elaborate feelings of losing the self within pleasure.  I have followed baroque ideas of how art should communicate with direct emotional involvement.  These are my allegories, projecting sensual power, fulfilling utopias of spiritual and physical pleasure.

 

T.V. 2018

 

 

Residing in Talinn, Estonia, The Garden of Heavenly & Earthly Delights is Tanel Veenre's 3rd solo exhibition with Ornamentum.
