ASTERE - SAMIR MAZER
This product is currently sold out.
Instigate the encounter of zellige and paper and witness the birth of a whole new universe. Samir Mazer opens a breach in the world of material to arouse infinite geometric trajectories. All lead back to the unpredictable shimmer of clay tile.
In the collection, the age-old handicraft of zellige has been reinvented, two fold. In a first composition, the artist combines, juxtaposes, refreshes and explores the balances and imbalances of shapes with an 11x11cm square matrix as the sole production base. Transposed on paper, his creation releases a new poetry, it conveys its Arab-Andalusian heritage in a vibrant creation, sometimes almost accidental, always fascinating.
Born in Morocco, Samir Mazer takes great elements of his origins into his creations. It is clear in revelation through small terracotta tile, omnipresent in the Arab-Andalusian heritage, zellige. The artist wields it endlessly in rhythmic compositions, expanding its possibilities, its radiance and sometimes expecting almost the impossible.
For Asteré, the artist-sculptor has transposed his chromatic and pictorial exercise onto walls. His creations are true ceramic membranes, which offer, even through paper, protrusions and irregularities on surfaces, and the incredible reflections that have moved us so greatly.
