About Art Work

Jazeh Tabatabaei masterfully turns what basically lacks the quality of an artwork into sumptuous, solemn art. Tabatabaei’s world of strange sculptures are known through such works. There has been a thoughtful process in creation of his works. Useless, broken pieces that form the twosome sculpture are the invention of creative mind of the artist, a product of his efforts and curious scrutiny of scrap metal objects. Pieces that once were the beating heart of industrial machinery will reside forever in the skeleton of the smiling couple who are exhibiting love and affection in front of us. Creating such works, Jazeh demonstrates the thin line between art and non-art. Gentle appearance of Jazeh’s smiling sculptures makes you return their greeting and welcome them; a warm welcome to the ideal world of the artist in which a cold dispirited figure is turned into an exultant creature; a charming, walking creature denoting an earthly creator. This exultant creature encourages us to make jokes with Jazeh and congratulates the couple on their wedding. It was as though Jazeh, with his vivid mind, was the only one who could bring these amiable sculptures into our world.
