Energies and Elements are Yahel’s greatest source of inspiration and the nobility of the mirror has always been her preference for material, "with its feel, its dance and subtle play with light". It took years of research and preparation – natural pigments experimenting, coloring, cutting, gluing, pressing, baking - to reveal to the artist, the mirror's "magical, transparent, shiny and fluid possibilities". Yahel's designs are a synergy of creativity, traditional and organic materials, meticulous production and the unrivalled energy resulting from reflections and light.
Each of Yahel's creations is painstakingly crafted by hand at the Monsoon Heritage, using single pieces of local natural and eco-friendly raw materials that are gradually cut and polished to sculpt singular art pieces designed to inspire your life.
Yahel Chirinian, is globally celebrated French artist and sculptor; and she designs at Monsoon Heritage studio art pieces and installations that create atmosphere and experience as inspirational lifestyle, as place to dream...also providing what objects should provide, an oasis of serenity.
"I consider myself not so much an artist, but an artisan in a pursuit of an aesthetic that is my own, which sees something that cannot be seen, but brings into visible existence happiness, emotions or even a touch of love. The connection between energies and art is not only an attractive concept, but a vital part of my work. I have always loved the idea that human beings have contact with their surroundings on various different levels. I love working with mirror…it’s not a selfish mirror, it’s a mirror which reflects "l'autre".
“India opens for me enough thinking space to re-imagine all sorts of parallel new art worlds. A kind of counter-place that is outside other places but that also includes them. In today's art world it is necessary to find new ways to convey meaning and create experience. My work is about experiment."
“I like my creations to provoke emotions. they appropriate a place where another piece cannot be. We miss them if they disappear; because of their absence ...everything else has changed! more than décor their function is to reveal."
