Child Sculpture by Elnaz Rafati

About

Child sculpture 01 by Elnaz Rafati Dimensions: H 20.3 x W 11.5 x D 12.7 cm Materials: clay I am an Iranian architect and artist living in NYC. After receiving my architectural engineering degree in Tehran, I moved to Chicago where I received an M.Arch from the UIC School of Architecture. Upon graduation in 2017, I took a job at Studio Joseph and a year later in 2018 I started working at Bjarke Ingels Group where I still work as an architectural designer. Since early childhood I have always been looking for mediums to express creativity and only in 2020, I found the perfect medium: clay. Having been stripped away from social engagements and left alone with my thoughts, I found solace in creating sculptures that connected me to a large audience. At first sight they are playful, blobby and squishy objects that invite you to explore them from different angles. Yet upon further contemplation they become oxymorons, dramatically challenging gravity and balance with a rough raw clay texture that compliments the smooth, abstract yet pseudo-referential curves. This growing collection consists of about 15 sculptures and 9 vases.

About the Maker

Galerie Philia Furniture

Galerie Philia is an international contemporary sculptural design and art gallery representing emerging and established designers and artists. The gallery is the brainchild of two brothers who share a lifetime passion for art, literature and philosophy. Their distinct academic background sets them apart from their peers, as it sees them following a rhizomatic and transcultural approach in the way they select works. This involves combining elements from multiple cultures in what becomes a network of harmoniously interconnected roots, ultimately revealing the beauty of each unique creation. The gallery’s non-hierarchical curation sits apart from the ephemerality of trends and focuses instead on the true aesthetic quality of the piece – alluring and timeless. Unlike others, Galerie Philia does not focus on a single style – whether minimalist, organic or raw – but rather embraces heterogeneity. The Galerie Philia takes pride in discovering new talents, providing them with multiple international platforms to showcase their latest creations. As well as propelling the newest generation of 21st century collectible design, Galerie Philia also works with internationally known design artists. Galerie Philia has a strong international presence, with galleries in Geneva, New York and Singapore. In addition to their permanent spaces, the gallery organizes temporary group exhibitions and artists residencies in first-class locations around the world.
