Arthur Sarkissian Solo Exhibit Opens in LA Gallery

16:27 • 12.03.10



A solo exhibit of works by Gyumri-born, Armenian artist Arthur Sarkissian will be on display at Gallery 1927 in Los Angeles, California, from March 11 to April 1. The exhibit, curated by Caroline Tufenkian, launced with an early evening reception on March 11.

Sarkissian works in abstract art as a statement of post-soviet freedom of expression. According to Critics’ Forum report by Tamar Sinanian and Taleen Tertzakian, he said in 2005, "My approach to painting developed from the desire to free myself from Socialist Realism. Abstract thought was the means of free expression. I have never given up and always experimented. So, now there are no boundaries for me; I create freely and at any desired moment I can return to abstract art, or incorporate several styles."

His canvases combine painting and silkscreen printing, incorporating text, photographs, signs, architectural images and extracts from other paintings, fusing oil paint with found ephemera.
