Ex Soviet Tale (Creativity is a resistance)


24 November 2011 31 January 2012

This exhibition is the first in a series of exhibitions that profile new work by prominent artists working in Armenia. Sarkis's work will also be featured at Christie's International Charity Auction of Modern and Contemporary Art on Friday 9th December 2011 at 7pm.

Sarkis's work is full of layered meanings, built up from the richly worked canvases." Sarkis mixes stencil with brushstrokes perse, stains of liquefied oil, and its thick viscous layers - no holds barred. The result is a painting that is alive and vibrant".The paintings are full of characters that interact and play within narratives that shift between different cultures and times.
