Gor Avetisyan

CAREER OBJECTIVE

Since the beginning of his career Gor was fascinated by the traditional Armenian carpet making techniques and traditional craftsmen works.

So these, as well as the dramatic sense for form and colors presented by Martiros Saryan, the most known Armenian landscape painter, influenced and transformed his expression of art - filling it with of sun and energy.

The hand of a sculptor is apparent in the work of Gor Avetisyan, in the sense that it is possible to discern in each of his canvases the spirit of the game; a dialogue, a balance between emptiness and plenitude, matter and nothingness.

Personal experience and even the history regain imagery in his paintings - through the application of old family photos, extracts from letters, former paperwork and objects - at the same time showing the sign of an irreversible loss of real sense of living experienced by the modern man.

The constant quest for the meaning of dialogue, silence, history, love, memories, happiness, dynamism – these you can find in Gor Avetisyan’s impressive work.
