FARZAD KOHAN: Stories of US

FARZAD KOHAN: Stories of US

RECEPTION FRIDAY MARCH 15, 2019, 7-9:30 PM

MARCH 15 - APRIL 12, 2019

Tufenkian Fine Arts is honored to present in the TFA Project Space a new body of work by Farzad Kohan, Stories of US

"Farzad affirms in the series Stories of US that 'all of US being the same yet different' to be 'a record of our everyday life in a way, making connections, making relationships and how we interact with each other, basically life as a form.' These small groups of borderless paintings, painted on circular wooden panels of two to three different sizes are an inspired attempt to create meaning that furthers his ideas and ideals to engender meaning.

These sublime spheres, perfectly floating before US, in pastels or deeply colored, are marked by a leathery patina; one that seems to have been observed in a distant planet or moon seen from earth, its hues vibrant and monochromatic, all different yet bound by similarities in size and texture, stationed in static caveats." 

Excepted from the essay Everyday...In the Absense of Words on the work of Farzad Kohan by Shaheen Merali, 2019.

REFRACTIONS BY KIREILYN BARBER

10/3/2018

“Refractions” presents a new body of work in the dedicated practice of painting for artist Gegam Kacherian. The series is both a continuation of the artist’s interest in subject matter and ruminations on existence and feeling, and a departure, visible in his investigations of media, the painting process and how meaning can be constructed and interpreted.

The new direction for the work had its inception at the Kaus Australis residency in Rotterdam, Holland, organized by curator and artist Carl Berg; an exchange exhibition between Dutch and US artists had also been planned. The James Turrell piece “Celestial Vault” is an earthwork on view in Den Haag, and was a focal point of the 2014 summer residency that Kacherian participated in. Situated near the dunes and edge of the North Sea, the Turrell work became a destination for the residency’s artists that summer.
