Moko Khachatryan Armenian, b. 1969

Moko Khachatryan's canvases have a meditative, confident, and strong quality, as bright and dark paint expands and drapes along the canvas with a sense of verticality. Her placement of color on the canvas speaks to her visionary dexterousness.

 

Khachatryan roots abstract art in the unconscious, unworldly, and spiritual realms. The artist asserts that “abstract art is not drawing or painting, it is a mentality, a lifestyle, and it is a thought process that is deep and philosophical.”
