Armen Kojoyian


Like an ancient visual river feeding my imagination, my affinity for non-western cultural symbols and organic artifacts of the natural world is the driving force behind my work. By restructuring these graphic languages, I unlock the innate energy of these symbols in organic abstraction igniting the subconscious. My art making process is of the moment and not premeditated with numerous sketching phases. I act solely as a conduit not a manipulator of the imagery flow. Form and color force themselves magically on to the surfaces which I work. I use a variety of oil bars, oil pastels, pastels, oil paint, and various marking implements as the materials for my work. I compose this media mostly by finger-tips, brushes, and rags while using thinners, and glazing mediums creating painterly texture.
