Until August 14 – Armenian Center For Contemporary Experimental Art
These works represent a concept of material and spiritual structures of crude materials and fine spiritual energies, manifested and non-manifested worlds, as well as a concept of correlation between earthly and spiritual values.
Space is born from a point, space unfolds in time, and time is condensed in-to material. This cycle is developed by a subsequent reverse process: material is destroyed in time, time is dissolved in space, and space rolls up into a point. Substance, time and space are crude and fine energies of the material. The point is the existing, the eternal super-fine spiritual energy – Spirit, the sublime beginning and sublime completion of everything – the Alpha and the Omega.

Based on the idea as the highest energy giving birth to everything and exist-ing in everything, this concept is represented in an artistic-creative form of development.
The light and color structure presented in the works bears an image of spiri-tual energy. Light and color as energy are represented not in a calm and pacified concept of stillness, but in a restlessly throbbing anxiety of being; they are full of creation and dynamics, generation and embodiment.
Eyes symbolize a path, depth and space, leading to the inner meaning of a work and the inner world of the beholder, for the sake of perceiving one’s own self and the truth of the essence of being, thus creating a spiritual connection, a dialogue, between the beholder and the work.
Photograph is the only art-form which is closely related to a specific place, a specific time, space and fact, as well as recording an event and creating history.
With this form of art I destruct at first glance seemingly firm foundations of such notions of the material world as material, time and space.
I tear them from presumed stability, and send them into eternal flow, fluidi-ty and transformation, the whirlpool of births and destructions, and the stream of the energy of being.
Thus the unsteadiness and the illusion of the manifested world – the Ma-terial one, as well as the fallacy of earthly values is revealed, and the spiritual values are moved forward as the primary, true, real, and firm values of existence.
