Life Journeys of Horizontal Travel: Vachagan Narazayan's "Shapito" on view at the Blairsden Mansion
Fine Art & Design exhibition.
Vachagan Narazyan, (b. 1957), Ukraine
Narazyan's epic and intimate paintings are arguably among the most important works to surface and still develop from the repression of the former Soviet Union. With a style blending Old World images with futuristic visions, the artist creates a world of mystery and enchantment for the viewer to explore. Born in Kislovodsk, Russia, and currently residing in the Ukraine, Narazyan graduated from the Kharkiv Art Institute and developed a style underground—now coined "Romantic Fantasy"—as part of the historical Non-Conformist Art movement. In these works, the ladder suggests the vertical journey of travel that is more mental, spiritual and intellectual. Narazyan explores the fantasy and mystery that go hand-in-hand with the theme of shapito—a constantly moving circus. This composition of a tent surrounded by figures is part of Narazyan's "Absurd Travel" series, an ongoing subject for the artist.
