Sam Grigorian – Nackt (Naked)

BY Anna Pappas Gallery | 23-Apr-2013
Sam Grigorian’s Armenian roots are clearly manifested in his art, especially through his special relationship to paper. A master in his technique, working on both large and small scale projects, Grigorian uses parchment and recyclable materials to create his collage artworks. Fascinated by the life of these papers, Grigorian features the natural beauty of his materials by exposing their rips, marks and frayed textures; the very traces of their original use. Grigorian’s method is intimate and unique, building upon these tactile materials by overlapping layers, tearing, folding and staining to enhance the papers imperfections and reveal its innate artistry. In his minimalist décollages, Grigorian creates compositions that at once pose an air of chance and disarray yet emit a sense of refinement and balance. Nackt, Grigorian’s fourth solo exhibition at Anna Pappas Gallery, will present a series of large and small scale works on paper.

As the eye follows through the painting, there is a sense of imminent energy and exciting tension which allows one’s own imagination the freedom to play.
