Sarkis Hamalbashian

Sarkis was born in Gyumri and lives and works in the capital Yerevan. His neo-expressionist style incorporates a compendium of different modes of representation with a mix of abstract streaks and drips of oil paint, carefully stenciled outlines, delicate drawings and photographs depicting a world in turmoil. Images cohere formally, seeming to imply narrative, but then unravel and slip away as though half-remembered in a dream proving as fallible as any system by which we attempt to structure our existence. He has had solo exhibitions in London, Basel and Paris and has participated in group exhibitions in Russia, Germany, Finland and the USA. His works can be found in museums and private collections.
