Armen Eloyan

22 September - 24 October 2020 London
Armen Eloyan (b. 1966) explores the absurd in his experimental and expressionistic paintings, which are imbued with the pathos and black humour characteristic of the artist’s sardonic outlook. Representing a new foray into pure abstraction for the artist, his new series is suffused with an underlying sense of existential anxiety and chaos intrinsic to the current moment.

Created during the course of the pandemic in Zurich, Switzerland, his new series is divided between three abstract and three figurative works. Derived from a single series of comic drawings, all six paintings are united by the same rapid, chaotic brushstrokes marking each surface.
