works on paper installation

Chicago artist Jackie Kazarian’s visually challenging and kinetic images often refer to the conditions of transformation. In this exhibition of new paintings and works on paper, self-doubt and disorientation play out in restless landscapes that offer only temporary resolutions.

Teetering between abstraction and figuration, the works use a painting process that includes drawing, squeegeeing, stamping, and screen-printing. Personal notes and doodles are integrated with references to art historic painting and nostalgic views of Chicago's landscape and architecture. 

Jackie Kazarian creates paintings, drawings and wallpaper installations and has exhibited in Chicago, New York, Miami, Armenia, and Japan. Her videos and installations have been used in performances by Chicago-based dance companies The Seldoms and The 58 Group. Kazarian has received public art commissions from the U.S. Embassy and the City of Chicago. She is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (MFA) and Duke University (BS). In 2008, she received a fellowship from the Ellen Stone Belic Institute for the Study of Women and Gender in the Arts and Media at Columbia College Chicago.
