As a part of the summer studio sale series, Bleicher/Golightly is featuring art from Arman and Argishti Musakhanyan, Carol Powell and Michael Chomick.
Carol Powell’s current work is an exploration of uncontrollable circumstances, the mixed media work is humorous, tragic and autobiographical. She draws from contemporary, folk, and commercial art as inspiration. Children’s books, Easter Indian paintings and textiles have also helped to form a style of her very own.
Born in Abovyan, Armenia, Argishti Musakhanyan was born in a family immersed in the arts. He explores themes of alienation and isolation, describing characters whose interactions are mediated through technology, bureaucracy or other power structures. Argishti is joined by the works of his brother, Arman, whose own work is the result of exploration and imagination, using expressive color and bold shapes.
Being a figurative artist, Michael Chomick has encompassed a variety of mediums such as, printmaking, mixed media clay sculpture, small to mural-sized oil paintings, acrylic/bas-relief paintings, ink or graphite drawings, and constructions with various objects; all the while maintaining a strong focus on a singular theme - Exploration of the "Human Condition".
