DESCRIPTION

LOOK CLOSER

The play of what is real and what is not is an important part of his work both in painting and clay. He use’s realism to convey importance and familiarity to his subjects. Kevork’s compositions are simple, sparse and void of all that is unnecessary; constructed realities which would not normally exist, where imperfect is perfect, imbalance is balance, and disorder is order.

” I design with that in mind – I am a graphic designer by trade – so design and color play an important role in my process”. 

Kevork  focus’s  mostly on single dominant subjects, everyday objects, where the mundane becomes heroic, projecting details forward – larger than life – seducing the viewer to see things commonly overlooked.

“I Incorporate images into the natural structure of my subjects to look closer at the subtle worlds within worlds – sometimes obvious and sometimes hidden”.
