Statement

January P Garabedian

 

January Garabedian lives and works in Santa Monica. A resident since the age of 13, she attended Santa Monica schools through Santa Monica College.  Her father introduced her to art at a very young age.  They would often be found in a corner of the house, painting a still life set up by her dad.

During the 1980's she worked with a residential architect designing, building and installing stained glass windows, broken tile and ceramic counter tops, and other residential decorative appointments. Before settling into her current mixed media pieces, January explored a number of media including; serigraphs, color pencils, oil and acrylic, stained/leaded glass, and broken tile ceramics. The many influences of these processes can be seen in her latest series. Some of her art pieces are a part of corporate and private collections.

“My art is multi-layered.  The first layer is typically cardboard from decomposed cracker or cereal boxes. From there I build layers of color and textures with hand made papers, tissue paper and pieces of hand painted torn canvas.  Nail heads, threads, magazine pictures and candy wrapper foils are some of the items incorporated in my art. Glazes transform into planes of color or deep shadows. Having a collection of these diverse items, allow me to revolutionize these unique and discarded items— giving them a new story to tell. ” – January Garabedian. 

Her education is on going and presently she devotes most of her time in mixed media.
