Das Sensible Chaos (Sensitive Chaos” was the phrase used by the philosopher Theodor Schwenk to denote the relationship between energy and form, to express the vital forces and currents which produce the shapes of each moment. Observing the pulse of nature with the eye of an artist he noted “streams” of air creasing the desert’s sands with wrinkles, or the ebb of the tide marking the shore with a network of veins…
As such Eozen Agopian’s paintings and paint- releifs are informed by a language of poetry where rhythm and form become one. Like connective tissues the “Cords” reflect the artist’s personal conduits for the flow of her private - and our collective-memory. They create the visual web of the canvas, which is painted, partially scorched, shorn and sewn, at times molded to swell beyond the frame, at others cut off to denote the void. Elsewhere they develop into fringed thread, a ribbon-like fabric that abstractly evokes the membranes, which develop and multiply to form a nourishing placenta.
Here the internal landscape of “l’art en tant qu’idee it l’art tand qu’action” is turbulent yet structured: visually rendered into a seeming chaos where order is disguised as randomness.
