Eozen Agopian's paintings of the past seven years have continuously grown in both ambition and complexity of composition. Her increasing use of passages of grid-like, “all over ”, compositional structure, often contrasted with smaller or larger areas of interlocking, shard like and/or curvilinear forms produces an arresting – and often virtuosic – dialogue between the two contrasting vocabularies.
Wedded to this ongoing investigation is her special gift for combining in an individual work passages limited to a white-grey-black (or black and white) palette with abutting areas of polychrome – effecting
a confrontation, one could state, of the ascetic and the sumptuous.
Her growing ability to fully orchestrate these two seeming dichotomies within an individual work produces that which the artist herself terms “continuity and interruption”- considering that one of the defining characteristic at present of her work as a painter.
