Assembly of Ideas and Colors
Paintings by Raffi Kodjian
September 1 - October 29, 2016
Raffi Kodjian, a resident of Ashland, will exhibit his paintings in the Meeting Room Gallery for the months of September and October.
Originally trained as an architect, the precision that one expects in an architect is evident in Kodjian’s paintings. The paintings are in no way architectural renderings, but are rather enhanced by an underlying humor.
Kodjian says of his work: What is reality and what is fantasy? This is the fascinating dilemma that I express in my art, with humor, gusto, and frivolity. Taking an ordinary object, I try to manipulate it to express different meaning and interpretations. My goal is to make people stop, think and use their imagination. I want people to say, “What is he thinking?” Respectful of all genres and art expressions, I am inspired and influenced by the masters as well as by nature and daily life.
The exhibition will be on view in the Library Meeting Room Gallery through October 29.
On October 8 from 1-4 p.m. Raffi Kodjian will hold an artist’s reception at the library. Mr. Kodjian will be available to speak with viewers about his art, how he works and the ideas that motivate his work.
Exhibitions are free and handicapped accessible. Exhibitions in the library meeting room are available for viewing whenever the library is open and the room is not in use for a meeting. Please check the library Events Calendar for availability.
