EXHIBITION

GEGHAM ABRAHAMYAN

Resonance

May 19 2022 – July 30 2022

NYB Gallery is proud to present The Resonance, the seminal contemporary sculpture series of world-renowned artist Gegham Abrahamyan.

Gegham is an internationally acclaimed, multiple-award-winning sculptor. His works include larger pieces well-suited for public spaces and art performances, as well as medium-scale works ideal for galleries and museums. Gegham creates sculptures from a variety of materials, including bronze, stone, metal, wood, and glass.

The Resonance symbolizes incremental transformation — a vast change sparked by one individual. Each work consists of several hundred symmetrical and regularly developing geometric forms. In the center is a human being within a square or a circle. When humans push their hand out of the shape they occupy, then the resonance begins. What began as the smallest silhouette of change transcends its initial volume over time, and ultimately changes a reality that had seemed to be eternal. This series is about people, Gegham tells us. It represents the idea that when a person really wants to take action and takes action consistently without being lazy about it, they can revolutionize their inner world, then later, the outer world in which they live.

Gegham’s work has been featured in numerous personal and group exhibitions and installations around the world, including in France, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Moscow, Georgia, Armenia, and the U.S. In 2020, his sculpture “Chosen” was awarded the Bronze Medal and John Cavanaugh Memorial Prize by the National Sculpture Society in New York, NY. He is an elected member of the same, as well as a member of the Artists’ Union of Armenia. His sculptures are highly valued by art critics, art professionals, and are included in private collections. He currently lives and works in Seattle, WA.

The Resonance will be open for viewing from May 19th - July 30th at NYB Gallery in Kirkland, WA.
