EOZEN AGOPIAN - I was getting ready to leave
Eozen Agopian is an artist of Armenian descent born in Athens, Greece. She has received a Master of Fine Arts degree from Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, N.Y., (1994), a Bachelor of Fine Arts, (magna cum laude) from Hunter College, N.Y., (1989), and an Associate Degree in Graphic Design from F.I.T, N.Y., (1987). She has exhibited her work in numerous solo and group shows in public and private venues in the United States, Greece, France, Russia, Italy, Germany and China.
In her work, she incorporates techniques of drawing, painting, sewing and weaving. She creates visual parallels between rational and cosmological worlds through processes of constructing and deconstructing, layering and erasing, scraping and marking, unraveling and reconnecting. Through a visual vocabulary that is purely abstract, using forms, color, and texture she assembles images that involve the senses, express emotion and communicate memories of loss and dislocation.
Her work belongs to many private and public collections in Europe and USA.
