An exhibition of Oil Paintings

Once upon a time, then more than twice within perception and then again  once upon the canvas, the artworks of Seyran Gasparyan embrace testimonies  of his life experience, the life he distinguishes or used to. They stage  scenes from folk tales, legends and myths, or  rom a peasant's, farmer's or  builder's position in everyday life.

What is fixed on the surface in Seyran's works is 'the atmosphere'. Colours  and shapes evoke figures suspended in their own right time and their own  worlds; you are able to perceive them wandering in their orbit; however,  they will not look at you directly in the eyes.

Seyran is an artist, who has a specific point of view, a worldview that is  generated from the values he was grown up with, and shaped within the  framework of a culture, which have a  lear definition of what is good and  what is bad - the Armenian culture.

In his artworks, we do not see a peasant, we see THE peasant. We do not see  a mother carrying her son, but rather we see THE mother carrying her son as  if he intends to depict the concept of motherhood; his inherited image and  concept of motherhood in this case.

The technique and the style he uses to express his story varies - it is not  persistent. By observing his works we notice traces of a cubist's, of a  fauvist's or (in his landscapes) of an impressionist's manners and modes.  He does not defend one style over the other; instead, he keeps on going  through them, and he employs them all with remarkable ability.

I would consider his approach similar to that of a constructor. By  constructing his time (making art) he constructs spaces inside his art,  brick by brick, line by line, stroke by stroke. You will not see an  inaccurate part in his pictures, neither unfinished nor bare sections in
those well-equilibrated compositions, in colour and in form. Once upon a  time, then more than twice within perception and then “constructed”
upon the canvas...

Winter Salon 2014

As part of their ongoing projects and exhibitions, Studio 104 proudly announce their first ‘Salon’ style exhibition entitled ‘Winter Salon 2014’. The idea behind this exhibition is to invite a relatively large number of artists, and invite them to exhibit one or two works each at a fixed price and no gallery commission on sold works. This supports the artists to sell at their normal studio prices while giving them the opportunity to exhibit in a gallery in Valletta during the festive season. 

The artists were given total freedom with regards to subject matter portrayed in their artwork as no theme was set for this exhibition, thus aiming to have an eclectic outcome of styles and subjects from so many different artists.

Participating artists:

Mario Agius, Victor Agius, Arthur Aquilina, Hazel Ashley, Ray Axiaq, Gabriella Azzopardi, Maria Borg, Alex Cachia, Carl Caruana, Emmanuel Caruana, Mariz Cassar, Nathalie Debono,
Arthur Dutton, Henry Falzon, Louise Fenech, Francis Galea, Nicolette Galea, Lara Manara, Franco Navarro, Lara Pace, Mario Sammut, Darren Tanti, Maria Tonna & Lewis Wirth

Opening hours:
Wednesday & Thursday 16:00 - 19:00
Friday & Saturday 11:30 - 19:00

Studio 104, Fine Art Space, Valletta
