Im Anune Hayastan e (Etching)

(MY NAME IS ARMENIA)
Solar plate Etching on Hahnemuhle 300gsm

 

 

ALTERED AND APPROPRIATED IMAGES OF ARMENIAN WOMEN IN TRADITIONAL COSTUME, READILY AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET, FORM PART OF MY ‘DIGITAL’ EXPLORATION TO FIND MORE ABOUT WHAT IT MEANS TO BE ARMENIAN.

 

MY INTRODUCED PATTERNED OVERLAYS, ARE REMINISCENT OF THE RUGS THAT SO FAMOUSLY COME FROM THE AREAS WHERE MY ANCESTORS FLED IN 1915 – KHARPERT, OTTOMAN TURKEY.

 

CONCEALED, OBSCURED, FRAGMENTED, AND DIGITALLY ARTIFACTED – A LOT CAN BE LOST IN THE TRANSLATION.
