GLENDALE—The Tufenkian Fine Arts will present ‘Vasken Brudian: Of Indelible Layers’ Artist reception on July 10 from 5 to 8 p.m. at 4220 San Fernando Road, Glendale. “Of Indelible Layers” is an exhibition created by Ardēan Center for Art Architecture and Design in Yerevan, Armenia, under the leadership of Vasken Brudian. The word “Ardēan” is the root word in classical Armenian (Grapar) of the word “ardiakan”, which means modern, or of relating to the present.
The art works include various image layers based on Armenian stone carvings, architectural ornaments, cross-stones along with the colors derived from the Armenian manuscripts. The word “Indelible” is an extract from Grigory of Narek’s “Book of Lamentations”, from which passages of prayers became part of the conceptual elements of the paintings.
The work is the culmination of a long investigative deliberation on presenting Armenian culture in a modern, distinctive language that also embodies our aspirations, ambitions, and the eagerness to present Armenia as a modern nation.
