Exhibit by Local LA Artist Anahid Boghosian Opens at Burbank Salon June 25 BURBANK–Wax Poetic salon & art gallery will feature painter Anahid Boghosian’s exhibit "Passages," which presents her abstract visions of torsos: collages of colors and conflicting emotions representing the person within. The exhibit will open at the Burbank salon/art gallery on Friday–June 25 and will continue through August 20–2004.
"I love to exploit our perception of sexuality–sensuality and the contradictions that it represents," says Boghosian–who is influenced by the style of the 1970s and 80s–her teachings at the Fashion Institute of Los Angeles and her Armenian heritage. "To explore these complexities and contradictions–I use organic material–such as wood–to emphasize the tug-of-war between a nurturing mother whose sexual being and multi-layered existence is not noticed by everyday society. I embrace the nobility of human imperfections with a unique vision inspired by my–your and our reality."
Established in 2000–Wax Poetic Salon gallery features new exhibits every two months. "It is important to me to be a part of the community–not just another beauty salon," says owner Kerry Hite. "Our guests are exposed to a wide variety of artistic styles inspiring unique conversation in the salon–as opposed to your usual beauty shop gossip. We are particularly thrilled to have Anahid’s work on display. Her use of color and the independent spirit of her work will be a welcome addition to our gallery."
The public is welcomed to join Boghosian on the opening night of her exhibition on Friday–June 25 at 8:00p.m. For more information–log onto www.waxpoeticsalon.com or call 818-843-9469.
