About Anait Abramian
AnaÃ¯t Abramian is a graduate from the The Saint Petersburg State Art and Industry Academy, Alexander von Stieglitz (V.Mukhina) Russia She lives and works in Montreal, where she has been based for many years. One is first struck, in AnaÃ¯t Abramian's work, by the theatrical composition of the pictures and the rich colours that vibrate through her pictures. Poetry and playfulness coexist on the detours through the world where personae, with undefined faces, appear as timeless acrobats on life's stage. AnaÃ¯t's insatiable intellectual curiosity yields works, whose rich cross-cultural references defy stereotypes or simple decoding. The compositions, deliberately destructured with truncated dimensions, suggest hidden dramas in the sombre spaces of the works. Despite these shadowy areas, light always predominates, imparting a hopeful message. The palette of colours seduces with warm nuances and infinite cerulean tones. Precarious equilibrium across the chessboard of life - in these symbolic universes evoking festivity, music, literature as well as ephemeral success. AnaÃ¯t Abramian's art constitutes a perpetual poetic questioning on the labyrinths of life. If the characters of these universes seem to have emerged from another era, they, nonetheless, remain quite contemporary in their quest for a better world.
