About Garri Makichyan

I am an architect. I also paint. And I think that you would not be interested to know where and how many exhibitions I had. A quite different thing is of interest, your impression of my work.

I came to a conclusion that our life is a kind of large scale Experiment. And what I paint is somewhat of a continuation of that Experiment, a small experiment inside the large one. In art, as in a fairy tale, the spectators wait that similar to Lewis Carroll, the artist will take them by the hand and lead them into the depth of the hallucinatory Rabbit Hole. The question is how deep is the spectator ready to go. Leonardo Da Vinci has been taking people by the hand and leading them to Mona Liza (Joconda) for already several centuries. A smile, tears, joy and anger... This is the mystery of creation. I am also a spectator when I look at the works of other artists. And if the work touches me I feel like a Fish that has been hooked. And that is the beginning of a new story. Any emotion felt by the spectator when he glances at a work of art is the highest praise for the artist and the beginning of a new life for the work of art. Any emotion except for indifference.
