On the Healing Path from the Artist’s On the Path to Wellness Series – Sharing Love: Triptych 36″h x 156″w. Original Mixed Acrylic on Premium Quality Stretched Canvases.

This vibrant and mesmerizing painting is an homage to American abstract expressionism and a wild and free expression of color. The aesthetic is a mirror of the physical act of the artist painting. The large gestural brushstrokes recall the movements that Kazanjian must have made to create them. Energetic and free flowing, the bright, positive colors match the tempestuous motions of the artist’s hand, body and eye.

“On the Healing Path” celebrates color, and looks to connect with its audience on an emotional, physiological and spiritual level. The artist invites and delights in individual interpretations, stating that: ‘The unplanned friendly images that seem to appear from various viewing perspectives continue to amuse and delight me.

Roy Lichtenstein once advised Kazanjian to not ‘be afraid of adding structure and balance to anchor all that energy in your work.’ This influence can be felt in the thick navy blue and green swathes of color that work as compositional anchors to tie together the other gestural lines and emotive splatters of acrylic paint. These have been applied using large brushes and rollers, and their paths can be traced like a journey through each painting in the triptych.

We wanted to create some very affordable pieces of John R Kazanjian Art. The latest addition to the Accent Pieces Gallery is our Flavor Series of original mixed acrylic paints on 12″ x 12″ x 0.5″ stretched canvases. Use these fine art pieces where an accent would pick up a lackluster tight space such as kitchens and baths.  Click on the thumbnail images to view larger images that show the glorious details in each painting.

No. 2320. Film Strip Series: “Neighboring Opinions”.

No. 2320. Film Strip Series: “Neighboring Opinions”. Original Mixed Acrylic on stretched canvas 36″ x 60″ x 1.5″.

In “Neighboring Opinions”, I portray how neighborhoods or countries all deal with the same issues of life, hence the dark tones … the outpouring of color connotes how each assimilate their beliefs and cultures for survival, growth and daily life improvement.

Caucasian Carpet Series: No. 2316. “Flying Carpets”.

Last year I was experimenting with bringing some structure to my abstract expressionism. Having been fascinated with Caucasian Carpets for years, I employed the symmetry and palette of the Caucasian designs without having to tie 300-600 knots per square inch as my ancestors  did.

Time for Contemplation

By chance are you old enough to remember reading the Sunday newspaper color comics back during the 1950’s? There were different strips of course, but the back ground color washes were the same with a lot of black. Here is my interpretation.  Enjoy the evolution of the frames as you read from left to right.
