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.
