Leonardo Gallery is pleased to announce the Toronto gallery premiere exhibition of Armenia’s renowned painter Hagop Hagopian. It is presented in conjunction with a selection of most recent work by the gallery’s highly regarded painter Ilya Gefter.
This exhibition highlights Hagopian’s work from his later periods, featuring his signature unpopulated landscapes, animate mannequins and still life. Gefter’s opus predominantly reveals geometric vocabulary found within architectural and landscape motifs, as well as in his “classical” portraits. Difference and repetition, seen through refusal of idealization and the absence of popular, monolithic symbols of cultural identification is the canon that brings the work of these two artists together.
Lecture & Slide Presentation by Ilya Gefter: Thursday, September 20, 6-8 pm (Attendance by RSVP only: firstname.lastname@example.org, or 416.924.7296 – Please reply by September 15) This event is free.
