Aazam Irilian

My paintings are the visual memories from my surroundings, as well as from my cultural experiences and belief. I try to capture the impression of what I see and what I feel—painting the undercurrent and the core of what seems to be visible.

I start every painting in a stage of not knowing. In the process I explore unlimited options that are presented—uncovering images that need to surface. Sometimes a painting emerges quickly and other times after many layers and of paint. The result often reveals something about myself that I initially might not have intended.
