New Hampshire’s Varujan Boghosian (b. 1926) has created a singular niche for himself in the contemporary art world. His work challenges the viewer to look at common objects in new ways by presenting them in unique contexts. Boghosian takes on universal themes such as love and death, and success and failure, often through the lens of mythology. A master draftsman, watercolorist and sculptor of found objects, he creates works of art that are often thought-provoking or subtly humorous. This exhibition draws primarily from the artist’s collection, presenting 60 works of art that range from early, abstract prints to the present day.
This exhibition is sponsored by the Jack and Dorothy Byrne Foundation.
