Amy Sarkisian | Opening

Amy Sarkisian | American Gag
April 16 - May 14, 2011
Opening Reception: April 16th 6-9 pm

WPA is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new work by Amy Sarkisian. Sarkisian's new sculptures present an iconic statement about the perverted, maligned and marginal in all of us.

This body of work is a combination of drawing and sculpture, which are my two default modes of working. I'm attracted to drawing because of its economy and it balances my sculptural practice, which tends to be more complex. American Gag has become an exercise to resolve my drawings while at the same time not abandoning my first love that is sculpture.

Amy Sarkisian lives and works in Los Angeles. She has had solo exhibitions at Atelier Cardenas Bellanger and Galerie Carlos Cardenas in Paris, Suzanne Vielmetter and Sister in Los Angeles, Marella Arte Contemporanea in Milan. This summer she will be included in an exhibition at Wolverhampton Art Gallery in England. Amy Sarkisian ran the project space, Studio 870, in the late 1990s and is the newest member of WPA.
