Past: Michael Azgour / Perceptualism
GF Contemporary invites you to an artist reception to meet painter Michael Azgour and view his new works, Friday, August 16th, from 5-7 p.m.
Although we live in a globalized world in which so much is standardized, the customs and values differ immensely from one country to the next. I am interested in developing a visual language that speaks to our current experience of exposure to and integration of new technology and the persistence of traditional values despite changing global trends. My work references moments of transition, the inevitability of change, and the uncertainty of memory. Together with a strong influence of art history and contemporary themes, my work is informed by a deep-rooted interest in social and perceptual psychology, a reverence for modernism and color theory, and my personal experience as an American living abroad in Eastern Europe.
Please join us on Friday, August 16th, from 5 to 7 p.m. at GF Contemporary, 707 Canyon Road, Santa Fe.
