Abstract

A series of original art works inspired by the forms of Armenian letterforms (originally designed as typefaces by Puzzovio). Exhibited in the National Gallery of Armenia, Yerevan on 8–25th October 2005 by invitation from the Armenian Ministry of Culture and Youth Affairs. (This is Armenia’s most prestigious venue for exhibitions). The works exhibited were a development of the earlier ‘Mesrob and Yacob’ exhibition. The exhibition in The National Gallery in Yerevan was part of the country’s 1600 years of the Armenian alphabet anniversary celebrations, beginning on the Armenian ‘Literacy Day’ – 8 October 2005, when the exhibition opening was televised on 2 Armenian national television channels. It consisted of a series of twenty-four framed experimental works that explored the aesthetic qualities of some of the Armenian letterforms in a purely abstract way, creating tactile compositions using traditional craft methods employed by designers prior to the advent of computer technology. Media: ink, gouache paint, hand-made cartridge paper. The pieces are experiments, monochrome works based on the letterforms from Carolyn’s own design for display fonts for the Armenian alphabet. They feature interplay of form and counter form and experiments with media and layering of images. Digest of evidence: catalogue: ISBN99941-2-007-7; invitations to exhibition opening; photographs/video on CD-ROM. Due to the attention this exhibition received in the Armenian diaspora, selected works were later digitised and sent electronically for an exhibition of international artists’ work, by invitation from Edik Boghosian the curator of the ‘Pharos’ Graphic design exhibition held at the Tehran Artist’s Forum, Morteza Momayez Gallery, Iran, 14–19 July 2007. Digest of evidence: email invitation to exhibit; CD-Rom of photographs of the exhibition venue and the work on display.
