Vera Arutyunyin's Abstract Expressionism
 
 
The Opening Reception for Vera Arutyunyan’s Abstract Expressionist exhibit of personal and moving images will be held at UU Santa Monica on Sunday, November 3, 2019 from 11:00 am until 12:30 pm. At the reception, you’ll be able to ask her about her journey that started in Armenia and has transformed into envisioning her art as expressions of emotional words to find spiritual and and self-fulfillment. Light snacks will be provided. The exhibit will be open every Sunday from 9:00 am until 12:00 noon and on weekdays by appointment through November 24th. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
 
 
Vera is an Abstract Expressionist with a flow of figurative expressions―all emotionally and spiritually charged. Painting is her inner outcry. Her unique bare hands technique of brave strokes is a clash of emotions―color-infused visions of action painting forever frozen in time. She feels she is possessed by many thousands (and more) moments when all her inner visions and emotions about the world and herself are crying out loud to come out and be heard – words of the soul in search of philosophical and existential answers of what lies deep within the human psyche, words of despair in a world in which we are strangely at home and yet lost at the same time, words of powerful love for life and spirituality, emotional words so natural and powerful that could only be expressed through paintings to be understood, to obtain identity and significance, to become securely existent.
 
Vera’s art has earned international acclaim. She has participated in a variety of solo and group shows, biennales, galleries and museums in the United State as well as in France, Italy, Belgium, Spain, Greece, Russia, Armenia, China, South Korea, Canada, Japan, Ireland, Switzerland and Monaco.
