Fresh Faces in Art: Eight LA Artists You Should Know

An electrified intervention of objects, lines and lights position syncopated exposures in the stories that inform our abstracted lives, whether these be fiction, fieldwork experiences, cultural myths, or disciplined practices of anthropology itself. Farrah Karapetian’s photograms are possibilities in formulating abstractions, in their shadows and reflections by strategic use of “constructed negatives,” questioning imbricated moments of history, memory, truth, language, architecture, and music. Karapetian’s “negatives” inscribe themselves onto chromogenic luster with intent to target the experimentation of color voltage cross-determined with luminous flux emitted in solid angles from a point source equivalent to one candle intensity.
