Armen Agop's avatar Armen Agop

Renowned for the graceful elegance of his sculptural forms and mastery of materials, Agop is most well known for creating intimate works intended to be examined from all points of view. Balance is essential to his sculpture. Foremost, it is the articulated balance between the strong linear elements that define edges and planes that are set against the undulating and sloping contours and volumes of the work. However, it is also the balance between the widest surface of the sculpture versus the narrow base which suggest circular, even rocking movement. "The ancient civilizations of Egypt and Italy have provided a backdrop for the development of my work. As Egypt was a good place for a sculptor to be born, Italy is a very good place for a sculptor to live. Each sculpture is ascetic in form and rich in spirituality, they are pure shapes, defined by strong lines where everything else is excluded; making us face only the essential."
