Armen Eloyan at Timothy Taylor: Garden

SEEN was very taken with the huge paintings on display at Timothy Taylor’s Mayfair gallery. The huge space is well suited to Eloyan’s latest work ‘Garden’; a concept that contains and displays large-scale canvases and bronze sculptures.

Whatever the medium in which he works, Eloyan’s imagery is playful and cartoonish, though often with grim undertones. He draws on pop-culture references, which, though instantly recognisable as characters from tale and folklore, seem to hint at a deeper mystery.

A wolf and a bearded gnome-like man converse outside an idyllic cottage in one untitled picture. Are they friends or plotting a sinister act? The more everyday has its place here, like the sculpture Egg, which has an egg balancing precariously in its cup, implying that existential concerns are at play here, though Eloyan pulls back from taking himself too seriously. Perhaps he’s leaving that to the viewer’s response.
