About

Paradise Bird, 24x36 inches, mixed media on wood panel. Signed lower right, artist certificate is included. Mixed media photographs inspired by subjects on boarded-up construction sites mostly from downtown Los Angeles where all the elements of light, color and design found in formal art, but existing only for a short time before eroding entirely. Transitions that so powerfully evoke the slide from order to chaos - like life itself! Edgarian first takes a photograph, and then makes digital changes to it. He then uses a process called emulsion transfer to place the digitally prepared image on paper, wood or other substances. First, the files are printed on a transparency film. The ink on this film gets released through a certain chemical to whatever substrate, paper, wood, etc., that you choose, so that the image is now on that object. Edgarian then puts paint, water colors, soft pastels, acrylic, dry lines or chalk on the paper or wood to emphasize the lines or color and give it a bolder, more lively look than just a flat photograph. He said that this gives the image a little more texture, and added, “That is why I don’t frame my work—because I don’t want anything touching it. I want to have that connection between the photo and the viewers, so they can see the little details and the texture created by this transfer and the stuff I add to it.”
