Born to an Armenian family, Sharis Garabedian grew up and was educated in many different geographical areas in Middle East, Europe and Unites States of America. Hence, she absorbed multiple influences that play a major role in her art.
Sharis is a multi talented artist, who successfully expresses herself through various media, from photography to ink on paper.
The exhibition Meditative Imprint focuses on her drawings. The artist repetitively uses geometrical and angular shapes to create intricate patterns. With this spontaneous unplanned expression, Sharis reaches another level of consciousness. Almost a form of intuitive meditation, her drawings have naturally demonstrated themselves on a multitude of surfaces, be it paper, canvas, silk or obsidian stone.
Sharis’ work is in the collection of Yerevan Modern Art Museum and the National Gallery of Armenia. She has many private collectors around the world.
