Tufenkian Fine Arts is pleased to present Serj Tankian: The Incandescent Pause, an exhibition featuring selected works by the artist Serj Tankian. The exhibition will run from Friday, July 2nd and will be on view through Friday, July 16th. We are thrilled to announce that this will be the artist’s first show with the gallery.

Influenced by the Russian Expressionist painter Wassily Kandinsky’s theories on color and synesthesia, Tankian explores the themes of movement, tone, dissonance, harmony, and chromatics to create his incredibly dynamic and expressive works. Synesthesia describes the production of a sense impression relating to one sense or part of the body by stimulation of another sense or part of the body. The relation between both our visual and auditory senses informs our interpretation of the artworks. The embedded musical score that accompanies each piece in the exhibition are accessed via Arloopa, a mobile application that utilizes optical recognition technology to allow users to listen to each painting by way of audio headsets.
