For forty years, Aïda Kazarian has been building a painted work which manifests itself in paintings, some of which are in gold leaf, books, interventions in three-dimensional space in the form of painted rolls of various lengths.
Most of the time, his work is produced directly with her body: her fingers, without brush or tools. Her painting extends an ancient tradition; that of carpets. She retains from this experience the idea of repetition, and her writing, which follows the boustrophedon movement adopted by weavers. Both her parents were restorers of oriental rugs.
After studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels, where she taught, she began a career which led her to exhibit both in Europe and in North America.
Little by little, her way of painting is imposed, with her fingers, allowing herself to be permeated by the thousand-year-old tradition observed in the family workshop. Since the early 1990s, she regularly exhibits her abstract work. For ten years, we have observed a new direction in her work, which questions more and more methodically the Armenian memory that she carries within her.
