With these new works, Ambarzumjan wanted to turn his focus away from urban scenes and towards natural landscapes, while still highlighting our influence on them, whether in the past, present or future. As with previous works in the series, he wanted to emphasise how diverse and unpredictable life is and how we can find parallels in the wildest differences.
Ambarzumjan was also excited to experiment more with whimsical elements and surreal compositions with bigger and bolder, textural brush strokes, conveying a sense of movement in the work. To make these contrasting scenes coexist in one single composition, he tried to find similarities between them, bridges that would connect light and darkness, life and death, warmth and coldness, creating a space where extremes can meet and intersect without the control of time.
David Ambarzumjan is an artist based in Munich, Germany. His art combines abstract and surrealistic elements to express his fascination for nature in all its diversity and unpredictability. His works can be found in private collections and exhibitions all around the world.
