Untitled, 1964, Liquitex, 48″ x 48″

Edward Avesisian

(b. 1936) Edward Avedisian in his painting makes use of strategically placed concentric circles placed in a larger field of opaque color. Their pictographic quality, combined with the ochre field it is placed upon, call to mind symbolic markings on the African masks of Burkina Faso.
