Henrik Abedian, The Business of Regret

Loading...

series statement

How do you communicate what it's like growing up in a country run down with war?  Some revel in the chaos, but Henrik could never understand the fascination with violence.  Over the years, his time living in Europe and the United States exposed Henrik to a wide variety of individuals with diverse ideas concerning tools of violence.  He has transformed these tools into something familiar with the bright and playful colors characteristic of his work.  Adding porcelain finishes and delicate floral patterns evoke a sense of delicacy, robbing the items of their function and their menace.  Through this process, he discovered a beauty and craftsmanship that he previously overlooked.  Henrik hopes to communicate his optimism for a future less vulnerable to acts of violence.
