Osheen Harruthoonyan’s artworks strive to represent the transient nature of time, space and memory he experienced as a young refugee escaping the Iran-Iraq war. The analog process creates a permanency that, in its own way, is a reminder of the fleeting nature of the very journeys they challenge us to reconsider. His pieces, Harruthoonyan comments, will last long beyond the life cycles of their subjects.
Osheen Harruthoonyan merges movement with themes of cultural heritage and renewal. Originally developed on gelatin silver paper, his limited-edition prints bring together images of the micro – the sun, Saturn, mount Ararat – with the micro – specks of dust, tiny organisms – to create a new perspective of the world around us, challenging our perception of familiar sights and landscapes through interweaving themes of hope and wonder into the visual narratives we interact with on a daily basis. Osheen’s work has been featured in numerous international exhibits, collections and publications, most recently at the Aga Khan Museum in Toronto, Museum London, the Louvre in Paris, Hudson’s Bay New York, as well as features on Vice!, Bravo! Arts, Space Channel, the CBC’s “Exhibitionists” and the Marriott Courtyard Hotel in Los Angeles.
