This concept serves as a basis for the compositions and patchworks of the philologist Nelly Gevorgyan. She gives second birth to the goods which seem to be already useless.
Mrs. Gevorgyan who worked at the Museum of Yerevan State University for many years always used to make small compositions, but started the creative work some four years ago.
They say that Parajanov has inspired me. But I have to say that I learnt of his works late enough and was fascinated by them. I am very far away from the prefect level of Parajanovs works.
Her fourth exhibition was opened on the 1st of March at the Museum of National Art of Yerevan. The first exhibition was the result of the impression caused by the felling. I was so upset for such a massacre that wished to give second life to the cut branches,- says the author. She never sold any of about 500 compositions made of branches, but presented to people who really liked these compositions.
For example broken glass and various accessories can serve for Mrs. Nelly as a material. She also draws with different types of glue, giving them colors. She prefers bright spring colors. I work only during the severe winter and at nights. I do not work when the weather is warm: so much different can be done, new impressions and inspirations are just all around,- she says.
Just the material itself impresses Nelly Gevorgyan, and one can never know what shape it will get in the end. Perhaps this is the reason that I can not teach anybody to make patchworks and compositions. I have obtained these skills myself and I do not know how to teach anybody else.
