Paul Sarkisian (b. 1928)

Paul Sarkisian presented a series of acrylic-on-paper, trompe l'oeil studies of envelopes, paper bags, and newspapers arranged in imitation of collage compositions. This tricky effect, after the initial shock of realization, quickly becomes repetitious and boring.

In these large painting, the Artist meticulously paints newspapers envelopes, strips of cardboard, colorful scraps of paper, and assembles them against a background of intense color.Apparently elements of collage they reveal themselves on closer investigation to be integral parts of the painted surface.
