Zadik Zadikian New Sculpture Maloney Fine Art Los Angeles April 21 – May 26, 2012
For the past three decades, since his arrival in the US in 1969, Zadik Zadikian has focused his attention on the creation of restrained, minimal forms, which straddle figuration and abstraction.
Since his early gilded interior installations and minimal stacks of gold-leafed bricks, created in New York City in the late 70s and early 80s, Zadikian has continued to create objects of desire, sculpted in gold leafed and electroplated bronze and Hydrocal. Zadikian has built a career around the historical properties of fetishized objects and the mystical powers of gold, recalling Egyptian, Assyrian, Persian and Helenistic cultures. Zadikian’s sculpture refers to heroic and archaic histories with the restraint and aestheticism of a minimalist.
Zadikian studied at the Art Academy of Erevan, South Armenia.
The artist lives and works in Los Angeles.
