Townie artist Megerditch Tarakdjian enriches Mount Royal’s public art collection with his sculpture The Reader

quotes

In examining Tarakjian’s sculptures I was touched with his ability to be able to capture a moment in time about everyday human experiences. Tarakdjian credits his profession as a medical doctor for teaching him to better understand and reflect on the different elements of the human condition. On all counts of my criteria Tarakdjian get high grades. The Doctor’s sculptures are worthy of a perfect bill of health.

quotes

Tarakdjian’s artistic expression hinges around two distinct planes, one geared towards aesthetics and the other towards advocacy. Some of his sculpted characters have hollow chests while others are sickly thin. The indescribably dislocated bodies bear an unadorned beauty that appears to be simultaneously fuelled in Eros and in fear.

“If a child is born an artist, then he naturally tries to create. There are many artists whose parents have tried to sway them from their creative path and have convinced them to pursue an unrelated career. However, the gifted ones have stubbornly followed their inner voice and devoted themselves to art. The examples of Van Gogh and Paul Cézanne speak for themselves. The history of Armenian art has also given us many examples. We can specifically mention the renowned artists that we have known personally: Ardashes Hounanian, Jean Kazandjian, and Toros Der Hagopian. It is also possible to classify Canadian-Armenian figurative artist, Megerditch Tarakdjian., amongst these artists.”
