Eyes of the Blizzard
February - May 2014
David Grigorian

I
was born hearing impaired on the opposite end of the world, in Armenia. I remember watching my parents’ mouths move, as I observed how the lips moved pronouncing every single letter. I have learned to lip-read. My powerful eyes have enabled me to observe and understand the world where my ears have failed me. However, the silence surrounding me still made me isolated and lonely. I began to withdraw, and escape deeper into my
inner world.  As I was exploring my young universe, I made drawings and sketches of things I saw, slowly becoming an artist and a story teller. Eleven year later, my family and I mover to Japan where I receivedViolet Cosmos my first hearing aids. In the 1995 my family and I moved to USA.

 To this day my paintings are based on abstract, surreal, fantasy, universe, and the spiritual subject matter and storytelling that I find in my imagination and other worlds.  My current art has a lot of movement, bright and contrasting colors, three dimensional subjects, sense of space, sense of balance, symmetry, light and shadow, depth, perspective, and emotions. Soon I understood the importance of the eyes in my life, and with that I quickly produced brand new works of art. My new compositions consisted of large eyes racing, twisting, moving, and flying through space leaving long colorful tails behind.
 
I have graduate from the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in December of 2010. I attained a Bachelor's Degree of Fine Arts in Illustration specializing in children's books and story telling. It has been my lifelong dream to be a published author and illustrator, and I have written and illustrated five manuscripts. I also like to work with my hands, and make clay sculptures mostly of the eyes. I use clay, wood, mirrors, plaster, wire and found objects. I work with oil paint, acrylics, color pencils, and makers. I make fine art pieces, illustrations for the stories, posters, holiday cards, and banners.

Going GreenI had a number of group and solo shows throughout Denver and Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities. I had sculpture installation at Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in 2010. In 2004, my painting was displayed in the Smithsonian. My artwork, poems, and articles were published in local newsletters and a magazine.

I still feel very lonely and isolated, as I have when I was seven. So in some ways I’m still seven in this frightening world, where nothing is promised, I can’t count on anything, and nothing is certain. However the Eyes help me see beyond the darkness. The Eyes seek out bits of hope, confidence, love, inspiration, knowledge, power, imagination, creativity, endurance, adaptability, and vision. The Eyes also represent a window to other worlds, patience, persistence, and understanding. The Eyes bring it back to me, so I don’t collapse into despair.

Twenty nine years later, in the year 2010, the Eyes have become very powerful and big in my universe. The Eyes have broken the barrier between darkness and light in the form of sculptures and paintings. I want to share the Eyes with Earth.  Let the Eyes spread the qualities I have mentioned across the globe, making this world a better place. I have opened a portal to my inner world. When the time is right, I will float right through it. But the Eyes will remain on Earth forever, and the portal will remain open for all eternity.
