Eozen Agopian creates visual parallels between rational and cosmological worlds through constructing and deconstructing, layering and erasing, scraping and marking, unraveling and reconnecting. She incorporates techniques of drawing, painting, sewing and weaving in her work. Using thread as a primary medium, Agopian relates her practice to modern scientific theories such as string theory—exploring the possibility that different particles in nature are made from tiny loops of string. Her next solo show will take place at Eleftheris Tseliou Gallery in Athens, Greece.
