Arshak Oganesyan fully embodies the aphorism: “Style is a man”! After all, only the style is the one and only feature that distinguishes man from other people.
Even a glimpse of any of Arshak’s photographs is enough to penetrate his style, moreover, to see the author. Dynamic, fast, flowing like mercury. “All the time I am moving forward, climbing to the top, the end of which I do not see. I am constantly learning, learning from young people, from masters, learning everything that interests me, and much interests me: the joy of a friend, the pain of a passer-by, a lonely pigeon cowering in the corner of a transition on a frosty day. ”
It is from here that Arshak has such a subtle and touching love for specific “photo details”: a couple of “pacers”, a photographer near the Resurrection Gate, a Dutch house almost disappearing in the mirrors of volumetric letters at a glass at the shy “Chess Player”. Regular viewing of works involves, delays, forces to search for more and more “lost” and hidden objects, perhaps from the author himself. It is like a mirror labyrinth in which imaginary images and reflections are mixed with true ones.
Even on those frames where they are physically missing mirrors, they are still there. For example, “The country which does not exist”: a red-white mirror barrier rhythm, mirror inscriptions on flags, a mirror movement of people flow and wind. A very characteristic reminder for Arshak that only the mind moves in our world.
However, the author’s method is most vividly manifested in the work “Leap”. On it - the author himself is simultaneously noticeable and inconspicuous, static, like a photographic "click", but around which a crooked spiral unwinds like a leap, instantaneous, like an inept dance pa street life. Collision of color and colorless, transient and unchanging, movement towards and oncoming traffic.
