YEREVAN, Armenia – On March 23rd, the opening reception of “Moon in the Dark”, photo art exhibition by Gabriel Panossian, was held in the American University of Armenia (AUA) Akian Gallery. The exhibition will remain open until April 14th, and 50% of all proceeds from artwork purchased will go toward financial aid for Syrian-Armenian students who have been displaced from their homeland.
“In this exhibition I present abstract photos. It all started by an accident, but later on developed and gave this result. I didn’t use any special colors, these colors appeared by themselves – by Mother Nature. I only use the Canon 600D camera.Colors discover themselves. Taking photos has been my hobby since childhood, especially photos from nature. I am really inspired by my work; it gives meaning to my life, and taking abstract photos makes me happy and relaxed. I don’t put any name or title to my images – I like giving the chance to the audience to use their imagination”, stated Panossian.
