Commentaire :

Vahe began his career as an architect, and his paintings and drawings continue to reflect a quest to make his mark on civilization. The mental constructions dreamt up and expressed by Vahe, pen or brush in hand, bear the imprint of his anxious concern with age-old questions of an existential nature. Over the years, three main themes keep reappearing in Vahe's work, bearing witness to the plasticity of his approach. These are: faces, imbued with huge questioning eyes,-landscapes, depicted in exalting shades... abstract expanses of many-hued skies, solar or darkly stirred up surfaces,- and, as well, architectural creations variously presented horizontally, vertically, figuratively, abstractly.

Vahe invests the world with building dreams and schemes, allotting space with a firm hand and with an eye to concretizing every one of his ideas. The artist's compositions make no secret of the staircases, vaults, roads, canals, arches, and houses comprising them. But it is above all the lines that matter, the linear elements that serve to render the surface plane dynamic. Various plastic and pictorial stratagems - bird's eye perspectives, vertical and horizontal planes, geometric figures, receding lines, boldly truncated cross sections, daring page layouts, off-centering and oblique slants -serve as tools to Vahe for his architectural translations into a world where all is at once well-ordered, strict and poetic. These human facets are projected onto the nakedness of the surface plane.
