In Gary Kachadourian’s Drawings, You Are The Character

gary kachadourian

Gary Kachadourian is a Baltimore-based artist who takes over rooms and cre­ates site-specific instal­la­tions with his draw­ings. I was able to stand in the mid­dle of his work years ago when he was the recip­i­ent of the Mary Sawyers Baker Prize and had his work exhib­ited at the Bal­ti­more Museum of Art. And, let me just say that it was incred­i­ble. The entire space was cov­ered in his enlarged pho­to­copied draw­ings and it was the world accord­ing to Kachadourian. It was not only the wall, but the ceil­ings and floor, too.

His work dif­fers from the full-size draw­ings of Char­lotte Mann (fea­tured ear­lier today), as Kachadourian’s uses graphite to ren­der these engag­ing depic­tions of urban life. Once you step into one of his instal­la­tions, you are a char­ac­ter in his draw­ings. Do so and love it.
