Eileen received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1994 from the
School of Visual Arts in New York City, majoring in Advertising Design.
Since graduation she was an art director in advertising, producing both
national TV and print campaigns. Her work has been featured in Adweek
and Advertising Age magazine. She continued her fine art studies at the Art
Students League in NYC, concentrating on painting, design, color, composition
Today, Karakashian makes paintings and mixed media artworks. By
emphasizing aesthetics, Eileen tries to develop forms that do not follow logical
criteria, but are based only on subjective associations and formal parallels,
which incite the viewer to make new personal associations. Her paintings are
based on formal associations which open a unique poetic vein. Multilayered
images arise in which the fragility and instability of our seemingly certain reality
is questioned. By rejecting an objective truth and global cultural narratives, she
creates with daily, recognizable elements, an unprecedented situation in which
the viewer is confronted with the conditioning of his own perception and has
to reconsider his biased position.
Color and texture are the foundations to my paintings. The mixed media and
acrylic paintings I create all usually start with a color idea and then evolve into a
composition in which color and texture are the primary subjects. By applying
abstraction, I create intense personal moments created by means of rules and
omissions, acceptance and refusal. The results are deconstructed to the extent
that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. – E.K.
