'The Art of Returning Home'
Portfolio presentation and exhibition @ Arci Gallery
Lado Pochkhua, born in Sokhumi, Georgia, lives and works in New York. Pochkhua mainly works in painting, often using private family albums or photographs from his friends’ archives, flea markets, bookstores and antique shops as a draft for his artworks. These photographs have had a dramatic impact on his works. For Pochkhua the 20th century private photography is characterized by an amazing similarity of themes. With his works he makes a record of collective space across years, nations and wars. His motivation is both the desire to give anonymous photographs a second life and to project the future through the artistry of the not-so-remote past.
