"The  Land  of  Peace  and Silence
How can one explain the particular interest of Shota Voskanyan (and some of his contemporaries) towards some theatrical and circus performance, reincarnation, certain episode or a fairytale illustration? Perhaps it is a dramatizing of our routine life. Perhaps it is a reality deviation or a poetic metaphor concentrating the life. All those really matter for the artist himself and his art. Most likely he makes up that world, and does not mark it out from the seen. Shota is a chamber artist depicting undercover, intimate feelings. In his works he lifts the veil of his own emotions. The world of his depictions is based on common truths arising from a vital formula of his zest for life: life is good regardless of misery, pain and solitude… The artist is sensible to the inner world of a human being full of sympathy and compassion. Notwithstanding, Shota believes that love and kindness rule the world.We observe that love in the nude figures of young women as well. Here is the admiration for female body shape like a precious vessel, an amazing tune…unique and charming. Here is archness, bliss and flirtation… The images of women are his vision of frank passion in all its variety. Here is no parting and consequently no misery now and then highlighted in his “theatrical” works."
