a graduate of the university of california, kalenderian’s work has an intuitive quality to it. kalenderian effortlessly captures a complete pyschological structure in a single moment.
His individuals find themselves submerged in colorfully patterned surroundings which simultaneously absorb and isolate them. Kalenderian describes his paintings as “a great way to slow things down. The drawing becomes, among other things, a record of this time together, a record of existence.”
Kalenderian’s work can be found in Saatchi collection, the permanent collection of the Los Angeles Country Museum of Art, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Minneapolis Institute of Art, California State University, varying private collections throughout Europe and the United States.
