For Gerham Geghamyan realistic perceptions in the world, psychological characteristics, condensation of emotions, and lacking details emphasized generalizations remain important. Along with the similarity to the subject world, the essence of the content is highlighted in the work. The sensory beginning becomes decisive. It is here that we are dealing with expressive manifestations and anxious energy that results in condensed, visually intense and distorted depiction of reality. The distortion of reality as a protest or a mere depiction of how the artist sees on a canvas. Maybe: Gegham does not feel that expression in his own works. He is the carrier of that tense energy and transforms that energy into creating his own paintings. During that time, he freely uses all the elements of painting. solid drawing, swing, restraint, certain geometry of shapes. All this gives the canvas internal strength and monumentality. Clear, expressive forms have been brought to the ascetic simplification. The discreet, stingy, colorful strict environment create an illusion of imagination thanks to abstract and realistic games. Objects in the movement are freed from their original ways and tend to the boundaries of the new creation. As close to black greenish ghosts the lightly lit characteristic lines of the figures are seen. Color and sharp luminaries help emphasize the materiality of the forms. The color goes beyond the object, turns into a substance, but never becomes dominant. Even at first glance the depth seems to be a monochromic, but in reality it is very complicated and is a the result of detailed work. From such depths, expressive, ascetic, lonely and complete, abandoned characters appear in almost all the works of Gegham. The loyalty to own beliefs amazes, the diversity of presenting ways of narrow topic is astonishing. All this confirms that Gegham does not need to look for form anymore and the only thing that he needs is inspiration. Something that the artist receives every day, every second, absorbing the tension and energy served by life.
