About Ara Hagopian's The LITERATE Show

For over thirty years, I have enjoyed drawing beautiful shapes and writing complementary stories. The imagery tends to focus on our place in the world—whomever or whatever we may be. I am influenced by Twentieth Century history—I read vintage magazines, books and letters. Inspiration comes from visualizing human achievement and personal interaction—derived from people, places and things which may be obscure, but never insignificant. My pen-and-ink THE MAGNIFICENT RECOVERY was selected by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston for their 2008 summer art auction.

    Different and definitely ‘out there’ – also held my interest throughout. Whether a work of fiction or non-fiction this captivating story was both thought provoking and creative … paradoxically depressing and uplifting at the same time!

    • Thanks for writing Christopher. You know, I’ve been “living” with Joanna, York, and Buck for a few years now. York is narrating this story on a sad day–he misses his deceased fiance–and pulling highway duty w/ Buck’s mate didn’t improve matters.

      I tend to forget the ideas presented here may sound far-fetched; to me the colony exists and thrives just as described.

      Thanks, as always, for reading!
