(1928-1993)

“Qavaroak is obviously more interested in form and shape than in narration or realism. Storytelling, proportion, anatomy, clothing, and other details are subordinated to the artist’s overall sculptural concerns such as positive/negative space, movement, line, and composition. Qavaroak’s depictions of animals, humans, and spirits — usually singly or at most with two to three figures — are often rounded and flowing with an emphasis on curves and lines, particularly the outline of the subjects. Especially in those works comprised of two to three figures, the sculptures can be quite complex, with intertwining and interweaving individual elements. But even the single figures are characterized by curving, rounded, and sensuous lines.”
