"Varujan Boghosian is a leading Surrealist artist with an international following. He taught at Dartmouth College from 1968 to 1995.
 
Boghosian's assemblages & collages  playfully contemplate the boundaries between imagination and reality. Strongly influenced by Surrealist artists like Salvador Dali and Joseph Cornell, Boghosian constructs work that seems to have meaning but can be difficult to pin down. Individual elements are often drawn from literature, music, and earlier works of art. He is particularly attracted to enigmatic narratives, like the ancient Greek love story of Orpheus and Eurydice, the poems of William Blake, Emily Dickinson, and the prose of James Joyce.
 

The meaning of Boghosian's work is deliberately allusive. The works in this exhibition, which are combination of disparate objects that feel as if they were meant to be together, evoke memory and entreat the viewer to engage each on a personal level. Boghosian's work are open-ended expressions of universal human themes where no one interpretation has primacy over another. They are funny, cerebral, beautiful, and spellbinding. While viewing them, embrace the opportunity for free association." - Exhibition text from the Currier Museum of Art, 2017
