Indien, Äthiopien, Hong Kong und immer wieder Amerika. Die Robin Rice Gallery zeigt die zweite Soloausstellung des gebürtigen Armeniers Haik Kocharian.
Mensch und Natur - das ist sein Thema, oft eingefangen in schlicht anmutenden und dadurch umso beeindruckenderen Bildern. Nebel, Wasser, Wind und Wellen .... alles wie in einem fernen Traum, wie in einem immer gültigen Rätselspiel namens Leben.
