I call this area “Zone of kaleidoscopic images edited in layers”.
In short, I defined it as “Kaleidoscopic Visual”.
All works in two dimensions can be defined as “ visual” regardless of the technique used in their production. The visual is a more general definition whereas photography is a technique
Closed geometric visual motifs are in fact the story of a person’s arrival from his point of departure, his search. Then you figure out everything starts with a dot that is another expression of infinity as a concept. When we look at what I call “visual”, maybe we look at that dot a little bit more closely.
The kaleidoscope effect in visual elements is similar to the more repetitive arranged forms of geometric shapes that I have obsessively drawn and to their patterns, consisting of softer layers that move from “geometry” to “visual”. No matter how much we move our eyes in such an arrangement, we always come to where we started. Just like in life ..
Like you return to where you started after crazy experiences in a “roller coaster”, with a more universal definition from “star dust” to earth.
It’s the continuity in the closed loop, the illusory infinity.
I keep the art identical to the concept of balance, all existence as well everything in the universe is in balance everything that is concrete or abstract can only exist in a balance. Each area of art is structured in a balance. Think of architecture…It’s balanced with engineering in the background. Dance, sports or even violent but stylized aesthetic techniques inspired by nature, common feature of martial arts is balance.
As for photography, it can be said that it is a balance between technique and aesthetics. by very general definition. And the rules of this balance exist both inside and outside of us. To the extent that we capture and reflect this harmony, balance is art.
I try to reveal this kaleidoscopic effect in my photographs and the visuals I created.
I took many pictures in Manhattan. The architectural structures and surfaces made of materials such as brick, glass and metal, which are different from each other and woven with contrasts, form the texture of the city. In particular, the glass surface structures give the impression that you are walking in a giant kaleidoscope. It blows my mind.
In this city, inside this giant kaleidoscope, glass textures that are reflective depending on the angle, sometimes turn into new forms by enriching regular, sometimes irregular patterns, and create depth illusions. This depth that appears on the surface is mixed with the reflection of colors, textures and shapes on another surface. This blend creates changes in color and tone that are repeated forever from formation to deformation.
Kaleidoscopic photos are created by the arrangement of different layers combining all these visual elements and patterns in a very precise balance and harmony.
In my visual works in this exhibition, I used the photographs of statues in various museums and the ones of some parks in Mahhattan as materials.
So, all these reflections, textures and depth studies on photography
Are they the main elements of these visuals?
Exactly. These visuals are like exotic dishes with many different flavors. Different tastes are mixed in your mouth but the effect of a distinct, dominant taste is perceived. In my work, I imagine different cultural textures and works of old artists and I’m trying to reinterpret them in patterns with my own technique. Symmetry, reflections, repetitive patterns are the subjects that exite and activate me.
The backgrounds I’m using in these works and the tens of thousands of reflections, architectural details and artistic objects or motifs are
