NURETTİN ERKAN EXHIBITION - "SAHNEDEKİ MELEKLER / ANGELS IN THE STAGE"
NURETTIN ERKAN EXHIBITION
Sahnedeki Melekler / Angels in the Stage
27 April 31 May 2003
Private view: Saturday 3 May 2003, 4-7 pm
Arcola Gallery inside the Arcola
Nurettin Erkan, an artist who lives and works in İstanbul, will be
exhibiting his most recent work done in 2002 and 2003 at Arcola Gallery inside
the Arcola Theatre between 27 April and 31 May 2003. The exhibition is
entitled Sahnedeki Melekler / Angels in the Stage.
Looking at the formal language of the artists work, which consists of oils on
large-dimensioned canvases, what one immediately observes is the amalgamation of
his aesthetic concerns with the power of his artistic imagination.
We see in figures contained in flitting spaces and enveloped in different roles
a reflection of Erkans depth. Continuously interacting with one another, these
figures seem to emerge from the canvas conceptually and establish a one-on-one
relationship with the viewer thereby making a more enduring impression.
The exhibition, which is accompanied by a catalogue whose foreword was written
by Levent Çalıkoğlu, is being sponsored by Acik Radyo, Arcola Theatre, asaPRESS
Photography Agency, Attridge Solicitors, Bluedots Multimedia Systems, Karsi
Sanat Çalışmaları, Le Monde Diplomatique, Okuyan Us Publisher, Uluslararası
Plastik Sanatlar Dernegi, Tagart Ltd and Vitrine Bookstore.
