Painting, 66 x 66 cm
by Gültekin Bilge©
About this artwork: This painting is one of the first wood series. These artworks are the result of the artist’s idea to break free from the convention of painting within a rectangular frame. The artist uses the whirling technique to tell the tale of Narcissus. It is a metaphor to convey how people or communities can become so caught up in their own image that they turn their back on the world. So the world turns away in response. He developed this new whirling style of oil painting by adapting the forms of traditional Turkish marbling, which is a water based technique to imprint designs onto paper. The result generates a similar visual effect to marbling although the technique is entirely different.
