A dialogue between non-Western and Western cultures on anthropological, sociopolitical, and environmental as well as economics-related and day-to-day questions


Özcan Kaplan

For Özcan Kaplan, painting is physical, gestural, an open process of gradual formulation. His non-figurative paintings depict poetic relationships between details. Filled with ruptures and ambiguities, they still convey an atmospheric tonality – they are a “free-for-all” of colours and shapes.
Kaplan views his works as “open works of art”, which do not impose an interpretation on the viewer but leave him or her free to make their own interpretation.  We also see the “apparent simplicity and an ease of appearance” oscillating in a delicate balance between image and object, colour and non-colour, painting and material.
