NEU Teachers Faculty – Students Exhibition
By Heidi Trautmann….
Zamana Dair….With respect to Time…roughly translated
For some years now I have been following the students’ exhibition of the Near East University’s Teachers Faculty and I find they do great work, not only are they approaching art by many ways, be it pencil drawing, various forms of printing and the whole range of painting techniques, but they try to study and appreciate the works of artists over the centuries…..which you could see in the last exhibition at the Ismet Güney Art Centre in Nicosia.
Large size paintings based on paintings of Old Masters such as Michelangelo Caravaggio, Vermeer and painters of the last century such as Picasso, Georges Braque, Emil Nolde, Paul Gauguin, Paul Klee, Franz Marc, Wassily Kandinsky and who not. We used to do that when I was a student, you were always referred to see how the masters did it, to go to museums and study the various art movements was a must….
I am happy to see that they still do it today, study the rules of composition, the means available ….and also the recording of time events.
