There is no better way, no better tool to explain life, to explain nature, than the arts. Art is life, is nature, all questions we have about life is explained in or by nature or by letting yourself become part of the chain, and by observing and understanding.
This is what the artist Yildiz Doyran has tried to make us understand and….she has well succeeded.
In her foreword, Oya Silbery, the director of ArtRooms, states the sad fact that we humans have created an illusion of life with the manifestation of our independence from nature, creating sterile environments instead, that turn our existence into something artificial.
Yildiz Doyran uses nature as the raw material of her art and presents the philosophical findings of her research and observance as abstract photographs, prints and etchings, space installations, acrylic paintings on canvas and paper.
Yildiz Doyran was born in 1964 in Hopa on the Black Sea Coast. She graduated from Gazi University Faculty of Education, Painting Dept. in 1968. She completed her PhD degree at Hacetepe University Faculty of Fine Arts Painting in 2002. Today she still works as Dean of Art, Design and Architecture Faculty at Düzce University.
Her works give us an in-depth view of nature, of its colours in light and shade; she goes right into the core of nature, uncovering the natural rules of science and the principles of graphic design.
The exhibition was first opened on 22nd May and will run until 30th June, 2018 at the ArtRooms in The House in Girne (opposite Colony Hotel), viewing times are according to the restaurant hours.
