Fulya Çetin’s art consists of a body of portraits where she freezes, questions and consolidates the concepts of identity, existence, nature and life between her own image and that of the paper. The objects and subjects within Çetin’s works reflect the facets and surfaces in which she searches for their true essence as she opens them up to integrate with the viewer. These paintings have a look. A look with which the viewer is faced... They are stripped of space and time; between a state of existence and disintegration, near a neutral state, focused on the neutral, they are within a space where they search for pure consciousness.
Fulya Çetin was born in Istanbul in 1970. After graduating from Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University Faculty of Fine Arts, Department of Painting in 1995, she participated in various group exhibitions and created projects with the “Hafriyat Artist’s Group”. Çetin lives and works in Istanbul. Paper will provide the first opportunity to view Çetin's work in the UK.
