‘TOUCH’ Illumination and Miniature Exhibition

Mövenpick Hotel İstanbul Golden Horn

26th of May 2017 / 24th of June 2017

Whichever form it is,

Art should be within life

It should provide beauty to people

And must TOUCH their hearts.

The arts of Tezhip, Miniature and Hat, which are the basis of Traditional Turkish Decorating Art, in the art works exhibited at the Golden Art Gallery by AYA and the other sections of the Mövenpick Hotel Golden Horn were produced by the artists of the Şeker Art House. Here you can find information is about the three ancient arts and its masters that carry the traces of the past to the present.

ŞEKER ART HOUSE The Şeker Art House founded by the illumination and minature artist Sabriye Şeker in 2003, carries out illuminated manuscript, miniature, pattern and paper marbling work. The basis of the ‘Traditional Turkish Decorating Arts’ that is an important branch of Turkish cultural history, consists of motifs, patterns that take inspiration from nature, delicacy and unique aesthetic understanding. It is our belief that how well we can express these ancient arts, which tell of our past, will provide a benefit to the future. Following this belief, the ‘Şeker Art House Group’ learns all the delicacies of these arts with traditional methods. Based on this basic information, we make presentations to contemporary art lovers with new approaches and rich arrangements by adding that beatiful spirit of our workshop.

We express our feelings with the works we do and try to add beauty to society through art. In addition to these, we have a mission. Under the leadership of our dear teacher Sabriye Şeker, aside from our normal exhibitions, we organize ‘project exhibitions‘ based on a atheme we have decided on every year since 2008.

THE ART OF TEZHIP (ILLUMINATION)

In writing books, in writing albums that is given the name muraqqa, which is a form of calligraphy art, in edicts and hat sheets as well as in all types of decorations done with paint and gold it is given the name tezhip. The meaning of the word is ”gliding’‘. The person undertaking tezhip is called ”müzehhip” (gilder) and the tezhip work is named ”müzehhep” (gilt). The history of the art of gilding by Turks goes back to the Uighurs. During the Ottoman Era it was udes to decorete the Koran and its verses and developed during this period. Tezhip, as an art form, has found an area of application not only in the East but in the West as well. In particular, Tezhip was used extensively in the holy scripts and prayer books of Christianity in the Middle Ages as decoration.

MİNYATÜR ART

Minyatür or miniature is a small, colored painting art style that does not reflect that feeling of light, shade or wolume and is mostly seen in old writing books. These types of finished paintings are called miniature and miniature artist is called a nakkaş. On paper or on leather using watecolor or gold water done with thin brushes, miniature art gave its most beatiful works during the Ottoman period. Depicting topics such as sultan’s segiments, festivities, circumcision, wedding and funeral events, battle scenes and town images, the works are at the same time in the nature of being historical documents. Aside from the miniature decorations, it was also widely used in particular in medical, geography, astronomy and botanical and the other books. Nakkaş artists such as Levni, Nigari and Nakşi are among the leading miniature representatives in this at form.

THE ART OF HAT

Hat, as defined in the dictionary means, ”A thin, long, straight path, the line that brings together many points and lines them, things that are similar to lines and writing.” Hüsnü hat, by being faithful to noted aesthetical rules can be explained as the art of writing. In western culture, the opposite of the art of Hat is calligraphy. Those who engage in this at form are known as hattat. The masters of the art of Hat reflect the soul in their works. They bring together beauty, feelings and thoughts from the inner soul on paper with a pen. This art, which drew much attention in Islamic states and dynasties, rose to its highest level with its aresthetic powet during the Ottoman Era and won an identity to be known as the ”Turkish Art of Hat.”

Derya YILDIZ

”Wall Symphonies”

Park Dedeman Levent (İstanbul)

6th of May 2017 / 28th of June 2017

”A woman is color, light and sound.

While telling the composition of a woman that comes from her characteristic of being and blending in harmony with contemporay life and synthesizing the old and the new in a mystical atmosphere, I intend to be able to clearly express my works of rhythm and harmony in music and art lovers who follow me. In my figures that portray contemporary women symbolically, in other words women who are at the center of my paintings, I ty to emphasize it as an open expresion of modernization. As I emphasize the walk of women on this line that come from the past to the present and to the future; as in Turkey, in the modernization of the world, women must absolutely exist and cities without an effective women’s function, will only consist of empty concrete buildings and streets and without a soul is what I try to express in my works.

It is a distinct beauty that my painting can whisper a message with a woman’s sensitivity.”

(Quotes from the interview: Vecdi Uzun – Ankara Life Magazine / October 2016)

Born in 1971 in Ankara, Derya Yıldız graduated from the Department of Painting, Faculty of Education of Gazi University, Ankara. In addition to her art works, she has been şnvolved as an instructor at the Çankaya Başkent  Halk Eğitim Merkezi (Çankaya Capital Adult Education Center). She has had 12 solo exhibitions, participated in art fairs, international art workshops as well as in many mixed exhibitions. In recent years, her works mainly deal with contemporary woman whom she depicts by way of various instruments. She emphasizes the ability of women to blend harmoniously with contemporary life, which she builds upon through her own foundations. In keeping with this idea, a solid brush design besides the stains forms the search for female harmony on canvas in the imagination of the artist. In her own words, ”A woman is color, light and voice. It is a distinct beauty that my painting can be whispered through messages of a woman’s sensibility.” Derya Yıldız has her paintings in both overseas and national private collections and countinues her work in her Ankara Studio.

‘SPRING COLLECTION’

Mövenpick Hotel İstanbul Golden Horn

22nd of April 2017 / 20th of May 2017

Haluk EVİTAN, who mostly emphasizes the symbolic expression of the humans inner world with his works,

Davit UGHRELIDZE, who has his own unique techniqıe and original color palette, a powerfull design comes forth sometimes approaching naive, calm with a lucid style.

Alexander UGLOV, who succesfully combines the portraits he has applied with landscaping elements on the same canvas and can change the viewer’s mood with his works,

With his compenent use of brush, strong pattern and textura knowledge and with his minimalist approach that manipulates forms without distortion stand out, Anatoliy ZHUK,

has met to meet the spring in Mövenpick Hotel İstanbul Golden Horn‘s fascinating atmosphere…

Teymur Ağalıoğlu

Born in Georgia in 1953, Teymur Ağalıoğlu graduated from the Baku Azim-Azimzade State Art Institute in 1976 and from the Tbilisi State Fine Arts Academy’s Department of Painting in 1981. Since 2006, he has been a member of the United Painters and Sculpters Association and has participated in over 50 individual and mixed exhibits with works included in the private collections of the Ministry of Culture of the Rebublic of Turkey, the Municipality of Denizli, the Alanya Museum and Malaysia, France, England, U.S.A., Australia, Switzerland, Holland and Germany.

In addition to the 41 individual exhibits, Haluk Evitan has participated in many mixed exhibitions and took part in Contemporary Istanbul togerher with RC Gallery in 2008. His works focus on the symbolic expression of the inner world of humans with his striking and rich understanding of form and composition. Even tough the figures in his watercolor portraits are concentrated in a fragmented structure in pastel colors and human heads dominate, in his oil paintings abstract approaches are more dominant. Motion, linear forms and striking shapes with contradictory passions make up laws of harmony of the artist’s character.

Davit Ughrelidze

He was born in Georgia in 1959 and started his painting life at a childhood age. As a child, his path in life became interwined with art after receiving an honorary award at an international painting exhibit in Tokyo. He graduated from the Tbilisi Fine Arts Academy in 1983. Aside from books, illustrations and sculpture work, for many years, he undertook work as a painter in theater decor. As of 1996, he continues his work in Turkey having singed off on more than 20 solo exhibits. Ughrelidze has many of his works in private collections in Georgia, Russia, Italy, Spain, Holland, Germany, France, Cuba, Israel, England and Turkey.

Alexander Uglov

Receiving his degree from the Faculty of Graphic Arts of Kryvyi Rıh State University in 1997, the artist has a wide range of works in realism, impressionism, expressionism and abstract art. Producing innovative essays using different materials and techniques in every style he transmits to the canvas, Alexander Uglov signs off on successive works in dance, fantasy, fairy tale, drama and music themes. The artist posseses a fluid style that allows the viewer to feel himself in the picture in the flow of his works. However, the area where he produces the most works are landscape elements as well as succesfully applied portraits. Although Uglov generally uses oil paint, fom time to time he also uses pastel and wstercolor in his works and has had many individual and mixed exhibits in different cities of Ukrraine and many foreign countries.

Drawing attention to Turkish collectors with his original works, Zhuk’s canvas is characterized by subtle color nuances with strokes of genius and elegant light effects that become self-evident. With his compenent use of the brush, strong pattern and texture knowledge, his minimalist approach that manipulates forms without distortion stand out. The objects are objects that are known but they appear different from what they are. Like time that changes and distorts its effect on an object, the artist’s interpretation also distorts the object but does not change its essence. Zhuk comments that, ”The uncertainty of the right time makes the person idle. When you wait for the right moment to speak, the right moment will pass. The right time is now! We need to talk! We need to move!”

1st of April 2017 / 10th of May 2017

The artist believes that art’s mission is seeking the truth rather than telling the story and emphasizes that the truth is determind by bitter distortions rather than the beauty that pleases us.

”Everything is warped, existance is warped, and each of our distortions would be destroyed in ugly falsehood in this confusion, if we weren’t shouldered by another distortion of someone else. What looks like correct is the one that is less distorted than the others. You cannot fix anything that is crooked in my pictures because they were drawn crooked as a work of inability. In your own life picture, according to the ability of humans, you have always the chance to paint what is correct in reality.”

Park Dedeman Levent (Istanbul)

25th of March 2017 / 3rd of May 2017 

Teymur Ağalıoğlu’s minimalist landscape understanding of oil paintings and watercolor works in the past has left its place to an abstract search in recent years. The complementing color relations collected behind the canvas in contrasting surprises, paints an event from chaos to a stop with organic lines. As if a after a crash, as if the water findings its way of flowing, the stains flow from Ağalıoğlu’s brush and finds its place on the canvas.

Born in Georgia in 1953, Teymur Ağalıoğlu graduated from the Baku Azim-Azimzade State Art Institute in 1976 and from the Tbilisi State Fine Arts Academy’s Department of Painting in 1981.

Efe KASAPLAR – No Return

Park Dedeman Levent (Istanbul)

25th of January 2017 / 10th of March 2017

Two Painters, Two Seas – Mövenpick Hotel Golden Horn (İstanbul)

29th of November 2016 / 29th of January 2017

Arman ALLAHVERDIYAN / VICTOR SHEVCHENKO

The sea…

The sea in me is different.

Its ship, moon and sun,

Its glint, fog, haze all different.

Its tender fury, its tranquil intensity

Its color all different?

From its misty mystery yo my foggy eyes,

From its calm strength to my calm rage.

From its uncertainty to my uncertainty,

From its immensity to my shallowness

with ever-ending colors,

a revolving giant vortex.

My life is the sea…

Its coast, its region,

Its sail, its pier

The water is you, the salt is me,

Its surroundings about people

If it wasn’t for me, what would you do sea?

My boat, my sail,

My passenge, my dock,

My sky that climbs the mast,

If I don’t have a moon to reflect your sunlight.

What good is the sea?

I am the sea, the sea is me.

Summer Colors – EATALY – Zorlu Center (İstanbul)

20 July 2016 / 30 September 2016

Anatoliy ZHUK

How does summer come to the human heart? With all it’s colors, with all it’s warmth, just suddenly. It just comes with flowers that turn the heads through their colorful smiles, and spankling leafs.
Whenever the summer of Zhuk comes, it always stays there.

Victor SHEVCHENKO

How does summer come to the human heart? With red sails,with ebony sticks,with decks full of hope berthing like summer to discharge the color on human’s path.
This is the “Summer Arrived” scream by Shevchenko.


Valentin REKUNENKO

How does summer come to the human heart? With all it’s joy, with cats, fishes like a thin ballet dancer accopanying the laughter of a piano.
Some walls are lucky, since the colors of summer are put on them as Rekunenko.

Love City – EATALY – Zorlu Center (İstanbul)

February – March 2016

The exhibit of Ukrainian painter Arman Allakhverdiyan entitled “Love City” consists of three sections: ´Love City,´ ´Say Your Love with Flowers´ and the ´Sea’s Song.´
In ´Love City, ´Arman Allakhverdiyan wants us to imagine how we can find this city. It’s a city where nobody is lonely, everyone can hold a warm hand and a safe shoulder to lean on. This is a city that calls for love…
It’s not necessary to explain at length what ´Say Your Love with Flowers´ says… The bouquet of flowers that you give to your loved one can only say what else but love.
As to the ´Sea’s Song,´… The sea, ship, persons and life… The meeting of two people; aside from a different journey, it is like the meeting of two ships at sea… Ship and people! One is the sea’s, the other life’s passenger. The meeting of two people can mean the intersection of destinies. It is like two ships greeting each in their journey in the vast seas. Their paths that intersect in love, may the journey of the two people that “meet” set sail to freedom like the ships that journey to vast seas…
