The painting exhibition by Teoman Südor, who has been creating art for 55 years, "Sonsuzluk" (Eternity), based on nature, light and philosophy independent from time and space is at Gallery Diani until April 28. As the name suggests, the pieces at the exhibition simplify and keep the artist's experiences gained through art, but also question the eternal cycle of nature and humanity by combining temporal and spatial elements time and space while enhancing the colors on the artist's palette.
Südor's pieces, like in all his other exhibitions, are a continuation of his previous exhibitions and his creations form his spiritual perception. Professor Ayla Ödekan said: "In the space Südor defined, the sky and the earth are in dialogue" and professor Nükhet Güz said: "He uses light extremely spiritually and is a master of light."
The exhibition is a straightforward, simple spiritual journey through oil paintings and symbolic narrative.
The exhibition will include a talk with Südor on April 21, Saturday.
