Gallery Diani is hosting painter Hasan Çevik's exhibition "Silent" from Feb. 16 to March 9. The artist is a new generation artist followed closely by art lovers and collectors. As a new generation painter he uses the aesthetics of landscape painting and symbolical esthetics and has a plain painting language that focuses on pattern that is unique in the use of color and lighting, without exaggeration.
Çevik's second exhibition, Silent, according to the artist, is about the urge and desire to solve nature, nature's mystery, its language and to make it visible. About his exhibition that will open on Feb. 16 at Gallery Diani, Çevik said, "Nature is one of the starting points of art and the artist. Nature connects everything to itself, there is nothing that does not originate from nature. Art also got its first inspiration from nature. Just like in science and technology, the traditional roots of art also are imprinted together with the principles of belief and processed with certain shapes and forms as rules. Observation of nature, in this respect, has opened the door of the new 'possibilities' outside the usual forms of expression for artists."
Hasan Çevik's works can be seen Feb. 16 to March 9 at Gallery Diani.
The exhibition is a symbolic representation of the relationship the artist establishes with nature; therefore the forms used in the paintings have been personalized and transformed by the artist, the exterior form has become the purpose of the interior form. The artist typified his view of nature on the canvas, he chose and decomposed, from time to time has abstracted nature; he repainted his own composition by using ruins, mountains, trees, clouds, lakes, stones and also contract harmonies.
The "Silent" exhibition can be visited from Feb. 16 to March 9 at Gallery Diani.
