Inspired by calligraphy and life’s radiant emotional energies, the works of Turkish abstract expressionist Feride Binicioglu employ contrasting, chaotic and dynamic structures.
“My paintings are a second language… a journey to spirituality… the energy I get from colors,” notes the artist. Binicioglu fully exploits sharply delineated forms and stark colors to explore such themes as self-contradiction, the spiritual impact of one’s life’s experiences, the thin line between life and death, and the integrity of coincidences. Each work radiates life’s primal energy.
As in life, Binicioglu unites coincidence and intentional appearance in these works, using circles to express creative power and diagonals to convey life’s inescapable mortality. Each piece is strident, evocative, and subliminal in its search for universal truths. Vibrant colors reveal the artist’s sense of awareness of life’s physicality and its connection with emotions. The movement and brushstrokes manifest the very dynamism of existence. Colors and forms are juxtaposed, mimicking life’s harmony and chaotic unpredictability. Each work is carefully structured to draw us into the rhythm of Feride Binicioglu’s creative spontaneity.
