SAHIN PAKSOY
(1952, Ceyhan-Adana)

"Paksoy comes out as a painter who comes from various cultures in Turkey and who transfers images strained from his imagination using the features formed by these lands. To be able to create this composition, he looks at Middle Asia, Anatolia, Byzantine, Seljuk Empire and Otoman Empire.

He tries to create Modern Turkish Painting by establishing their evaluation style of painting in his imagination. Sometimes Otoman miniatures, sometimes Byzantine icons and sometimes Seljuk carpets meet us in our squinting eyes. Anatolian culture comes back to life in the canvases. The carpet and tile colors of Otoman and Seljuks emerge again. Rebirth ocurs in these works and Byzantine icons surround us again.

The dust of thousands of years gets cleaned in our minds with Sahin Paksoy’s works…"
