Seçil Erel, Territory-Latif Palas, 2013, oil on canvas, 140 X 161cm.

BODRUM.- The final exhibition for the 2015 season at Casa dell’Arte, The Nominative Case, features three Turkish artists: Özlem Paker, Seçil Erel and Nezih Çavuşoğlu whose works are collected both in Turkey and internationally. Each artist is well known for their unique, simple styles and their examination into the state of being alone and the evolution of civilizations. The combination of these artworks offer an alternative experience to the viewer.

Özlem Paker, an artist who uses multidisciplinary techniques and explores the common symbiotic relationship between reality and the spiritual world. Paker examines the rhythm of existence in natural elements as well as man-made architectural structures and our relationship to them. She reinterprets them by applying a minimal and playful style where her architectural compositions use accurate lines, and the paint itself becomes organic with traces of her existence. Özlem Paker graduated from the Ceramics Department at Mimar Sinan University and completed her graduate studies at Parsons School of Art & Design in New York from the Design and Technology Department. She has taken part in both solo and group exhibitions in Turkey and abroad.

Painter Seçil Erel, with her unique painting technique represents the silent spaces that are filled with experiences which come through onto the surface of her canvases via her creation of individual maps. Erel recreates architectural plans and turns them into a painting while emphasizing the pictorial value of it. She examines the unseen fragments between space and architecture by focusing on the relationship between painting-life and space. Born in 1980, Seçil Erel received her undergraduate and graduate degree from the Painting Department at Mimar Sinan University.

Nezih Çavuşoğlu is known for his bright colored abstract paintings that visually, and sensually offer an alternative experience to the audience. In his artworks, he uses the aesthetic power of his knowledge on color and aims to find different harmonies among blue, purple and white by using the gradients of the same colors. For this particular exhibition, the artist travels back to the Bodrum history of Halicarnassus from Leleges to Karia and created unique and abstract compositions by using colors associated with Bodrum. Nezih Çavuşoğlu received his Visual Arts Education in America at England College. He specialized in color theory under the influence of his instructor Tomie de Paula. He has participated in many exhibitions in America, Switzerland and Turkey.
