The 3D Project Room Installation is a collaboration with the artist and designer Emre Erturk, who will be doing a performance with Gulay Alpay during the opening Reception. For love and peace!

In 3D Project Room Installation Alpay creates an innovative world within a world. Each of these “worlds” are in the creating with a variety of mediums by Alpay and the several other collaborating artists and non-artist friends and guests during the show. Turkish artist Gulay Alpay has developed a reputation for poetic epic works that display both delicacy and fragility, revealing a deep respect for something fundamental, some primal, indigenous sense of shape and color, yet she creates with bursts of contemporary idioms. Her paintings are playful, spirited, freeform and deceptively complex. There’s not a single corner, hard edged, geometric line to be found in her composition, instead the shapes are as fluid as the submerged sounds that fuel her imagination.

Gulay Alpay began the invoative piece in Istanbul, and will continue the piece and the creative process in the gallery space here in NY. Utilizing every inch of the project room space; her artistic vision will not be hampered by the gallery walls limits. This is a method Alpay’s come to be known for during her many years of artistic discourse. Leaving an open space only through which to accept the visitors, the artist will also welcome visitors to interact and participate in her world and work of art.

Alpay will re-create and bring her studio into project room of the gallery and create an “Open Studio Tour” where the artist and visitor can both exist inside the picture and therefore exist within the artist’s state of creation. Alpay includes hundreds of submissions by means of her social and technological networks, by artists and non-artist’s alike. All these submitted doodles will appear in Alpay’s installation creating a multi-colored foundation for further creation within the gallery space.

This world made of silk, ink, and acrylic paint will then offer many surprises including painting, being embraced with clothing of silk painting that will have its last strokes of paint spontaneously added by the artist or by selecting the measurements of a silk scarf that will be completed right there and then as a collaboration by the artist and the visitor. An other special art work on silk which Gulay Alpay began in Istanbul, will be continued by artist and designer Emre Erturk here in New York. Both artists will be selling the piece to help fundraise money for www.strength.org. Anti-hunger organization that mobilizes industries and individuals to contribute their talents to fight hunger. Alpay is looking forward to the exchange, combination, and fusion over her ever so volatile and brilliantly colorful energy with each and every person visiting her studio at project room, playfully, spontaneously—all for the sake of peace and beauty.

INTERVIEW: HEIKE-ANGELA BALTRUWEIT

Interviews | October 12, 2020

I am looking for abstract compositions in my surroundings to capture them photographically. The objects and situations are neither changed, arranged nor manually illuminated, nor are they subsequently edited on the computer, even the detail is identical to the shot. All pictures are 'Pure Photography'. I see my surroundings as a 'natural exhibition space'. I find works of art on the pavement, on building walls, in the water and in factory buildings. These works of art are fixations of the moment and therefore difficult to reproduce. A different angle of view, a changed incidence of light, and the colours, bizarrely changed forms have disappeared. Read more

"I prefer to work with natural, familiar material such as stone and metal to create my own work, and I depends on create forms using details abstract and simple to focus on the beauty of shape, I chose animals shape and abstract it, cause it have more vitality and ability to make different movement, and trying to make a dialogue between shapes in some work, but now I am trying to focus on the idea of beginning and how to find away from it till you find your own way (when I look at my work and checked it I feel like it’s all talking about the beginning when everything started – all we trying to do will be better if we found our real start). Now I am working on creates new shapes inspired from all I did before and develop it, to present my first solo exhibition next year." Read more
