Gulay Alpay
“I need to find a way to say I love you in multiple languages”    
Solo Exhibition in Rome, October 8-29,2011

We present in Rome, the 8 of October 2011 at 18.30h, at the Arché Gallery by Stefano Minutillo Turtur, on the occasion of Day of Contemporary Art, for the first time in Italy, the Turkish artist: Gulay Alpay, solo exhibition curated by Sveva Manfred Zavaglia, entitled: “I need to find a way to say I love you in multiple languages“. The first exhibition of Gulay Alpay in Rome presents: ten paintings on canvas, ten works on silk with fluorescent color and interactive work “5D dream box”.

A soul all pictorial Fluidity on signs, organic unity in throwing the colors and in drips render the art of Gulay Alpay one pictorial constellation of homage to the life and respect to the nature. In his art, the game is a privileged way of expressing yourself  because it is a primary and indispensable origin of education, creativity and, especially, of communication. Game and imagination are transformed on a aesthetic and ethic search through her communication with colors, proposing values of love, union and stimulus of interaction with artwork. Instinctive and singular chromatic sequences are supported by an effective and vehement expressive strength with clef, signs, lines, points, music notes and hearts that are the space of a music al game, where every sign has its own meaning. Her painting is so impetuous, vivacious, lively and exhilarating that it seems to evoke the extraordinary soul of Aretha Franklin! Listen to this game..listen to this music!! Nilla Zaira D’Urso.

The art of Gulay Alpay, is an art that smiles at us, full of poetry, vibrant colors and light. It explores various types of materials such as silk or canvas, color, shape and movement, scanning the external and internal worlds. She’s an exotic pop-artist, ironic and sensitive, who has worked for years with innovation and consistency. She began her research through an international language, her “dream box” interactive was born for our senses, to make us travel in space, in time, through her imagination and her soul, beyond the barriers of language and culture, dialogue with the universe and stressing the beauty of nature. Everyone inside the box can participated and interact with her art. The creative act is social, it becomes a place where people come together and form something greater than themselves, as in a spiritual gesture, like a shaman, that involves the advancement of humanity, a simple sign of love. For Gulay Alpay every artistic act is a creative experience and ritual transformation, is real and not real at the same time, standing in the middle of the creative flow. She used art as a tool in assisting someone’s soul for the purposes of transformation. Any gesture that she makes, by applying color to silk, painting on canvans or gives body to the painting, are acts of spiritual rebirth, expressions of love for humanity. Its purpose is to challenge the boundaries of the art world with their imagination by creating a different kind of world, where people interact freely and openly in love. Brings back to the past of the great: Kandinsky, Pollock, de Kooning, or Joseph Beuys” Sveva Manfredi Zavaglia.

Gulay Alpay works since ’89, where she graduated in “Fine Arts Department-Painting” at the Mimar Sinan University (MSU) in Istanbul, and where she also took the M.A. in ’92. She has exhibited in various galleries and museums in Turkey, Germany, USA, England, Austria.

INTERVIEW: HEIKE-ANGELA BALTRUWEIT

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
