filiz başaran "baskı resim sergisi" "paintings, prints"
[20.04.2009 - 20.05.2009]

Galeri Apel presents an exhibition of works selected from Filiz Başaran’s portfolio of printed engravings, produced from 1975 until recently...

Interpretations of nature and humans come to the fore in the composition of engravings created by scratching zinc and copper plates with needle points using a subtle technique in which thought and sensitivities intermingle. As women, birds, a lion, rooms, pricked needles, burnt matches, blossoms, thorny gardens, students, and soldiers tell their own stories, they offer the audience the opportunity to view a new adventure.
And in some of her engravings, the artist creates a different world by transforming them into mixed-media oil paintings.


Newroz – Yeni Gün– Nevruz (New Day)
[28.02.2015 - 02.04.2015]

We are celebrating newroz – new day – nevruz with an art exhibition. “Newroz - New Day- Nevruz” which is the first day of both spring and the new year for many Central Asian and Middle Eastern societies. March 21 is also the vernal equinox, the day when the cold winter ends, warm days begin and nature awakens. We also consider “Newroz – New Day - Nevruz” as the day of peace. We had the first “Newroz - New Day- Nevruz” exhibition in Diyarbakır in 2005, and now, 10 years later, we will have the second “Newroz - New Day- Nevruz” exhibition in Gallery Apel, İstanbul.
