Exploring my Backyard: The Art of Moving

By pure coincidence today, we ended up at a guest exhibition at the State Art and Sculpture Museum here in Ankara featuring the paintings of a Turkish artist, Ayşegül Poroy. The museum, or art gallery which is how I would call it, usually holds such exhibitions showcasing the work of local artists, although not much information is available to the public. Surprising when the entrance was free. I’d definitely have gone earlier, had I known about it.

The theme of the exhibition “Moving” is definitely one that I can relate to – and probably you as well – although my sort of moving involves only a backpack and no fragile-marked boxes, which is a prominent feature in her paintings. The composition of the paintings was definitely something that stood out and I loved all the vibrant colours she used. I checked the prices at which the paintings were selling and they were a killer – not that I’m surprised. I wouldn’t mind having one or two of these in my living room myself (if I had a living room, and money of course).

The above are some of my favourites from the exhibition. Which is yours? Is this what comes to mind when you think about the moving process?

  1. I didn’t realise it’s a female there on the third pic. I love it when an art piece really “requires” a “second” look, a peruse look.
    Yup, that’s how my move out-move in went. Just a lot more boxes and wrappers. 😀

  2. For the first time I see art based on moving experience! I could say that these are outstanding paintings! Great work! Thank you for sharing! Greetings, Man With Van Hounslow Ltd.
