Art ON Istanbul, Meşrutiyet Cad. Bilsar Binası No. 90-A, Şişhane, Beyoğlu

The Turkish artist Burcu Perçin has an innovative style of painting. Known for her influential expression and sensitivity to preserve the balance between form, colour, aesthetic and subject, Perçin presents her new series of paintings in which she examines the consumption of nature in our capitalistic society.

Perçin’s works underline her concern that the mountains of Turkey are being turned into mines and quarries. She is also concerned about the poor working conditions of the construction workers and the destruction of the mountains by foreign-partnered capital powers. Besides her ideological approach, the artistic relationship Perçin establishes with her images are evident in this series.

Prices range from TL1,500 to TL6,000.
