Ebru Uygun

Book Description

The Museum Haus Konstruktiv dedicated a focused solo presentation at the group exhibition HOT SPOT ISTANBUL, as well as this publication, to Ebru Uygun.

‘Ebru Uygun graduated from the Department of Painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts at Marmara University. She continued her studies at Kingston University and at Brighton University. Uygun also had solo exhibitions and participated in numerous international group exhibitions. She lives and works in Istanbul. Over the past ten years or so she has developed a complex way of handling the medium of painting, which constitutes a link between the act of painting on canvas, a deconstruction thereof, and a subsequent synthesis: Uygun tears several previously painted canvases into strips, a process which is physically quite strenuous, and collages these strips in a new sequence on another canvas. In turn, this canvas is mounted very traditionally on a stretcher frame. The process of fragmentation and synthesis gives rise to abstract constellations, the components of which hint at a possible, former whole, which nevertheless remains intangible.’
