We are proud to announce that Galerist now represents Nuri Kuzucan.
Nuri Kuzucan (b. 1971, Zara), studied and majored in Painting and mastered in Social Sciences from the Mimar Sinan University of Fine Arts in Istanbul. In his paintings Kuzucan explores intimate spaces and urban landscapes. He is concerned with how the modern city affects the dweller and unravels the solitude through abstract forms that resemble masses of concrete. Depicting an imagined city, Kuzucan makes his paintings by layering paint, starting with an arangement of small geometric pieces that end up creating a discernible whole. The artist expresses his reaction to modernism also in his choice of material: the paper tape he uses consolidates the impact he seeks to create upon the viewer. Kuzucan’s works have a fundamental context: to imagine a three-dimensional space within two-dimensional space, and he excels in doing this through his personal power of observation and a contemporary reflection on the culture of seeing.
