About

New Nostalgias is a new work on paper by Turkish artist Yasemin Kackar Demirel. This architectural inspired artwork is watercolor, block print and graphite on paper. It is 16x20 framed to 19x24.5. Yasemin Kackar Demirel is an emerging Turkish artist. She was born in Istanbul, received her MFA in DeKalb (IL), and currently lives in New York. Her work is a fragmented and reconstructed journey through the places she has lived and traveled, both real and imagined. She has a strong use of color and mediums incorporating acrylic, ink, pen, graphite, pastels, watercolors and spraypaint into her artwork. According to Yasemin, her latest Gaps series: “Movement in architecture and in nature are compelling to me. I view a world within continuous social and political conflicts and struggles, and reflecting upon this movement is freeing to me. This is a controlled freedom. I explore the ways in which emotional and physical balance, safety and stability can be maintained. I base this cyclical quest on replanning and abstracting the existing structure and geometry of sites and vistas. In this watercolor and block print series on paper titled ‘Gaps’, I gather and combine tracings of various places and restructure them with color and planes. These depictions are inspired by geographic boundaries, the state of transits, vastness of landscapes, aerial views, and interior and exterior architectual elements such as ceiling views, archways, windows of museums, restaurants, galleries, coffee shops, concert halls and theaters. Along the process, I repurpose my paper palettes by cutting out organic/gestural shapes from them which may resemble lands and border lines suggesting territorial maps. I then transfer these contoured shapes as block prints. Within a dynamic system of shifts, I am drawn to the idea of capturing the infiniteness of constructions in land and in urban life with a grounded sense of freedom, controlled yet uninhibited.” Yasemin has been featured in solo and group exhibitions in the US and Turkey. Her work is also in the Ipek-Ahmet Merey Foundation in Istanbul, Turkey.
