You Did Not See Me, I Was Falling Apart

About

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 series: “Explores the rise and fall of places through physical and emotional conducts. I like to work with random juxtapositions of places in nature and the urban environment and re-present them in puzzling and surprising contexts. Shifting between abstraction and representation, I explore and experiment with the push-pull effects between the concepts of longing vs. apathy, insecurity vs. comfort, order vs. chaos, unfamiliarity vs. belonging and stability vs. ephemerality. I am intrigued by the idea of fragmenting and connecting which reinvestigates a place by reconstructing or renovating while destroying it. Here, I am employing the possibilities of a new location, a new order devoid of any preconceived identity whereby I find myself in total conformity.” 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.
