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 and spraypaint into her artwork.

This series incorporates text from her Facebook and social media pages. According to Yasemin:

"I am inspired by the written communication on Facebook, a virtual social networking website, also known as one of the symbols of popular culture today. I chose to focus on the text to examine the ways to make this ephemeral, fleeting written data lasting and perhaps permanent by means of re-channeling and re-presenting them in a visual format. I was also interested in exploring how these realities typed in virtual space would survive by means of my handwriting when adapted to the pictorial space, and where this process would lead me."

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.
