From September 08 to October 15, 2011 – Galerie Karl Pfefferle
Rhythm and the liveliness of the colours by Robert Delaunay and the effective perception of the colour sequence by George Seurat have been the major sources of the art of Yalcindag. The union between the form of canvas and patterns on the surface has significant importance for the artist. Besides “watching everyday life as colours” brings a pop character into the paintings, usage of contrasts such as light and dark, warm and cold generates an optic effect.
