More About Asli Torcu

IconInspires

What inspires you?

The act of creation is the action of translating the multi- diverse inner speech into a new language. Within this order, it seems to me that, memory forms the foundation of this universe. So, I find my ideas for paintings often by some emotional triggering by images, memories and shapes and colors.

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

I often work with vernacular type photographic documents. Based on figurative (or non-figurative) data, in my works intersecting with the images appearing and disappearing along the creation process, the colour undertakes its function of creating a dream atmosphere triggered by affect, a continuously transforming space for remembering.
