Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

As embodiment of the George Bataille’s philosophy on violating borders, on the opposite side of the traditional painting canvas which puts a fence between space and itself, Otto Batuhan Türker's specified technique banishes the border between artwork and its architecture, its space. Split Canvas has in-between identity which is not a sculpture and not a painting.


Otto Batuhan Turker:

What you see is not a blue rectangle but three pieces of blue or exact opposite. ’Split Canvas’ breaks the laws of definitions and understand the canvas as an object of perceptions which are dilemmas. At first sight, the definitions, which pressure on artists, dogmas about how painting must be. Or about what must be the main consideration point to generate a painting. Here, not the compositions of the paint which covers the surface, but the real composition of the physical word is what is considered. Or, more and more, not just the painting but a way to merge the painting with its environment, or let’s say its architecture or its wall, is considered.''

Artist Profile

I confess, my soul does not fit in any academic formalism, including definitions to apply which motives the output that concretes in artisan’s hands. My soul addresses the spirit which comprises a body of data, extends beyond certain fundamental truths and dogmas that limit the artist within their fence. I cannot be taken shelter in the inhabitable shores since I have tasted experiences of any kind of intense pleasure that extends beyond the known. Experiences which are sexual, fetishistic, anarchistic, defensive, political et cetera. The artist’s real truth, the experience, is always in loop which starts from anywhere then falls into the endless abyss. As opposed to the definitions, I deny any information for the informations sake. To find my own truth… Which defines myself as an artist which is not in the dictionaries, but in life itself.
