ISTANBUL, February 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Ahmet Güneştekin's thought-provoking art work Encounter Kostantiniyye will be on display by Marlborough Gallery at ARCO Madrid, between Wednesday 24 and Sunday 28, from 12 am to 8pm.
The powerful variants of Encounter Kostantiniyye have been earlier showcased at Marlborough Barcelona in the show titled El poder de los orígenes, mark common concepts and values, and express the possibility of developing an equal point of view on different religions and histories.
Daniel Giralt-Miracle, well-known Catalan art critic and historian, introduces the artist whose creations arise from unusual formulations as regards form as well as meaning and that are entirely unlike those that have been acclaimed over the past few decades in the major European and American cities.
"Güneştekin is not only an artist interested in a plurality of themes, but he is also multifaceted in his ability to deploy diverse artistic resources - clarifies Daniel Giralt-Miracle - One aspect that especially captures one's attention is the fact that in this amalgam of parallel lines, there are also curves and circles, which often creates a kinetic interplay of spheres, using the effects of op-art to emphasize the presence of the sun."
Güneştekin conveys his considerations about the passage of time, religion and cultural history by converting mythological narratives into abstract imagery. He deploys a peculiar procedure to combine meaning and form in his works. In essence, his paintings are informed by a mythological background fundamentally related to the legends and oral traditions of his native culture.
Marlborough Gallery showcased Güneştekin's Million Stone exhibition, which includes his works based on both cultural-social history and social gender, simultaneously with the Venice 56th International Art Biennale. The gallery still continues to exhibit the artist's works as part of their permanent collections in their galleries located in Barcelona, Madrid and New York.
Ahmet Güneştekin offers visitors rich and complex immersion in ancient mythology and cultural evolution whose imagery and significance resonate with the tumult of history and politics in play at this very moment in time. Güneştekin's current projects voice the mystical soul of his country, revealing stories and legends trespassing geographical borders testifying to the common roots of different cultures.
