“The Colours of a Distant Land”, 2019, oil on canvas, 102×76 cm.
This is second painting of a triptych. I have dreamed of expressing my own world of colours more resolutely and freely, the landscape that I have discovered working on the “Spirit of the Nature”.
It was the exact time that i closed my eyes while exactly in the heart of London, and while experiencing the colourful spring of London, that is pregnant of new feelings every single moment.
The spring takes its colour from Judas trees in Istanbul. Suddenly purifies the 7 hills from the blues of the winter. This is one of the most precious spring gifts to Istanbul. It is inconceivable not think of it as a ‘festival’ that cuddling with all varieties of blues of Bosphorus.
My heart carried the colours of blues, love, spring and existence to European lands with Chopin’s notas. There are the moments that the forms confined with just being ‘descriptive’ in density of feelings. “The Colours of a Distant Land” has allowed me to express all those feelings.
