“My Roots, My Memories, My Deep Green-1”, 2019, oil on canvas, 60 x 60 x 4,5 cm.
Sometimes it’s good to go back to your roots. I remember these lands from my childhood. My father was born and raised in the city of Rize from Black Sea region of Turkey. The most greenest place in Turkey. It is not that hard to see the different varieties of green, I’d say it’s deep green and also all colors of green. There are some green velvet hills still alive in my memories.
