“The Lands of the Passion and Freedom”, 2019, oil on canvas, 102 x 76 cm.
The third and the last piece of the triptych express the love of the inhabitants of Istanbul Prince Island for the violet sunsets: “Vivid sunset colours”. We usually witness it in warm spring and summer times. Sometimes it shows itself in winter too, as a sign of very cold days before snow falls. The colours which rebounds from the ice crystals in the air warms my heart even in cold weather. While spreading the passion and the magic of the colour of the hills that I never know, my turquoise trees are rising upon the hills with the desire to set free that passion and magic.
