figurative painter

PINAR TÜRE GÜRSOY

Currently based in Istanbul, my work takes inspiration from the rich colors & eclectic aesthetic within the ancient coastal cities of Anatolia. During my career, I developed a passion for the Atelier Movement. Recalling the ways and practices from Renaissance to late 19th-century, I attended workshops at various established artist studios in Istanbul and participated in life drawing workshops at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière, during my stays in Paris. However, I mostly work from memory and/or imagination from my studio in Istanbul. The nature of my work allows me to explore & travel to see great European museums, seeking rare objects and patterns to paint & record the history and legends embedded in my country's heritage. Recently, I lived in London for a year and immersed myself in the artifacts of the British Museum. Through my practice, I try to tell the story of my experience as a Turkish woman with a strong Aegean identity.
