Turkish Artist Profile
A new artist profile is up for the month at artquotes.net. Turkish artist Gizem Saka is an emerging painter currently working in New York.
Woman with Apple is a work that seems to sit happily between Eastern and Western cultures, just like her hometown of Istanbul. The style has elements of Picasso and Matisse, but there are also decorative elements that could be interpreted as Turkish, with the twirls and stylized vines bordering a corner of the work.
