Selin Melek Aktan
A circular rhythm distinguishes Selin Melek Aktan’s stunning celestial constructions, abstract bursts of color with cinematic warmth. Indeed, the temperament of these textured abstractions evoke the film stock emulsion works of abstract cineaste Stan Brakhage. Mercurial, fire-breathing eyes of hurricanes and tornados erupt and twist across the picture plane in rich oranges, reds, and black. Amongst hinted outlines of dark trees and exploding galaxies, Aktan’s circular motif reigns, a reminder of the ever-revolving circle of life. Aktan has exhibited work in her native Istanbul, and across the globe in Greece, Bulgaria, Switzerland , Paris, Italy, and the U.S. Of her artistic inspiration she says, “I traveled to the four corners of the earth, and each place I visited added to my desire for unique artistic expression. Wherever I went, I found new influences directing my brush strokes or guiding my hands as I worked at my paintings or sculptures.” The results of her dedication are wonderful works of astounding temperament and power.
