Rasim Aksan


Rasim Aksan (b. 1984, Osmancık) lives and works in Istanbul. Aksan possesses an
archive that is made up of thousands of images, compiled from the visual media and
including photographs of everyday events he deemed as interesting and which he took
himself. His works depict human figures and groups set in interiors. They question our
social interactions, the way we form interpersonal relationships, and build socio-
psychological structures in life. Various stories are depicted on them, ranging from
ordinary events to erotic interactions, shrouded continuously in a veil of mystery due to
their fragmental nature. In these paintings the spectator gives up his usual role of
being a passive recipient and comes to subjective conclusions by enacting the
presented events in his own mind. In his figurative and hyperrealist works produced by
his technical skills and fine craftsmanship Aksan’s works on canvas are created by
using oil and acrylic paint alongside calligraphy and marbling ink, with the latter applied
by airbrush. His works on paper showcase the additional use of pencils and crayons
and acrylic airbrush.
