Semih Zeki

About

Born on 1981 in Bolu, Semih Zeki graduated from Marmara University Faculty of Fine Arts Painting
Department. In the paintings by Semih Zeki, who completed his master’s degree at Işık University
Graduate Program in Art Theory and Criticism, we predominantly see architectural structures, which
he messes with, and changes by bringing them side by side, as well as dynamic transparent forms
carried within masses and lines intruding into the form. Meanwhile, nature is sometimes a direct and
sometimes a null subject in the paintings by the artist. His works, which make us probe on a process
of chaos made up of overlapping layers, but still created in quiet and wide spaces away from chaos,
are important in the sense that they show how time is shaped. The structure fictionalized by Semih
Zeki based on architectural forms, who probes on architectural structures, breaks them into pieces
and reassembles them in his works as if examining the human anatomy and thus builds a constantly
reproducing and evolving language, specifies the point of origin of his paintings presented in the
exhibition. Semih Zeki, who says “Each layer coming over the previous one and changing it or
reducing its effect by covering it is similar to the images actualized in our daily life through mass
media.”, based on this fictionalization, tries to take a new look at the architectural structures which
are iconified in our day and a construction work left half finished which we pass by everyday. In the
paintings by Semih Zeki, overlapping layers underline the aspects such as each layer coming over the
previous one and changing it or reducing its effect by covering it and make references to the images
actualized in our daily life through mass media. The paintings which diverge from the point of origin
with every color, image or line added to the surface and take a completely different form, thus probe
on the change in human nature evolving day by day with the effects of thousands of images.
