Galeri Nev continues the new season with Elvan Alpay’s exhibition entitled “Dream-Forest”.
The artist, renown for her installations challenging the contradiction between the minimalism and the “kitch”, this time carries her particular language on to the canvas. In her recent works, which she creates by using experimental collage techniques, Alpay reflects our inner world with images that are familiar to us, yet ones that we do not come across very frequently. She takes us on a journey at the deep crevices of our spiritual world through magical creatures and plants that have captured our visual world since our childhood.
Elvan Alpay graduated from the Painting Department of Marmara University in 1986. After working at Salzburg Academy for a short period of time, she returned to Marmara University to complete her Master's Degree. First exhibition of Elvan Alpay's works was held in 1990 at the Zon Gallery in Ankara, run by curator Döne Otyam. This was followed by personal exhibitions at Galeri Nev Ankara and Istanbul, in addition to the Galerie Le Monde de L’Art, Paris. She also took part in group exhibitions in Paris, Cologne, London, Düsseldorf and New York.
Alpay is represented in the many private and public collections in Turkey as well as in the colelction of The Fondation Cartier. She continues to work in Istanbul.
Alvan Alpay’s “wonderland”, at Ankara Galeri Nev will remain open until November 18.
