Recycled

• Have you ever wondered what would happen if the geometric fragments of abstract paintings escaped the flat canvas? Bahar Yurukoglu’s Neoscape series turns pieces of colored plastic into still lifes of intersecting planes and reflections. She builds on the legacy of still life painters such as Chardin and Cezanne who chose ordinary, everyday objects to experiment with light. Just as Chardin emphasized the beauty of a copper pot, Yurukoglu presents the playful and complex possibilities of plastic.
