Descrizione Opera / Biografia

Şebnem performs painting & ceramics art since 1999, establishing ArtePura Gallery-Atelier by 2010 in Moda - Istanbul running for two years. Currently she continues her artwork at home-atelier.
She performs ceramics as well as painting in pastel and paper collage. She works mostly with porcelain in ceramics, within search for extreme thinness and dangling forms. She cares for aesthetic results of imperfect forms coupled with hand-brushed glazing and gold luster. In painting and paper collage (paperie) she enjoys expressions of tranquility, daily basics of life and the dance of the color in the depth of nature. She uses natural and hand-produced media to directly connect the art observer to the feeling of the artwork.
Her main interests are light and nature’s reflections, appreciating the serenity of simplicity. In her works she emphasizes containment, peace, lightness in being, less & essence, grace, respect and diligent care.
She produces all artwork directly by hand yielding unique, non-reproducible, spontaneous and deliberately imperfect results.
