Landscape of Pli
Her newest series, “Landscape of Pli” is a process of
exploring the hidden truth which is Seeing the Unseen, Hearing the Unspoken,
but also a spiritual journey of discover oneself at the end who knows nothing
like Socrates said. To explore this, her work begins from the concept of
‘wrinkles’ (hereinafter referred to as ‘Pli’) often mentioned by Gilles
Deleuze, a post-structuralism philosopher who explored the metaphysical
relationship between ‘identity’ and ‘difference’.
Driven by the desire to contextualize
this concept of ‘Pli’, she uses the fragments obtained from deconstructing her
figurative paintings to create art that reinvents narrative and redefines
meaning. For this, the collage technique
was used dynamically and colorfully, and through the use of juxtaposition, she
tried to expose the beauty in chaos.
This Landscape is created by fragments of various shapes extracted from
the original are placed in reverse front and back, the inside and outside are
flipped, and the visible becomes invisible.
Many Plis, stacked on top of each other,
are irregularly warped, jagged and connected layer by layer. This multi-layered
landscape is filled with ambiguous images of fragmented memories or senses,
sometimes appearing like a thousand-year-old plateau where layers of time have
been piled up.
To complete the psychological landscape of the abyss,
dynamic energy is injected here through the careful use of saturated
technicolor elements. Images that have
absorbed color finally seem to come alive across the layers, then emerge as an
illusion, and then suddenly lose their shape due to different layers or play as
a different image than before. But they don’t come together to create a single
Through this approach, she wants to show
a journey in which images of multiplicity are connected to each other and
repeat explications and implications creating another difference, and then
re-creating themselves as something new. Above all, every image that completes
the “Landscape of Pli” is as fluid like water, allowing for multiple
interpretations, inviting viewers to peel back the many layers and will help
them to discover the wise man’s wisdom underneath in the end :
“I know that I know nothing.”
NOTE. Derived from the Latin root Plic, which
means to fold, bend, Pli is a fashion term for wrinkles or folds that occur on
clothes or fabrics due to external friction.
