Emel Gülsoy
(02.07. - 11.07. 2010)

I graduated 1971 from the Department of Mathematics of the Middle East Technical University. I started painting in 1982 during my student years, and commenced working in the Ankara State Painting and Sculpture Museum, in Orhan Çetinkaya's Painting Workshop, Kayıhan Keskinok's Art and Manufacturing Studio and the Still- Life Painting Studio of Evita Haluk. I am a member of the Ankara Women Painters Association and have participated in group exhibitions of the above mentioned associations and studios. Until today I opened eight individual exhibitions and commence my in my own studio.

The most beautiful subject for me is nature. I am affected very much by autumn and its colours. It is aware of its melancholy beauty and I try to capture my impressions by keeping its light and balance in the foreground and by transferring myself, "Emel", into my paintings.

My materials are oil and acrylic paint, tar and charcoal pencil, sometimes all of them combined. I like to create different textures on my work surfaces and often use 'claire obscure / cameieu' techniques. All these various materials and methods differ from canvas to canva and burlap to burlap and do not only offer me diverse surfaces but makes working with them to an adventure.

The olive tree as symbol of health, peace, and immortality and flowers.
