Yusuf Aygeç (1989, Istanbul), who uses an expression that considers the consciousness of collective memory in his recent paintings, questions pure human nature and elemental counterparts with the emotion underlying his works, even though he has removed the figure from the center of fiction. It bases this questioning on the technical and conceptual structure of the painting, and examines it under two main headings as seen and felt. While the penture technique and color palette he used in his previous series vary with the topics he handles, more combative brushstrokes and layers go beyond the relief effect and open the doors of pictorial sculpture to the audience. While Aygeç's search for colors continues her adventure in pastel integrity, the flash tones she uses show her questioning of pigments that are invisible to the eye and hidden in nature and the universe.
