Uysal show at Pi Artworks
Pi Artworks Istanbul presents Mehmet Ali Uysal’s third solo exhibition “Painting,” which opened yesterday. The paintings in the exhibition are all on display, but are not immediately visible; rather, they exist in the space between “presence” and “absence.” Uysal explores and experiments with the perception of the viewer and provokes the audience to visualize these embedded works in the wall. In fact, the gallery space is rendered completely white, calling for the viewer’s eyes to slowly discover Uysal’s embedded installations. These are made of plaster, as is the gallery itself, and appear in a variety of blank bulky renaissance frames of different forms and sizes.
