Ekrem Yalcindag's visual language is the ornamental idiom. Yet no line, no form and no pattern with which he spreads a network over the canvas repeats itself. With a razor-thin brush, size 0, the artist applies layer upon layer of luminescent paints, creating ornamental images with a unique fine relief structure. It is a complex process that often takes several months. Yalcindag's painting thus approaches such old artistic techniques as embroidery and mosaic, and adapts these to a new, contemporary form of expression.
