Remains of Yesterday
“If Ozlem Kalkan Erenus were a film director, the name of the film could be “Post-Existence.” Her paintings, which render every stage of this existence into indicators throughout their creation stages, aim to simultaneously evaluate the reality and idealism of “existence” within the artist’s own way.
“Every face is a trail, every trail is a sign.” So logic suggests that every face is a sign. Here, while asking what a “face” is, another entirely different situation emerges: Everything that exists in the world of phenomena has a face. Then, as a representation of existence, those faces can be expanded in time and can be related to a flow. It can even be argued that this flow brings out a thought of a cinematographic dimension.”
Written by Özkan Eroğlu for the catalog “The Trail of Time” that accompanies an exhibition by Özlem Kalkan Erenus, which will be opened at the Prof. Dr. Yusuf Vardar MÖTBE Cultural Centre Art Gallery, Ege University
