May 8 - 22 - Exhibition CELALETTIN TANDOĞDU - Unspoiled Nature

The exhibition "Unspoilt Nature" will be opened on Friday 8 May at 18:30 at the “ART STUDİO 110 “at Demak Business Center First floor no 110 at Mufti Ziyai Effendi Street near Selen Auto park behind the Main Post Office in Nicosie.


The venue is Feridun Isiman's Nicosia Workshop, art lovers will certainly know where it is. It is not the first time that Feridun invites artist friends to Cyprus, artists he meets on his numerous travels to art colonies, on events like conferences where he represents his country the TRNC. We do appreciate his efforts for doing so, it shows his open attitude towards art. We have spoken about this event and he sent me the information below.




There are different states of nature in his paintings;  seasons are changing ,the sun is shining on the fresh greens or everything is plunged into the hot colours of sunset; sometimes nature is silent or sometimes a

tornado  approaches with a  thundering sound.

Tandoğdu knows that producing an image or with his own words “reproducing the visible” is the most direct way of giving a message to the viewer .” Talking and writing are later developments in the

evolution of man. Prior to these developments man recognized his environment in a different way using his senses, an act of seeing. The visual perception is sometimes a kind of reflex but sometimes it is a choice one makes and moods and beliefs influence the perception of the visible .

What man perceives is an” image “ which is an interaction between thoughts and emotions.







The artist is living in İstanbul and this is his first visit and first solo exhibition in the T.R.N.C.

He has been at Yalova İnternational Art colony creating new paintings. He will be on our isand from 8 – 11 May 2009.

The exhibition will be inaugurated  at “ART STUDİO 110 “at Demak Business Center First floor no 110 at Mufti Ziyai Effendi Street near Selen Auto park behind the Main Post Office in Nicosia.

There will be 29 of his works in oil colour on canvas on display until 22nd of May 2009.

The opening cocktail is on 8th of May at 18.30 Friday.
