Dec 15 - 25 : OSMAN KETEN - Art Exhibition ‚Metaphor‘ at EMAA

By Heidi Trautmann


Metaphor… a metaphor for Osman Keten’s philosophy of life, for his concern for his country.... for the interconnections between nature and the Ego. By invisible threads we are connected to everything around us, in his art this is made visible, we cannot escape, we are earthlings bound to earth.


He took a handful of earth, smelled and tasted it, breathed it…. it is my home, the soil I live by, the earth I live on and I see what happens with it… with the knowledge of misuse in times before him, in times during his life time, war and hate in the back of his mind, in his nostrils….and he took the soil and made art of it, beautiful art that makes us think, that makes us aware that the eleventh hour has arrived.


I have been visiting Osman Keten’s art studio many times and so I saw the development of his last project he is going to show us in December at EMAA (European Mediterranean Art Association) in Nicosia with the opening on December 15, (see the poster). The artist friends that came with me were equally moved by his thought to bring us our earth closer to our hearts and minds.


Osman Keten’s love for experimental work, combined with perfect execution, makes his art very dear to me, very exciting; he does never stand still and he probes into fields no one has entered before. A must see for everyone who is interested in art. 

The opening is on Dec 15 at 19:00 hrs; opening times on weekdays:  10:00 - 13:00 and 15:00 - 18:00 hrs; on Saturdays: 10:00 - 13:00 hrs. 
The Art Centre is behind Deniz Plaza in Nicosia.
