Deniz Kireç's personal exhibition titled "Seascapes" met with art lovers at Pinelo Art Gallery on Friday, November 17, 2023.
Artist Kireç said, “I have an intuitive and expressionist understanding of art, so unconscious figures come to life on my canvases. Symbols representing figures belonging to my name, Deniz, take their place in my compositions. Like fish, whirlpools, algae, etc. I use gold leaf in my works. According to Jung, “Soul” is depicted in a circular form. Inspired by this, in my works, I symbolize the souls of living creatures with the golden circle and emphasize how valuable the soul is. “I invite art lovers to my exhibition to share my dreamy and inner journey in my works.” He expresses his thoughts with his words.
Deniz Kireç, who received his undergraduate education at Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University, Department of Industrial Design, completed his Master's degree in Design and Technology at Parsons School of Design in New York.
