Biography

Eylül Ceren Ersöz paints hyperreal reproductions of film stills from cinema classics, in oil paint. Primarily painting female protagonists in emotionally fraught circumstances, she has produced images of her subjects in interrogation rooms, watching parading soldiers during wartime, and lost in moments of self-doubt. Isolating the figures from their filmic contexts and transforming the women into icons of defiance in the face of adversity, Ersöz offers a vivid glimpse into the psychologies of her fictional subjects.
