Tuğçe Diri, Another World Tuğçe Diri describes her work as an effort to place her vital reality plastically, which is based on her experience and the geography that she lives in. The artist works with different mediums such as drawing on paper, canvas and lace, acrylic on canvas. Although the artist uses contemporary forms of expression, traditional arts are the starting point of the production process of her.
The search for a link between the traditional culture and the contemporary production practices can be observed in the works of paper works, influenced by the art of illumination. The series entitled Another World, which could be described as timeless, space-less but familiar, creates a bright, utopian and sometimes childish pictorial language.
Her works are influenced by Ursula K. Le Guin and by reinterpreting the forms in nature, there are ambiguous realms that the tissues expand on the surface. The bright focal points in the vague areas of her paintings span the audience in a talismanic manner, as if there were life energies from the forms themselves. The final series of canvas and lace entitled “Symbiotic” as the last stage of the whole process, conveys a structure where the patterns and laces can exist together.
