Esra Kizir Gokcen

Artist Bio

In the Sail to Hope Series, my inspiration is from migration and cultural diversity. People are being exposed to an extremely fast information exchange and our world is becoming smaller than ever while people from the growing countries, take life threatening risks to relocate. Looking for a hopeful future, away from the war or political corruption.

I make collages with maps and create a random reorder to emphasise the borders losing their meanings.

I have been using acrylic to have bold colours and spontaneous washes for a transparent multi layered effect. Finishing my works with determined small details in lines. Paper boats are the symbols to express the vulnerable, naive mindset which leads many people to a tragic end. I use bright colours referring to hope and various textures to represent the chaotic situation of the crisis.
