Profile photo of Elvin Karaaslan

Elvin Karaaslan was born in İzmir, Turkey. After graduating with a Master of Fine Art (MFA), she is now pursing her Doctorate in Fine Art Education at Anadolu University, Eskişehir while also working as a research assistant in the Fine Art Education Department of Çanakkale Onsekiz Mart University.

The central theme of her work is the concept of perception, which she explores both in her academic work on Visual Culture and in her unique three-dimensional artworks.

Taking the role of the observer, her imagery captures simple but intriguing perspectives on people. As the viewer changes her perspective, the image and perception undergo changes as well.

This interaction and fragmentation exemplifies the dilemma of post-modern individuality. At the same time, the act of looking at static installation becomes an active decision and performance by the observer, which allows a communication between the work, its space and the viewers’ imagination.

Elvin Karaaslan wurde in Izmir, Türkei geboren. Nach dem Abschluss eines Malereistudiums mit dem Master of Fine Arts (MfA) arbeitet sie zur Zeit an ihrer Dissertation im Feld der Kunstpädagogik und als Wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin in der Onsekiz Mart Universität Çanakkale.

Das zentrale Thema ihrer Arbeit ist visuelle Wahrnehmung, welche sie sowohl ihrer akademischen Arbeit als auch mit ihrer mehrdimensionalen Malerei erforscht.

Ihre Werke dokumentieren alltägliche aber tiefgründige Perspektiven auf Menschen des Alltags. Durch den Wechsel seiner Position kann der Betrachter dabei immer wieder neue Details und Blickwinkel erkennen und so seine Wahrnehmung verändern.

Die Interaktion mit den Fragmenten macht die Identitätskrise des postmodernen Individuums sichtbar, während die Erfahrung des Werkes zu einem Dialog mit dem Betrachter wird. Die Wechselwirkung von Motiv, Raum und Beobachter geben dem statischen Kunstwerk eine neue, dynamische Erfahrungsebene.
