'Water–level' | 'Su týrasý'
acrylic on canvas, 2008, 130 - 150 cm

A painting, a statement.
A statement about the drinking- and wastewater situation in Cappadocia Turkey, where I live and work, which is out of balance.
The work has been exhibited in the 3d Contemporary Art Festival Mustafapasa 2008, as an awareness contribution to the theme WATER!=BRIGHT? SU!=PIRILTI?

Therefore the water in 'Message in a bottle' is leveled, but the paintings are hanging out of balance.
