OCTOBER 24 – NOVEMBER 25 2017 /// ÇAĞLA CABAOĞLU ART GALLERY
Bengüer who was born in Amasya, Turkey in 1960, worked for a while as a textile designer in Istanbul after graduated from the State Academy of Fine Arts. Later on, he focused on interior design and decoration.
The artist, whose a large part of works has been included also in private collections, is working not only on painting but on sculpture; while he carries the multilingualism of today’s creation to his works, he designs furniture in addition to making productions in these two disciplines.
Murat Bengüer said about his production:
“My works reflect my approach towards life and art… ‘less is more”.
In Bengüer’s works, in which lyricism makes itself apparent at his every brush stroke, it is not difficult to feel the dynamism progressing in an endless cycle particular to the abstract. Besides that, such works indicate a special language where the texture has been transformed into an expression on its own and the details have become evident and the minimal ones have reproduced the expression. That is the language of a partnership which is silent, wordless.. His language that does not need any other word, but is transformed into a testimony of a universal agreement, understanding and comprehension…
