METİN ÇELİK: “CHAOS - COSMOS” EXHIBITION

Metin Çelik, Capital 3, 2016, 145x190 cm.
Painter Metin Çelik will be on the stage with his first solo exhibition after eight years, between the dates 10th April- 1st May at MERKUR Gallery, Istanbul.

With his exhibition named “Chaos - Cosmos” by reading the grift construction of the nature and human in the context of contrast, the artist is representing the relation of place and figure with a metaphysical aesthetic. In the paintings after where the reality is broken and manipulated, they are covering a new form and offers us an atmosphere which contains magical reality… They go after a dream and transform into another dream.

Metin Çelik, when he is reflecting the rhythm of contrasts that we are facing in the life, he’s spelling these words: “Order (cosmos) and disorder (chaos) describes the universe in the most essential stage. One creates another and chaos dominates again. This vicious circle is one of the codes of our existence in the micro level. What I do is to transfer this balance on the canvas by using the concepts, forms and colours…”

METİN ÇELİK BIO
He was born in Adana, Turkey in 1985. In 2009 graduated from Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University. While studying at the university, the artist was Assistant of prominent Turkish artist Ömer Uluç for three years. He opened his first solo exhibition in 2009. He started master programme in Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University in 2013 and at the moment he is writing a thesis on the aesthetics of Bertolt Brecht.
In the works of Metin Celik which are based on the relation between time, space and figure; the metaphysical aesthetic of the form is the element which is represented firstly. In the paintings, where the figures are formed on the deprivation of human life,  there’s a holy transformation is looked for on human body .
Deprivation of time, deprivation of the feeling… The figures who are purified from mimics and gestures, are left alone and their action space is got tight and deprivised from the soul… This makes them as an ordinary object.
A table or a seat… In this case, Kafka’s “Transformation” ‘s character Gregor Samsa’s transformation into an insect is an important relation which refers to the subtext of the paintings.
In those works which shows us that we are an ordinary creatures across the nature, the relationship of  “subject and object” is dealed again. All images which are meeting on a floor of contrasts creates an expression of alienation on the audience.
This understanding helps us to see the ‘’Brecht kind of aesthetic’’ which gives priority to the rational approach than emotional approach which is against of the idea of ‘’Catharsis’’.

METİN ÇELİK: “KAOS-KOZMOS” SERGİSİ
Ressam Metin Çelik, 8 sene sonraki ilk kişisel sergisi ile 10 Nisan-1 Mayıs tarihleri arasında Merkur’de sanatseverlerin karşısında olacak.

“Kaos-Kozmos” adını verdiği sergisiyle, doğa ve insanın girift yapısını kontrastlar bağlamında okuyan sanatçı, zaman, mekan ve figür ilişkisini metafizik bir estetikle ortaya koyuyor. Gerçekliğin kırıldığı, manipüle edildiği ve sonucunda yeni bir form alan bu resimler, büyülü gerçekliği barındıran bir atmosfer sunuyor bizlere... Bir düşün izinden gidip başka bir düşe dönüşüyor. 

Metin Çelik, hayatın içinde karşılaştığımız zıtlıkların ritmini resimlerine yansıtırken şu sözleri dile getiriyor: “Düzen(kozmos) ve düzensizlik(kaos) en temelde içinde olduğumuz evreni tanımlar. Biri bir diğerini yaratır ve sonra kaos tekrar hakim olur. Bu döngü bana kalırsa varoluşumuzun mikro düzeyde kodlarından biridir. Benim yaptığım, bu dengeyi kavramlar, form ve renkler üzerinden tuvale aktarmak... ”

Sanatçının son dönem işlerinin yer aldığı “Kaos-Kozmos” sergisinde, doğanın mutlak gücünü ve insanın varlık mücadelesini, uykuyla uyanıklık arası bir gerçeklikte izliyor olacağız. Sergi 1 Mayıs’a kadar Merkür Galeride izlenebilinir.
