Gül Durmayaz Güdücü

Kozmik Bağlantı 

Disiplin : Sergi 

Gül Durmayaz Güdücü akıştan beslenen, varoluşsal enlemlerde dolaşan, renklerin peşinde hem göze hem ruha hitap etmeyi ümit eden, daha çok soyut çalışmalar yapan bir ressam/ilüstratör. Festivalin görsel dünyasının kurucusu olan Gül’ün 'Kozmik Bağlantı’ sergisi festival boyunca Moda Sahnesi’nde gezilebilir. 

 

Kozmik Bağlantı

Bu sergideki eserler en basit haliyle bir insan olarak kendi varlığımın varoluşsal izdüşümlerinden oluşuyor. Kozmosun bin türlü halinin an be an içimden geçmesiyle oluşan dalgalanmaların, ben dediğim bir bilinç halinin üzerinde bıraktığı izler... Her saniye değişen bu manzaranın boya ve fırçalarla yakalanmasıyla oluşan, renklerin birbirleriyle, benimle ve en nihayetinde izleyicisiyle yaşadığı çarpışmayla oluşan kozmik bir bağlantının yansımalarıdır.
