Kemal Seyhan

Kemal's paintings on canvas are built not like a painting, but like sculptural constructions on a wall. His work is laborious. The texture produced by paint endlessly gridded onto the canvas is fundamental to the surface of Seyhan's painting. The peaks and troughs of paint hardened into graphite ridges across the canvas feel both organic and digital. Kemal dubs this repeated method of painting "horizontal-vertical-color-intensification," and is the composition of a fascinating body of logical work that fulfills the viewers' tactile cravings.
