“Noman's Land - Paths of Lost Riders” 

Abstract Landscape series express a kind of bridge between time, nature and the sensible. Since the launch of our exhibition idea, Studio ii had the pleasure of working closely with a photographer and an architect bringing to life special pictures and ideas for exhibition. It's about time and timelessness, freedom and peaceful possibility. 

Imren Iyem


"My work is about freedom and peaceful possibility. We all are artists, freedom beings. My personality and ethnic background plays a part in the process of developing new ideas and finding inspiration to create authentic and uplifting pieces. My paintings are inspired by many facets of ancient civilizations of East Turkey where I was born. A blend of personal dream fragments, childhood memories, and some fantasy invite the viewer to discover that nature has such richness and variety in cultural and natural resources. My paintings are abstract transforming memories into moments of tranquil introspection. Although abstract art movement has lots of female practitioners, this is less so in the country I am living.  My style interacts with the subconscious when I paint a canvas that translates the spiritual and emotional state of that moment as if listening to music."
