Burçak Bingöl’s works reflect her dense cultural heritage and her continued fascination with patterns. Through her labor-intensive process of tracing, copying and reconstructing she adopts an analytical approach to ornamentation. Bingöl’s drawings convey an unusual sense of order, although they are largely made up of non-symmetrical lines and patterns. The works are psychological landscapes that hover between abstraction and representation, seduction and repulsion, mysticism and consumption that both embrace and disregard Eastern and Western traditions. Bingöl is also known for her ambitious work in ceramics, which both questions and expands the Western canon inviting a viewer to a re-consideration of the divide between art vs craft and high vs low. Burçak Bingöl (b.1976, Görele), she lives and works in Istanbul. She has been included in many group exhibitions. Her work is in many private and public collections in the US, Europe and the Middle East.
