2002-04-15 until 2002-05-16
This exhibition of paintings by
FILIZ emma SOYAK
a journey celebrating growth, arrival,
variation, repetition, challenge, fusion, discovery, loyalty,
old boundaries and new horizons...
a cocktail of past, present and future
experiences and influences.
This exhibition of abstract paintings represents a mixer of Filiz emma Soyak's childhood in Belgium, Japan, her current life in the States as well as her Swedish and Turkish heritage. This exhibit will include many paintings from her 'FACES' series combining acrylic, washi paper, charcoal and pastels. Soyak explores the limit and the length to which she can vary one face from the other. A variation process yielding similar yet unique pieces-each with their own character.
Filiz Soyak currently lives in Boston and temporarily in Tokyo, gaining inspiration from music, people, sounds, smells and colors. At 22, she has a lot ahead of her, and this is just the beginning. Before graduating from the University of Vermont last May, she has been painting, drawing and creating ever since she was old enough to pick up a colored crayon. Soyak was born in Belgium, lived in Japan until a teenager and then moved to the States. The artists parents are Swedish and Turkish, a medley and fusion of different cultures has allowed her to explore many styles and tastes. This show illustrates the influences that have all come together.
