Animated absurdity and Ekşioğlu’s artworks ⇒ Kirno Sohochari

Reader’s short note: Today’s post is exceptional in a sense that, today we try to get closer with some artworks of Turkish artist Gürbüz Doğan Ekşioğlu. Art lovers in Turkey and elsewhere are familiar with his name as a cartoonist and cover designer of numerous books and journals. Ekşioğlu’s cartoon works received recognition of cartoon lovers and he rewarded several times for his animated artworks. His cover-arts also published in New Yorker and Forbes magazine more than once time.

… Ekşioğlu’s artwork is not influenced me to be staying lonely, and or, he doesn’t provoke me feeling imprisoned in the animated cage of life; instead of, his artworks messaging to me that: life is an absurd animation, in where our body-mind distorted by the opposite binary; where we desired or hoped one and get the reverse.
… … …

Above information (which I collected from Wiki and his personal website) told very little about Ekşioğlu’s self-implied style, allegorical absurdity, surrealistic minuscule, and philosophical ambiguities. The alienation of life, which he animated in his canvas, reflected the fragments of our cartoon-like lifestyle. Each artwork is a mixture of varied cartoonish activities in our life, which tried to attach itself with the surreal ambiguities, we have made in our civilized decor.

Once we have made this life glazing, we have made ourselves animated for us, and now glancing the whole animation with pity eyes; in where the meaning of life and the ways of passing this life is ambiguous with a lot of question and contradiction. Human civilization is dialectical by satire and ambiguity; where human-soul is looking more sympathetic than anything else. Ekşioğlu tried to depict his narration, standing on the pathetic realization of the fact. He is not vocal, not high-pitched, not very tonal or thick, but eager to hunt the journey of life from the very dawn of civilization to the present and upcoming future of the world; in where he doesn’t try to hide his renounce towards the mechanized advancement of human nature.

… It seemed to me that, his figurative texture is ironic rather than poetic, which maybe philosophizing life to the self-made destruction; in where, we simper to see our destiny that, we made this life by our own hand to get comfort, and now killed the comfort zone by the self-hand too.

Art lovers may be treated his surreal outfit as an explosion of satirical agony; but to me, his satire is suited better to the sadness and discomfort of our animated life.

In his canvas, we can laugh to see the cartoonist fate of human existence; can feel discontent to analyze the result of our mechanically advance bipedal life’s net outcomes in his canvas; we can laugh to see this; but the feeling of discomfort, repentance or compunction perhaps more penetrating than other imagery and feelings. It seemed to me that, his figurative texture is ironic rather than poetic, which maybe philosophizing life to the self-made destruction; in where, we simper to see our destiny that, we made this life by our own hand to get comfort, and now killed the comfort zone by the self-hand too.

Readers, I only tried to tell about my feeling but it may differ with you. I think it would be better to read his artworks according to your imagery and thoughts.
