Nazlı Gürlek Hodder

Fertile Void I & II & III & IV
Acrylic paint, linseed oil, collage on paper 
45 x 61 cm each

Fertile Void is a series of 4 combining painting and collage on paper. In these meticolous and detailed compositions figures take shape and evolve seemingly through a dance between the polarities. Moons, suns, phallic symbols and feminine elements come together to form a chaotic and undifferentiated field from which anything can emerge.
