“I find that the figure of a woman is, aesthetically, enough to describe anything”
Attracting attention with the female figures she uses in her designs, Başak Erdemir is drawing on plates and ceramics, as well as canvas and stone.
Her female figures have lively colours, sometimes complemented with strong lines, and reflect comedic or dramatic moods. Creating at her workshop, Floripa Art Works, Başak Erdemir describes her creative process as follows. “I find that the figure of a woman is, aesthetically, enough to describe anything. The existence of women add colour and motion to life. When I look at drawings from the past, the women were leading the scene – and they’re at the front of the stage now, as well. Everything I draw has a history, because my drawings reflect the mood of what I have lived or experienced, today or in the past. Currently, I have been using clay and fabric more than pen and paper. The clay allows me to shape what I have in mind in a three-dimensional process; just getting immersed in this material brings me to another world.”
