Irem Arcasoy


''...childhood is a place between dream and reality, full of endless possibilities. Adult is nothing else than the infidelity to this childhood spirit.''

About the artist:

İrem Arcasoy is a Turkish artist born in İstanbul. Taking inspiration from personal memories along with observations from real life she creates as an artist of figurative style.  She imagines her figures to be fragments of an abstract narrative, never meant to be a direct representation of a specific person. Her work is known for her gentle pastel color palette. Her portraits address the vulnerability and strength of human condition that give people mystery, elegance and sincerity. Her delicate portraits need to reflect something of the past, convey an emotional investment or a moment of self reflection.  Their characters always intend that they are going through some kind of deep intemporality and longing where there is a life on the edge of the world that the universality of childhood meets.
