Artist Statement

Sculptor Belgin Yucelen

Art needs to be beautiful, but beauty can come from ugliness as long as it is presented poetically.

My art is a poetic response to specific issues, current events and disappearing moral values. It is a way to cherish the present moment and our past. I aim to create aesthetically beautiful, compelling and thought provoking art in a simple and quiet manner.

Art provides the imagery that allows me to present my ideas. My art changes depending on what I want to say, and its form is dictated by the subject matter. It could end up as an installation, sculpture, print, movie, or audio.
