Sera Uzel to Exhibit at FADA, March 24

Bilkent University's Faculty of Art, Design, and Architecture is hosting an exhibition of the work of Turkish artist Sera Uzel. Sera Uzel was born in Sivas in 1958. He received the first art lessons from his father, the renowned Turkish impressionist painter Mehmet Uzel.

Uzel has had many solo exhibitions and has participated in many group exhibitions since 1984, including shows held at the Friedrich Nauman Foundation, Ankara (1997), Anadolu Ajansı Sanat Galerisi, Ankara (2002), Schneidertempel Art Center, İstanbul (2003), and Dışişleri Bakanlığı Sanat Galerisi, Ankara (2010). In addition to the traditional method of oil on canvas, Uzel also works with mixed media and prefers to produce works in series. Some of his best known series include "Magnafica Comminita Di Péra" (1993), "Sergüzeşt-i Hayatım" (2004), and "Su" (2007).

The artist's illusionistic figures are represented among intertextual layers of paint and pattern while continually reminding us of the Turkish cultural mosaic.

The cocktail opening will be held on Thursday, March 24 at 5:30 p.m. at the FADA exhibition hall.
The exhibition may be viewed weekdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
