Ferhat Özgür


In Ferhat Özgür’s works he wants to reveal the inner depths of his subjective world as well as today’s social, cultural and political geography we live in. The codes he has been using are interpretations about both his own universe as well as the outer world.  But sometimes, materials which he uses may also be more complex than the metaphorical meanings in the work itself. Therefore because of the excessive style, disclosing itself excessively and questioning similar problems and creating same answers in the viewer’s mind, he thinks that it carries some risks. Since the signs in the works of art have not always the purpose of giving a message, as in the sign language and traffic symbols, they cannot be described in a certain way and neither be classified nor be understood easily due to their nature.
