Mine Akın

Mine Akın’s sculptures stem from the endless forms the human body but mostly the female body can reach. What others see as a mountain of clay turns into forms filled with energy by the touch of her fingers as she is led into the midst of magical existence of other worlds. She creates what she feels using the relationship between emptiness and mass. She finalises her pieces as light and shadow becomes one with the mass itself. Her pieces have a main theme and that is “she” hence “woman”.
