"Visions of My World"

Ward-Nasse Gallery is pleased to announce "Visions of My World", Gulgun (Gigi) Turker's first one-person show at the gallery.


The show runs from June 4th to June 30th, 2005. Please join us at the opening reception on June 4th, from 3-7p.m.

Gulgun (Gigi) Turker was classically trained in Turkey at the Istanbul University of Fine Arts. Turker is considered by many to be the "Turkish Degas" because of her elegant depiction of delicate female figures in motion- most often dancers. The dancers and female figures in her paintings mold the space with their bodies. The artist is able to translate this full-blown plasticity onto the flat surface. She uses techniques that create illusions of perspective and depth that are similar to the techniques that dancers use for creating illusions of space within physical movement. In motion or still, the portrayed female figures retain presence and grace.

Ward-Nasse Gallery is located in SoHo at 178 Prince Street, between Thompson and Sullivan. Take the N, R train to Prince Street, 1,9 train to Houston or the C, E train to Spring Street.
Hours: Tu-Sa 11-6, Su 1-6.
