Turkey-series by Liz Strick

Turkey was the start of my professional artist career.

The project

My career as a professional artist started in 1990 at the studio of Orhan Taylan in Istanbul,Turkey. I visited his studio on a daily basis and studied there for a period of 3 years.

At the end of this period I had my first solo show in the Akbank Sanat Galerisi in Bebek, Istanbul.

A Testimonial

Liz Strick is very successful in establishing a rhythm with her spatula technique and it is interesting to notice how she achieves lyrical effects unexpected from such a hard and unforgiving tool. Perhaps this comes from the joy of having found the right technique to release the emotions pent up in her heart and waiting to be expressed.
