Art Description

Painting: Oil, Gesso and Paper on Canvas.

It is a mixed media on canvas. In addition to intensive oil, there is a small piece of paper used on the canvas. The painting shows a wall in one of the islands of Istanbul, the wall of an old building. The writing on the wall is a poem in Turkish about an island, birds but hardly readible. The purpose of these words is not to give a message but rather a reflection of the memories disappearing.
Still the part of the poem appearing on the painting is:
"There are days when I pack up and leave
In the smell of the nets pulled out of the sea
Drifting from this island to that
In the trail of the shearwaters".

It is a diptic, each with a size of 160X100 cm's and will be shipped in two pieces in one box. The collector should hang them on the wall next to each other( with no space in between) as shown in the photo.
