MinXus Mail Bag: Painting by Derya Avci (Elazig, Turkey)

Derya Avci 8.3.2018 - 1

Mail art by Derya Avci (Elazig, Turkey)

 

If memory serves, this is the first time we have ever featured art from Turkey on our humble and ever-so-provincial MinXus-Lynxus blog. Of equal importance, we welcome the artist – Derya Avci – with a warm welcome, a secret MinXus handshake and a profuse thanks (!!!) for this most beautiful painting.

We’re sure Tenderfoots will share our view that this work would be at home in an art museum or a very fine gallery. Derya Avci is a subtle and skilled expressionist painter. Yet the work is also very much in the egalitarian spirit of mail art. Derya Avci painted this on sturdy but light cardboard! The piece is relatively small, given it would easily succeed as a much larger painting on canvas, and measures approximately 3 X 9 inches.
