Difficult Balances - The Original
An unframed 160 x 120 cm original artwork by Coskun Demirok.
It’s about the balance, not only in the sense of meditation, but also physically, how we move, communicate in daily life or in our relationship. I worked out this painting as if I would have speech and tried to weight every single touch of the pastel stick on the canvas. The complicated relation between the lines and colours of this work is also its content.
It is painted in the manner of a huge sketch. According to my personal mentality I used to work very fast and energetic. I painted with oil colours, changed to acrylics and experienced a lot. After years - I was looking for a new medium which contains a certain materiality - I started with oil sticks on canvas. It was a sudden change and I had discovered a new possibility of expression. But the main thing was that I had to slow down my steps, especially on big sizes of canvas.
