Statement

Defined by a loud palette and a sense of sarcasm, Recep Batuk’s paintings juxtapose mundane objects, vignettes from everyday life with storybook characters and outlandish fantastic elements in seemingly irrelevant combinations that lack a sense of worldly time and place. The explosion of color and inanity sets the tone for Batuk’s world, which is simultaneously dark, raucous, obsessive, sophisticated, satirical, humorous, whimsical, playful and juvenile. A sense of contradiction is  evident in the artists’ use of traditional, Renaissance inspired compositional devices on one hand and a naïve painting style on the other.
