This is 5 Questions. Each week, we send five questions to an artist featured in Under the Radar, our weekly email highlighting the best art on the ArtSlant network. This week we seek answers from Gulten Imamoglu.
What are you trying to communicate with your work?
My main concern is “Time.” The Time God is the maestro of everything.
Mandisire, 2010, Mixed media on canvas
What is an artist’s responsibility?
The artist summons the unseen and unknown. They prepare the ground for scientific discoveries.
Show us the greatest thing you ever made (art or not)?
My most influential work for me is Forbidden. For now, it is turning point for my artworks.
Forbidden, 2010, Mixed media
Tell us about a work you want to make but never will:
I want to equalize all the people in the world. But there is no divine power to do that.
Who are three artists we should know but probably don’t?
H.R. Giger, Van Gogh, Gustav Klimt
