Primary Gold

The portraits of this series are painted on yellow, blue and pink background, which give the series its name “Primary Gold”. While in the former series, Black Gold, I had painted only with golden colour and stamps, the pictures of this series are more experimental, incorporate white paint, pencils, gold leaves, butterflies and decorational elements.


While the words in the first golden series told the viewer something about the women’s lives, the use of words in this series happens more on a pictorical level: I pick one word or sentence that comes to my mind when thinking about the woman I portray and write it down repetitively.
