Aylin Yavuz

Aylin Yavuz (born in June 1983) studied art at the universities of Siegen, Dortmund and Istanbul.
Since 2005 she has been making contributions to the arts with videos, graphics and paintings.
In her drawings and paintings bodylines come together into a kind of net, based on the idea that everything is connected and functions in the end as a signpost in the picture. The artist lends the body and its sexuality a certain irony and a touch of humor. Abandoning from her work any striking and dramatic effects and immediacy accounts for the viewer’s calm and contemplative yet light-hearted spirit.
Aylin Yavuz removes the common concept of beauty and shows a different perception,
beyond the criteria of conventional aesthetics.
