Belgin Bozsahin was born and brought up in Istanbul, Turkey and has been living in London for almost three decades. She exhibited in Istanbul, London, Bergen and on the QE2 liner. Many of my works are in private collections in Turkey, UK, Ireland, Portugal, Oman, Sydney and the USA.
Drawing on the themes of existence, self and identity I create sculptural ceramic works, installations and wall pieces. Working with such powerful themes, I am able to draw on personal understanding and knowledge that helps me relate and communicate with others. My work examines the notion of continuing evolution and change; that things are not perfectly smooth, spotless or still. It is about the contrast between inside and out and the tension this creates.
I look for what is most alike between us as opposed to differences because I feel this is where we meet most easily. My work is about giving voice to this inner unity and indicating that the visible outer shell, with courage and clarity, can be penetrated. I aim to achieve a sense of hope and beauty that is common to us all. I want to touch the human heart.

I am an Arts4Giving artist, which supports peace and humanitarian projects around the world.
In recent years I have been working to create surfaces with layers and textures in order to capture a sense of accumulation and seeking to get a sense of sight into hidden spaces on surfaces. This has evolved into the making of several collections within the category of the wall pieces.
