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 she creates sculptural ceramic works, installations and wall pieces. Working with such powerful themes, enables Belgin to to draw from a personal understanding and knowledge that helps her relate and communicate with others. Her 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 tensions this creates.
In recent years Belgin has 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.
