Belgin Bozsahin was born and raised in Istanbul, Turkey, and lived and worked in London for over three decades. Many of her works are in private collections internationally and nationally.
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 draw from a personal understanding and knowledge that helps her relate and communicate with others.
Her work examines continuing evolution and change so that things are not perfectly smooth, spotless, or still. It is about the contrast between inside and out and the tensions this creates. For several years now, Belgin has been creating surfaces with layers and textures to capture a sense of accumulation and get a sense of sight into hidden spaces on the surface. This has evolved into making several collections within the category of wall pieces.
