Original painting for sale
There’s a magic in the landscape of Cappadocia. It’s a testament to the living earth, with massive volcanic formations, carved by the elements into the unique fairy chimneys that populate the valleys. They were further shaped by man, who carved homes into these towers, keeping the original shape while adding a unique layer to their beauty. The rocks inspired my paintings, but I didn’t want to paint only what was there. These rocks came alive in my mind; they had personalities. And so I drew them not as the weathered formations that exist, but as living organisms that twist and merge, that form into impossible shapes. This to me is the spirit of the region, an area that is rich in both natural and cultural beauty.
