‘In my drawing-paintings and fabric works, I describe the cumulative effects of this time and what it has accumulated, through the transformation of images of accumulated garbage/waste. Using materials such as pencil, charcoal, graphite and colored pencils, ink, oil and acrylic paints, fabric, I make large-scale drawing-paintings with gestures. At first glance, the visual evoking any representation of nature is the abstracted and transformed traces of garbage heaps stacked on top of each other.’ Tuğçe Diri
