Özlem Günyol & Mustafa Kunt's works in the QNB Finansbank Collection
Özlem Günyol-Mustafa Kunt’s works from their Materialistic Paintings (2018–2020) series and Scheinbogen (2015) have been included in the QNB Finansbank Collection. Materialistic Paintings series comprises paintings representing coins from various currencies. Each painting consists of multiple squares of metallic powder where the size of each square represents the amount of the respective metal (iron, steel, copper, nickel, aluminum, zinc, tin etc.) used in fabrication of the coin. An aesthetic experience emerges at the intersection of the subject matter of these paintings, the materiality of them and the way this materiality is conveyed; as well as of abstract, avant-garde or structuralist art currents and economic, power relations.
