Akin Yildirim - Works made of Copper
Akin Yildrim has, in my view, surrealistic tendencies. Yildirim works in metal, primarily copper. His work is figurative and abstractions learning towards the fantastic, the romantic, even the macabre.
His pieces in the show, "Faces" and "The Horn" both have an ancient look that is very disconcerting. Their presence is reminiscent of artifacts from some lost middle eastern culture. They both are mysterious and darky magical objects that have links to mysticism and the unconscious. (Frank Shifreen)
