A New Beginning
Stitching and Painting on Textile Material

Recent series of Koc "A New Beginning" aims to picture a series of new works which will be focusing on a light coloured, happy atmospheres, which are almost a holiday scene.

This vibrant atmosphere reflects dreams and hopes of young immigrant population which are longing to be free from the concerns, responsibilities and burdens of his/her/their own cultures.

As migration process is a lot more complicated -according to artist's own experiences- than these daydreamer mind set, paintings get wildly colourful.

This new series nourishes itself from Berlin's short summer period and, turns the longer "summer waiting period" to a performative distraction.

And chose of the silky material as a painting ground, responds the need for a more slippery base, which fits perfectly the notion of temporary summer period and endless hoping process in life.

A New Beginning, continuing series, invites stitches and original found fabrics to its body as they accompany the opposed feelings such as volatility and steadiness in life...
