These were the works I submitted to the Baker Museum in Naples, Florida. I came across this open submission for the Florida Contemporary Show because of Dismaland. Paco Pomet is having a show there this month. While I was digging around on their website for details on his show, I stumbled upon the call for submissions.
So, in a way, Banksy is responsible for me putting my stuff out there.
Wow, very nice, shadynasty, expecially Classmate and Galata. And thank you for the detail pictures. How long does it take to build one of these? Very nice details. Best of luck for your submission, I really hope you will make it.
Yes an interesting city indeed, it's nice to see another person on here so familiar with Istanbul. I instantly recognised your Bosphorus picture for what it was, before I read its title. My time is usually spent on the right hand side
Suit, these collages take quite a while to complete. Some longer than others. I've gotten much faster in the last year. I am getting better at planning, that has made all the difference.
geswrk, I spent two years in Yenikoy (Eurpoean side) and two years in Uskudar (Asian side). They were two very different experience, as I am sure you know. On the collage, this difference is reflected in the choice of materials. A distracting mix of images on one side, an Ottoman-era prayer book on the other. The Bosphorus is made up of Turkish Lira, and glows in the dark! Get it? LOL

Did you really? That's very interesting.i visited Istanbul for th first time last December,staying in beyoglu, and I loved every minute of minute of it. To use the cliche, a city of contrasts. Bloody great modern art gallery, though. Just big enough to not be bored...
Istanbul Modern is worth seeing, with spectacular views over the Bosphorus.The Metro under the sea is only recently finally up and running, so I think last December it wasn't quite ready. Much simpler than having to cross the congested suspension bridges.
