Feride Demircan: New Work
Reception for the Artist: Friday, April 12, 6 to 9 pm 2013.
Exhibition on view April 8 – May 4 2013, by appointment only
Clamp Light Gallery is pleased to announce our new exhibition, Feride Demircan: New Work. Feride is an artist living and working in San Antonio, Texas and originally from Zile, Turkey.
Feride focuses on the commonalities between Native American People and Anatolian Shamanist People. Her current exhibition is a comparative study using handmade pigments and focusing on the shared historical adornments, embroideries and daily expressions of both cultures. Although these two cultures adopted their own artistic styles during their evolutions and were influenced by different faiths and civilizations, Feride emphasizes the similarities they share, compassion for nature, lifestyle, ceremony, and rich culture.
“Once upon a time, there was One Nation on One Continent, and this Nation had one land, but then they grew, they dispersed, and entered into disputes, eventually to become enemies.”
Feride has exhibited her work in numerous international exhibitions throughout the Middle East and most current in San Antonio, Texas. Recently, she held a workshop at the San Antonio Museum of Art where she demonstrated Turkish cut paper techiniques.
