Canan Tolon: You Tell Me

Sept 6, 2019 – Feb 2, 2020
Asmalı Mescit, Meşrutiyet Cd. No:99, 34430 Beyoğlu/İstanbul, Turkey

A quick glance doesn’t cut it with the paintings of Turkish artist Canan Tolon. Blurring the line between the real and the illusory, her work demands long looking. “You Tell Me” focuses on the interplay between nature and architecture in Tolon’s drawings, photographs, paintings, and mixed media. Construction and destruction, death and regeneration: these are her themes. —J.V.
