From Chemistry to Alchemistry, painting by Cigdem H. Yorgancioglu
This a virtual tour of esence of her life. Part of her wisdom and emotions reflected on canvas with her fingers .She is up to born ..
It was the time of flower child. Therefore ,she was called by a name of a wild and artistic flower usually found in the mountains. Her sudden movements caused earthquakes and she tasted the sweet smell of art as her first baby food. She grew up in a seashell and she will be waxed at the end with her art. Actually she has possession of nothing ,except herself like everybody else does if they notice it. So she is, was and will be an ordinary and splendid human being.
