About Lutfu kaplanoglu's paintings

.........The fact that Lutfu Kaplanoglu's understanding of art is based on human and nature takes the viewer on a unique journey that confronts lived experiences and aims to reach its essence. On this journey, he gives clues about the landscapes that appear in the minds of individuals as a reflection of his deep thinking.

.........The artist presents to the viewer on the axis of the "now", as a longer and clearer path, where the figures leave behind their past full of devotion and look to the future. In fact, this emphasizes what humanity needs most in every work, the power of hope.

.........Kaplanoglu, who, as a witness from within life, places the human stance towards life and dreams in lyrical landscapes with his storyteller style, transforms the thin lines drawn between going and staying into a tendency to go away from the crowd by depicting them with different light forms in the color blend.

.........Figures are sometimes seen alone and sometimes with companions.... These scenes, which are perceived as loneliness at first glance, begin to suggest the questioning attitude of individuals free from social burdens in the holistic evaluation of the paintings.

.........As a painter who has succeeded in adding silence to his paintings as if to say silence is the loudest scream, Lutfu Kaplanoglu promises to be a traveler of the inner world.
