hüseyin arıcı 

Born in 1990 in Ankara, Hüseyin Arıcı has held 10 solo exhibitions between 2009 and 2023, shaping the titles of the series he's produced. Beyond his solo exhibitions, he has participated in numerous national and international group exhibitions, employing a range of materials like oil on canvas, installation art, polymer clay, acrylics, various modeling methods, ceramics, and paper pulp.


Texts and narratives serve as formal counterparts to his artwork, deeply ingrained in each piece. The artist is constantly busy writing down the thoughts that already exist, and these writings are fed by sociological events. As the discourse evolves alongside the selected artworks, the other parts of the series begin to form. His writings, akin to dialogues with the audience, unfold through various romantic narrative forms—stories, fables, poems, metaphorical texts.


Arıcı often embeds societal critique in his work. He focuses on individuals and societies that exploit life for personal gain, showing their lost moral values and tendencies towards hypocrisy and insensitivity. Additionally, he highlights those negatively affected by these behaviors. Arıcı addresses the misconceptions and lies prevalent in many areas of society, discussing imitations, lies, blindfolds, fictional tales, and both societal and individual attempts to distort truth. He reflects on experiences he's been exposed to or observed himself. In his recent works, he examines the selfish behaviors of people, especially in exploiting nature and art. He also touches on the so-called “perfect lies” of society that he has discerned from his personal insights.
