Nakış Drawings (Babayan)


I made this series of drawings in 2012, reflecting back on the village of Babayan in Cappadocia, Turkey, where I had spent time as an artist-in-residence at the Babayan Culture House two years previously. The drawings recollect the processes and relationships between the landscape and the architecture of the village, but do so through the imagination of the textile and carving processes I worked with while there.
