Alper Emeklier often observes and simultaneously reveals the changes that take place in the process of time. There are all the three times present in his portraits; the past, the present and the future; the memory, the reality, and the unfinished dream; leaving the observer to interact with the dream oneself. They have an arresting presence, a combination of refinement, strangeness and compressed meaning that makes you stop and ponder.
At a glance, his new works recall abstract, real, unfinished and expressionist energetic actions with paint. His strokes and color nuance are derived from his experience watching the time trans- form, perhaps in a form, in art, representing in general human ́s resistance against impermanence. His work speaks of existence in proud, insistent, imaginative ways, touching repeatedly on the roots of existence and the acceptance of the present; a truth also in the face of socio-political reality of Europe in the face of present situation of refugees whose inner ordeals are now also a part of the national psyche.
