Mehmet Ali Uysal Art ( art now )

For Turkish artist Mehmet Ali Uysal’s space is paramount, hence the title of this body of work, ‘Space Matters’. Always concerned with how to reshape the space around him, in his art he has achieved this exploration seamlessly.
Uysal is making the invisible visible, by interconnecting art and its’ context. He reveals the space that surrounds the art work and seals it from the outer world. The walls of the gallery become porous and are not longer a limitation. They become part of the work. ?As for Lao Tse, which considered the utility of an object (wheel, vessel, house) depends on its’ empty space, the artist gives the spectator the chance to experience space and its’ emptiness, which constitutes the work and its’ place of exhibition. ?Mehmet Ali Uysal researches art and it’s context. The place of the work is the reason and cause for creating the work. In the end, the gallery space becomes part of the art work, its’ material, form and content. The context becomes the content.
