263 - Inci Kansu's Exhibition "Hot Relationships" in Ankara



My friend Inci Kansu is a most active paper artist, travelling and admonishing with her art the citizens of our island to treasure its culture. She is absolutely right with what she says that the artists have the obligation to put the finger in the wound because they have been taught to see and feel the changes in our world. I have been reporting on many of her exhibitions over the years and you will find my many reviews in this website, and I am very proud of what she is doing.Now, her recent exhibition was in Ankara and she comments herself on the philosophy of her work.
