Kadriye İnal’s ‘Patchwork’ Sculptures

by Andy SmithPosted on


Kadriye İnal’s “patchwork” paper sculptures capture humanity in both form and the imperfect, abstract beauty found in our seams. The artist’s work has also been called collage, though she has said that it exists “somewhere between three and two dimensions, between reality and fiction.”


“According to Kadriye İnal, because dreams are the symbolic language of the subconscious mind, they create a sincere world as a result of their direct nature,” a past statement says. “In a constant pursuit after this fact, the artist deals with the reality in a conscious environment of dreams. As İnal creates her compositions on the basis of the conjunction of the real and the fictive, she opens the free and colorful doors of the imaginary world to viewers. In addition to each sculpture having its own story, the show as a whole presents images that offer countless interpretations to viewers”
